TSG Hoffenheim wants to hire Bayern Munich II coach Sebastian Hoeness as their new manager to replace Alfred Schreuder. They let Schreduer go last month and are looking to find a replacement by the time the club resumes training in August. Reports from both SportBild and kicker suggested that Hoffenheim is keen on bringing in Hoeness, who guided Bayern Munich’s reserves to winning the 3. Liga this season.

Per a new report from SPORT1, Hoffenheim has already agreed terms with Hoeness, but Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic wants Hoeness to stay. Hoeness’s contract with Bayern runs through 2023, so the club has the leverage not to let him leave. The question is rather whether Salihamidzic and Bayern’s front office can convince Hoeness himself to stay? This is a massive opportunity for him to take a big step forward in his managerial career, and it’d be hard for him to see a chance like that go to waste. He has a lot to consider.
