FC Bayern: Tuchel apparently put FCB bosses under pressure

Thomas Tuchel apparently urged FC Bayern Munich to make a quick decision on the question of coaching. How The Athletic reported, Tuchel informed the Bayern management through his advisors that they must act immediately – otherwise the coach could sign with another club. Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid and his ex-club Paris Saint-Germain were also reportedly interested.

Ultimately, they decided to fire Nagelsmann immediately and sign Tuchel. Loud Picture first contact was made after the 1:2 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.

Tuchel was already considered a candidate in 2018: CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Salihamidzic even met him in Munich at the time, but President Uli Hoeneß did everything to extend the contract with Jupp Heynckes. When he finally refused to sign, Tuchel was already in the word at PSG. Despite desperate advances from the Munich bosses, Tuchel did not change his plans – and FC Bayern had to be content with Niko Kovac.

Leipzig apparently continues to benefit from Nagelsmann premiums

FC Bayern: Hamann can understand the change of coach

TV expert Dietmar Hamann can understand the change of coach at Bayern. He believes “that the opportunity is very, very much greater than the risk. I wouldn’t call it a risk. The coach (Julian Nagelsmann, ed.) was given the chance long enough”. Tuchel “worked with the world’s best players at Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea FC and then understood how to bring in a certain spirit”.

According to Hamann, the recent 1-2 draw at Bayer Leverkusen had a major influence on the decision. After the Leverkusen game, “you probably just made the decision that you said, ‘We’re not making the progress or progress on the pitch with him that we imagined’. And that’s why it was the only logical thing to do separate,” said the 49-year-old.

Lip service like that of President Herbert Hainer “makes you unbelievable”. Earlier this week, Hainer had im table football asserts: “We want to build something with him. You can see clear progress in these year and a half. Julian is doing very well. The coaching discussion in between came from outside, we didn’t start it off the fence.”

One must, demanded Matthew, “back to the roots, to family interactions”. That “always made Bayern strong in the past,” he said, “I’ve missed that in the last one to one and a half years.” The separation from Nagelsmann is “actually no longer a big surprise” for him. The former FC Bayern captain cites “the sporting but also personal situation” surrounding Nagelsmann as reasons.
