As per a report from Christian Falk of German outlet SportBild, Mauricio Pochettino is not among the potential candidates being considered to take over as the new manager of Bayern Munich.
Spurs wield the axe
As has since been widely-covered in the media, Argentine tactician Pochettino was somewhat-surprisingly relieved of his duties at Spurs two weeks ago.
On the back of an abysmal start to the season, which saw the north Londoners dwelling in 14th in the Premier League table, the board at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium came to the decision to part ways with their long-time boss:

Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, was instilled as Poch’s replacement less than 12 hours later:

Bayern ruled out
As such, speculation has since inevitably been rampant regarding where Pochettino could end up next.
Despite Spurs’ struggles under his guidance this season, the South American is still viewed by many as one of world football’s finest tacticians.
Among the most hotly-tipped potential destinations for Pochettino, meanwhile, have been German giants Bayern Munich.
Mauricio Pochettino is being considered by Bayern Munich to take over as permanent manager at the Allianz Arena, according to Sky in Germany.

The Bundesliga champions parted ways with Niko Kovac last month, with Hans-Dieter Flick currently tasked with interim duties at the Allianz Arena.
As per the aforementioned update courtesy of the reliable Christian Falk of SportBild, though, Pochettino will not be taking over the reins in Bavaria any time soon.
The 47-year-old is reportedly not among the candidates being considered by the Bayern hierarchy.
