Bayern Munich appoints Thomas Tuchel as Julian Nagelsmann’s successor

By FPL360


Bayern Munich is once again in the headlines of European football news. Recent reports suggest that the reigning Bundesliga and European champions are planning to sack head coach Julian Nagelsmann and replace him with Thomas Tuchel, who is currently unemployed after winning the Champions League with Chelsea last season.

The news has come as a surprise to many, especially considering Bayern’s president Herbert Hainer’s announcement just a few weeks ago about their long-term plans with Nagelsmann. The 35-year-old coach, who was signed by Bayern from RB Leipzig for a record fee of €25 million, has been in charge of the Bavarians for only one season but has already helped them win the league title.

The decision to let go of Nagelsmann has reportedly been influenced by Bayern’s recent dip in form. The Bavarians have lost their last two games against Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen, and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has been critical of the team’s performance. “There was so little drive, mentality, duels. This team is so good when the mentality is there right from the start, but just as bad when they don’t show mentality and think they can do everything just with their quality,” he said following their loss to Leverkusen.

If the reports are true and Tuchel does indeed become Bayern’s new coach, it won’t be the first time he has been linked with the club. In 2018, just before he took the job at Paris Saint-Germain, Tuchel was also reportedly a candidate to take over from Jupp Heynckes at Bayern.

Tuchel is known for his tactical prowess and his ability to manage big personalities in the dressing room. He has a wealth of experience, having led PSG, Borussia Dortmund, and Chelsea in the past. His recent success with the London club, where he won the Champions League, FA Cup, and guided them to a top-four finish, has made him one of the most sought-after coaches in European football.

If Tuchel does become Bayern’s new coach, he will have big shoes to fill. The Bavarians have dominated German football in recent years, winning the league title in each of the last nine seasons. They also have high expectations in Europe, having won the Champions League six times in their history.

However, Tuchel has shown that he is capable of handling high-pressure situations and getting the best out of his players. His arrival would also bring a new dynamic to Bayern’s squad, and it would be interesting to see how he adapts to working with some of the biggest names in World football. Bayern fans will be hoping that Tuchel can replicate the success of his predecessors and lead them to more glory in the years to come.
