Record national player Lothar Matthäus has criticized Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel. “Of course, many mistakes were made before the change of coach, which ultimately led to this situation. But the team, which was still on triple course under Nagelsmann, plays worse under Tuchel,” said Matthäus in Picture.
Before the season finale on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky) at 1. FC Köln, Bayern are only in second place behind Borussia Dortmund and have to hope for BVB to slip up if they win. The record champions had previously failed with Tuchel in the DFB Cup and in the Champions League. The first season without a title since 2012 is imminent.
The Bayern squad is “individually so strong that you have to at least win a championship with him. But the team doesn’t work because everyone is busy with themselves,” complained Matthäus (62). And Tuchel “increased the uncertainty because at his press conferences, which seem a bit strange to me, he always talks about how difficult everything is and what doesn’t work, instead of standing in front of the team. In addition, the unnecessary Müller discussion and too many position changes.”
According to Sky expert Matthäus, Tuchel is already under a lot of pressure for the next season. That’s one of the reasons why he’s demanding new players contributed to the uncertainty of the team.”
