Assistant coach Anthony Barry raves about Thomas Tuchel

Assistant coach Anthony Barry raved about Thomas Tuchel and talked about his goals with Bayern Munich.

“I admired Thomas from the start. We have many parallels – how we work and how we see football. We try to push each other and improve,” the former England professional is quoted as saying on the FC Bayern website .

His relationship with Tuchel, who wanted Barry on his team as soon as possible after signing in Munich, is “very respectful and friendly”.

The German record champions had tough negotiations with Chelsea to free Barry. “We fought long and hard,” said Tuchel at the end of April after the 36-year-old’s arrival.

At Säbener Straße, Barry is primarily responsible for the standards. “As a top team, you also have to be top with set pieces. It’s an important area for us to work on.”

Thomas Tuchel has high expectations of Anthony Barry

In Tuchel’s eyes, his ideal partner is one of the best in his field: “His work with standard situations at Chelsea was on a completely new level for me.”

Barry wants to take the next step after coaching stints at Wigan Athletic, Chelsea and the Portuguese and Belgian national teams. “We’re here to win. That’s the goal when you come to Bayern Munich. It’s a big club with a big history. I’m very happy and proud to be here,” he explained.

In addition, it is “no problem” that Barry is currently still training in English: “The players understand me, but my goal is to be able to coach in German.”
