Bayern Munich SACK Thomas Tuchel

Bayern Munich have decided to part ways with manager Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season amid their disastrous run of form. 

It’s been a tough few weeks for Bayern after they suffered a 3-0 defeat by league leaders Bayern Leverkusen, a 1-0 loss to Lazio in the Champions League and a disastrous 3-2 defeat by VFL Bochum on Sunday. 

The club are now facing the prospect of their first season without winning a trophy since 2011-12, with Leverkusen eight points clear of Bayern in the Bundesliga table and, with that in mind, have parted ways with Tuchel.

In a statement on the club’s website yesterday, Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen said: ‘In an open, good conversation we came to the decision to mutually end our collaboration in the summer. 

‘Our goal is to carry out a sporting realignment with a new coach for the 2024-25 season. Until then, every individual in the club is expressly challenged to achieve the maximum possible in the Champions League and the Bundesliga.

“I also explicitly hold the team responsible. Especially in the Champions League, we are convinced that after the 0-1 defeat in the first leg at Lazio Rome, we will advance to the quarter-finals in the second leg in our fully occupied Allianz Arena with our fans behind us.’

Meanwhile, Tuchel also reflected on the decision, as he said: ‘We have agreed that we will end our collaboration after this season. Until then, I and my coaching team will of course continue to do everything we can to ensure maximum success.’

The former Chelsea boss — who only joined the club in March 2023 — has a deal that runs until June 2025 however the Bavarian side have opted to cut that short by a year. 

Meanwhile, BILD claim that Bayern star Harry Kane is at the centre of a dressing room chasm in Munich as Tuchel’s reign in Bavaria continues to crumble.  The report claims that six key players — including Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry and Leon Goretzka — fall into an anti-Tuchel camp, with six others in support of him.  Kane, Eric Dier and Leroy Sane are all part of the player group who approve of Tuchel’s authority at Bayern. — Daily Mail.
