Thomas Tuchel will be serving a touchline ban when Bayern Munich welcome Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.
As a result, a replacement is tasked with tactically outclassing Erik ten Hag — and he’s a man that’s had plenty of experience all across the leagues as both a player and a coach.
Ex-Chelsea manager Tuchel was sent off in Bayern’s final Champions league game last term, having to be held back by his assistants whilst shouting at the referee as Man City sealed a 4-1 quarter-final win on aggregate.
The German had been upset about an incident between Kingsley Coman and Aymeric Laport, and as a result he’ll now spend Wednesday’s blockbuster game — which is live on talkSPORT — in the stands with assistant Arno Michels.
Bayern’s first team coaches will be on the touchline instead — Zsolt Low and, most notably, ex-English football journeyman and Liverpool fan Anthony Barry.
The former midfielder began his youth career at Everton before signing for Coventry, before moving to Accrington Stanley to begin his senior career in 2005 and later making the switch to Yeovil and then Chester in 2008.
That was where Barry suffered his first career relegation down to the Conference. He then joined Wrexham in 2010, but left the club just one week after signing an 18-month deal, signing for Conference North side Fleetwood who offered to pay him three times his Wrexham salary.
Barry soon became teammates with future Premier League winner and iconic Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, with the pair both at Fleetwood in 2012 as the club achieved promotion to the Football League for the first time.
