Thomas Tuchel for Lothar Matthäus one of the main culprits

Record national player Lothar Matthäus sees coach Thomas Tuchel as one of the main culprits for the impending end of the championship series at his former club Bayern Munich. “He had at least two months. Losing this championship is also his responsibility,” wrote Matthäus in his Sky column.

Tuchel took over Munich in second place from coach Julian Nagelsmann in mid-March. If Borussia Dortmund beats FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky), Bayern’s first season without a title since 2012 will be sealed. “A lot has to change, on and off the field, so that things can go in the right direction again,” said Matthäus.

CEO Oliver Kahn would leave Matthäus in office. “The top floor hasn’t been working together for too long either. Similar to the team, the new start here didn’t really feel complete yet, so the next one is already being discussed,” wrote the 62-year-old.

He therefore wishes Kahn “that he can continue and does not want to hit it here”. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic also made mistakes and “apparently not only made good transfers that fit together and harmonize. We all praised him for the great names, but this team has no bite, no will, no real identification with this club. Otherwise would they play football differently if they put on this shirt”.
