Three days ago, Bayern Munich announced the sacking of head coach Niko Kovac. The dismissal was widely regarded as a new low for an academy that has won more European Cups than any other and boasted some of football’s greatest players (Lothar Matthaus). Ralf Rangnick is now under pressure to make changes at RB Leipzig ahead of their match against Fortuna Düsseldorf this Sunday. Here are three stars he should replace with in January:

Paul Parker, a former Manchester United player, believes that incoming manager Ralf Rangnick should try to unload two key players in the January transfer window: Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial.
Rangnick was named United’s interim manager on Monday, and will take over from caretaker manager Michael Carrick once his visa is approved.
The 63-year-old will lead the squad until the conclusion of the season, when he will give over command to a new permanent manager, who has yet to be named.
Until then, the German will have a voice and will have an impact on the club’s activities in the January transfer window, when Parker believes Pogba and Martial should be sold.
Pogba’s contract expires in the summer, and no new agreement has been reached, so the former England full-back believes it’s time to cash in on the Frenchman, who he believes will not fit into Rangnick’s plans.
‘You don’t want someone like him [Pogba] around the club,’ Parker told Talking Devils. ‘If you want him to go in January, make a decent offer since you won’t get anything six months later.’ Simply take it.

If Pogba isn’t participating, he won’t be a positive addition to the dressing room. I’m thinking about bringing in a German coach to observe Pogba. Could Pogba play for Thomas Tuchel in the way that he is playing now, if you look at two of the best managers in the league? There’s no way. Is he a Liverpool player? There’s no way.
‘On a continuous basis, there is no zest, no desire, no enthusiasm.’ And, based on what we’ve seen from people at Liverpool and Chelsea, consistency is crucial. He isn’t demonstrating that, he wouldn’t be participating, and I don’t believe he fits into the ideas of the new management.’

Martial’s contract does not expire until 2024, but Parker is not a fan of the forward, feeling he lacks the work ethic to succeed.
‘Can you get Martial to sprint about, close down, and do work without the ball to help the team when they get it back?’ ‘I don’t believe so,’ Parker continued.

‘They’re the first two, and they’re the most important ones [to go].’ Both are expensive, yet you may sit and wait for your money to arrive, but it will remain stagnant.
‘You don’t need sour apples in the barrel right now; you need optimism and belief, and that isn’t going to happen with two individuals who aren’t going to be pleasant to be around if they aren’t playing consistently.’
