Vincent Kompany is now the new head coach of Bayern Munich. He has the challenging task of leading Der Rekordmeister to success after a season without any titles. He is already busy shaping his team.

Bayern Munich was not satisfied with the previous season. The record champions finished only third in the Bundesliga, far behind the champions Bayer Leverkusen. In the German Cup, third division team Saarbr├╝cken proved to be too strong. And in the Champions League semi-finals, Bayern lost to Real Madrid.

Kompany faces the difficult task of turning around this downward spiral, a task that several other coaches did not want to take on. However, there is more than enough quality in the Bavarian squad. But some key players are at risk of leaving during the summer transfer window.

Some key players could be allowed to leave for the right offer, including Matthijs de Ligt and Leon Goretzka. Alphonso Davies and Joshua Kimmich have also been linked with a departure for a while. However, a key player will now remain on board for longer.

Bayern officially announced the contract extension of Aleksander Pavlovic. The 20-year-old midfielder, a product of Bayern’s youth academy, decided to commit his future to Der Rekordmeister for the long term. He signed a new contract until mid-2029.

Pavlovic had a breakthrough season with the main team in Munich. His good performances earned him a spot in the German Euro squad. Unfortunately, he had to miss the tournament in his home country due to an injury. Now he is somewhat comforted with a long and improved contract with his club. This is surely good news for Kompany.
