Bayer 04 Leverkusen are reportedly set to replace their current Head Coach, Heiko Herrlich during the German winter break and the name of Norwich’s Daniel Farke is being mentioned in dispatches.
The story comes from a report in German media outlet RP Online in which the ups and downs of Leverkusen’s season are discussed. Apparently, this sort of speculation is nothing new to Herrlich, who has seen his side consistently inconsistent this season and they are currently sitting in 11th place in the Bundesliga, 10 points off the Champions League places.
Dutchman, Peter Bosz is the “red hot” favourite for the job but as is now becoming the norm whenever a Bundesliga job becomes available, Daniel Farke is being mentioned.
Clearly, the job he is doing at Norwich is not going unnoticed and until the Canaries agree a contract extension with him, this is not going to go away.
Having said that even if he does have a new deal at Norwich, a manager is just as likely to be stolen away from his club as a player if he’s doing well.
Bosz is currently out of work but had some success initially at Borussia Dortmund in his last job and he took Ajax to the Europa League Final prior to his Dortmund move in 2017.
It really is not worth getting yourself into a state because of this sort of speculation. For a start, Leverkusen haven’t even sacked Herrlich yet and according to this report, Bosz is the “red hot” favourite.
Farke, it appears, is a coach that is on their radar, as is Red Bull Salzburg Head Coach, Marco Rose.
If Farke were doing this well in the Premier League then it may be more of a problem but at the moment, I don’t think there’s anything to panic about just yet.
