All FCB coaches in history
Published2 months ago
The coaching position at FC Bayern Munich is one of the most coveted in football. In more than 120 years countless names have been allowed to bear this title. Here at SPOX we list all FCB trainers in history for you.
32 championship titles, 20 triumphs in the DFB Cup, 11 German Supercup victories, plus six wins in the Champions League and European Cup, but also numerous other trophies lie in the lavish trophy cabinet of FC Bayern Munich, by far the most successful German football club. It is therefore not surprising that the coaching position in Munich is always accompanied by pressure to succeed.
Weak phases and crises are not tolerated for long, as a number of coaches on Säbener Straße have experienced first-hand. With Julian Nagelsmann it has now caught the next one.
Although the only 35-year-old is with FCB in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the DFB Cup, but in the Bundesliga after a 1-2 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen handed over the lead to Borussia Dortmund, the club pulled the ripcord and separated from him. Thomas Tuchel, former BVB and Mainz coach and Champions League winner with Chelsea, is to take on his role.
SPOX takes this as an opportunity to list all coaches in the history of FC Bayern. Below is the answer.
FC Bayern Munich: All FCB coaches in history
FC Bayern Munich was founded on February 27, 1900, making it one of the oldest clubs in the country. However, the club only had its first coach two years later, when Dutchman Dr. Willem Hesselink slipped into this role.
It took a few years and coaches before the club from the Bavarian capital was able to celebrate success for the first time. In the 1931/32 season, with Richard Dombi on the sidelines, the first championship title and in 1957 with Willibald Hahn the first DFB Cup win. But at that time, FCB was still a long way from the consistency it is today, and the club’s supporters had to wait more than 35 years for the next championship. In 1968/69 it was that time again – the coach then: Branko Zebec.
During Udo Lattek’s first term of office (03/14/1970 to 01/02/1975) they managed to defend the championship for the first time and also to triumph at European level. Later club legends such as Gerd Müller, Paul Breitner and Franz Beckenbauer ensured the desired results on the pitch. From 1973/74 to 1975/76 they won the European Cup three times in a row.
In the 1980s, the Munich team finally advanced to become the big dominator in Germany. Coach Pal Csernai, Udo Lattek (for the second time) and Jupp Heynckes (first term) secured six championship titles and three cup wins in the 1980s.
The time after that was marked by many changes of coach. In the search for consistency, seven coaches had to step down in the 90s: Sören Lerby, Erich Ribbeck, Franz Beckenbauer, Otto Rehhagel and Giovanni Trapattoni. It wasn’t until Ottmar Hitzfeld that peace returned to the club – and with him came success European level. It was his team, led by Stefan Effenberg and Oliver Kahn, that won the Champions League in 2000/21.
The Swiss is still the coach with the longest tenure in Munich – he worked on the sidelines for 2191 days from July 1st, 1998 to June 30th, 2004. He was succeeded in the summer of 2004 by Felix Magath, who stayed for three years before Hitzfeld returned for a short stint and won the championship for the seventh time (fifth with FCB).
In 2008/09, Jürgen Klinsmann, who was released five rounds before the end, had to admit defeat to VfL Wolfsburg with his team in the battle for the trophy until Louis van Gaal heralded a new era in 2009. In his very first season, the Dutchman missed the treble by just one game when FCB lost the Champions League final 0-2 to Inter Milan.
But the fans didn’t have to wait long for this historic event – the treble – anyway. Jupp Heynckes was German champion, DFB Cup winner and Champions League winner with FC Bayern in 2012/13, for which he later also received the individual award of World Club Coach of the Year.
With Heynckes, the championship series that still exists today, which currently stands at ten in a row, began. Pep Guardiola, Carlo Ancelotti, Heynckes again, Niko Kovac, Hansi Flick and Julian Nagelsmann – all successors at least won the championship, Hansi Flick even led his team to the “sextuple” in the 2020/21 season.
