It's rare for such speculation over the future of a maiden-season coach to be the focus of build-up to a major cup final - and yet, that is exactly what swirls around Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac as he looks to lift the DFB-Pokal for the second campaign in a row.

Yet it is thought that he has underperformed in the role, having reportedly lost the confidence of the board and fallen out with a number of key players over the season, while his failure to progress Bayern further in European competition is likely to remain another black mark against his name.

Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick, who will also be waving goodbye to the role when he returns to become the club's sporting director after Saturday, remains unconvinced that their rivals will swoop for Werner, feeling they would have already put out feelers if they were interested.
