Bayern to part ways with Tuchel at the end of season


PSG Manager

Bayern Munich and head coach Thomas Tuchel will part ways at the conclusion of the season following a 3-2 loss to Bochum in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

The decision to end the collaboration with the 50-year-old comes as Bayern, who have clinched 11 consecutive league titles, find themselves eight points behind Bayer Leverkusen and suffered a 3-0 defeat to Xabi Alonso’s league-leading team earlier this month.

According to CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen, an “amicable conversation” led to the decision to conclude Tuchel’s contract, which expires in June. Dreesen stated, “Our goal is to carry out a sporting realignment with a new coach for the 2024/25 season.”

Tuchel acknowledged, “We have agreed that we will end our collaboration after this season,” affirming his commitment to achieving maximum success until then.

Tuchel took over as Bayern’s head coach in March 2023, succeeding current Germany national team manager Julian Nagelsmann. He secured his first German league title on the final day of the 2022-23 campaign.

Despite guiding Bayern to the Champions League knockout stages this season, they faced struggles domestically, including losses in the Supercup to RB Leipzig and exiting the DFB Pokal in the second round to third-tier Saarbrucken in November.

Defeat to Bochum marked their fourth loss in the league and seventh overall this season.

Though Tuchel has won 22 of Bayern’s 32 matches across all competitions this campaign, internal discussions have highlighted concerns over player form and confidence, with questions arising about Tuchel’s ability to maintain a strong rapport with the team.

As Bayern prepare to face RB Leipzig next Saturday, uncertainties linger regarding their 2023-24 campaign for trophies amidst challenges in form and team dynamics.
