Thomas Tuchel and FC Bayern: You keep flirting



Thomas Tuchel and FC Bayern: You keep flirting

Julian Nagelsmann is firmly in the saddle at FC Bayern despite a crisis in earnings, and yet the name of Thomas Tuchel as a possible successor has been in the media for days if all else fails in Munich. Tuchel is no stranger to FC Bayern and has been a topic on Säbener Strasse several times. But would he even want to? And would he suit FC Bayern? SPOX and GOAL answer the most important questions.

Thomas Tuchel at Bayern: Why is there speculation?

There are two reasons for this: After a very promising start to the season with a couple of impressive victories at RB Leipzig (5: 3), Eintracht Frankfurt (6: 1) and VfL Bochum (7: 0), FC Bayern is last in an earnings crisis. FC Bayern has been waiting for a win for four Bundesliga games. For the Munich team, this is the longest winning streak in over 20 years, which resulted in them slipping down to fifth place.

As with every top club with irrefutable title ambitions, the fact that FC Bayern is in a bad mood. “We are all dissatisfied and in a bad mood,” said Oliver Kahn on Sunday at FC Bayern’s official Oktoberfest visit. And Munich are not immune to the usual mechanisms of speculating about the coach, even if there are no signals from the club that Julian Nagelsmann is in any way up for discussion.

When Thomas Tuchel lost his job at Chelsea during this phase of all things, speculation on social media began on the same day, although the earnings crisis at Bayern had not yet reached this level. Four winless games later, Tuchel’s unemployment is a welcome gift.

“I’m sure that the name, if it hasn’t already happened, will come up in the next two weeks,” said ex-national player Dietmar Hamann recently Sky90 about Tuchel. Statements that reinforce the speculation. After all, there is a clear statement from FC Bayern. “We’re not dealing with any other coaches now. We’re totally convinced of Julian,” said CEO Kahn. But the ex-professional also knows that only the results will calm things down.
