Bayern Munich would consider Ralph Hasenhuttl - Uli Hoeness

Ralph Hasenhuttl has preached defense in leading Leipzig to a strong start.
Ralph Hasenhuttl's impressive management of RB Leipzig has impressed Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness says RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenhuttl could be a candidate to coach the Bavarian club in the future.

Hasenhuttl takes Leipzig to the Allianz Arena on Wednesday to meet Bayern in a top-of-the-table clash that will determine which of the two sides will end 2016 at the Bundesliga summit, and Hoeness is impressed by the job the 49-year-old has done.

"If we do opt to find a German-speaking coach in future, then he is definitely one of the three candidates we would have to think about," Hoeness told kicker magazine.

"It's not an issue in the slightest right now. First he needs to gain some coaching experience and get his hands dirty, but you can never tell what might happen in five years in football."

Hasenhuttl spent the final two years of his playing career on Bayern's books, albeit only for their reserve team between 2002 and 2004.

The Austrian remained in Munich after gaining his coaching badge, first working as youth-team coach at Unterhaching before taking charge of the first team in 2007 for three seasons.

He subsequently spent two years with Aalen and three at Ingolstadt, whom he led into the Bundesliga for the first time, and kept there, before joining Leipzig in the summer.

After three seasons with Pep Guardiola as head coach, Bayern appointed Carlo Ancelotti in the summer and he has led them to the top of the table -- level on points with Leipzig -- and into the Champions League and DFB Pokal rounds of 16 in the first five months of his three-year contract.
