No turn: Coach Tuchel leaves Bayern Munich

Tuchel's farewell to Bayern Munich is fixed


TRainer Thomas Tuchel will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the current season. The 50-year-old said on Friday in Munich before his final match with the German football champions on Saturday that the club and he had not reached an agreement for further cooperation and transformation after agreeing to separate at the end of February. At TSG Hoffenheim.

Tuchel explained: “This is the last press conference on Säbener Strasse. We did not reach an agreement for further cooperation. That is why the agreement remained in February.” “Last week, there was only a theoretical possibility of making a 180-degree turnaround,” Tuchel said. “The initiative came from the club.” It was difficult for him to leave the team.

After the Bayern coach did not find a successor in recent months, the termination of the contract agreed with the 50-year-old Tuchel was reconsidered after strong performances in the Champions League. When searching for a coach, Bayern had to remove several top candidates such as Xabi Alonso (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Nagelsmann (national coach) and Ralf Rangnick (OFB team president) from the list of candidates. Contacts with other coaches such as top Austrian Oliver Glasner, who now works at Crystal Palace, did not work out either.

The Munich team decided to part ways with Tuchel at the end of the season in February. The former Champions League winner with Chelsea did not win the championship with the Munich team until more than a year ago in the 2022/23 season, in which he came to Munich in March 2023 to succeed Nagelsmann. This season, the team was eliminated from the tournament by Bayer Leverkusen after 11 consecutive titles.
