According to former Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger, former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has always been interested in managing Bayern Munich.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich sacked head coach Niko Kovac on Sunday, hours after a 5-1 drubbing by Eintracht Frankfurt.

Kovac was sacked despite leading Bayern Munich to the league and cup double last season.

“I can imagine Mourinho in Germany,” Schweinsteiger, who played under Mourinho at Manchester United, told Deutsche Welle.

“I remember he was always asking me about Bayern and the Bundesliga. During our away games, there was always Bundesliga on TV.

“He really knew every single player, even from the smaller teams. He was also learning German.”
