Bayern Munich, ‘internal strife’ over Tuchel’s reappointment

There is internal disagreement.

“Bayern Munich are divided over whether Thomas Tuchel should be reappointed as coach,” the German version of Sky Sports reported on Thursday. The club’s president, Max Eberle, and Christoph Proint are in favor of Tuchel’s retention. Honorary chairman Uli Hoeness and chairman Karl-Heinz Rumenigge are against Tuchel’s reappointment.”

Tuchel’s future at Bayern Munich has been in the news recently. “Bayern Munich are considering reappointing Tuchel,” German journalist Christian Falk reported in Bild.

Tuchel took over at Bayern Munich midway through last season. Tuchel was hired by Bayern Munich after the club fired Julian Nagelsmann due to poor results. Tuchel immediately led the team to the German Bundesliga title.

Last season, Borussia Dortmund were in first place going into the final round. However, Dortmund lost to Mainz 05 in the final round. Bayern Munich, on the other hand, managed to pull off an upset by beating FC Koln in the final round.

Bayern Munich then went on a major reinforcement spree last summer. They signed Harry Kane, one of the best goal scorers in Premier League history. They also brought in Kim Min-Jae, who was named the best defender in the Italian Serie A last season.

However, Bayern Munich has been nothing short of spectacular this season. In the league, they were overwhelmed by Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who went undefeated. Leverkusen won the Bundesliga title for the first time in its history this season under the guidance of Xabi Alonso. In addition, Bayern Munich lost the German Super Cup, which was held before the season started. Add to that an early exit from the German Pokal Cup and a UEFA Champions League (UCL) final 토토 loss to Real Madrid.

After a season of up-and-down performances, Tuchel took responsibility and announced that he would step down at the end of the season. Bayern Munich quickly set out to find their next coach.

But everyone turned Bayern Munich down. Alonso, who was considered the first choice for the job, chose to stay at Leverkusen. Ralf Rangnick, Nagelsmann, Unai Emery, and others also expressed interest, but all turned down the job.

After struggling to find their next manager, Bayern Munich appear to be willing to stick with Tuchel after all. In particular, Manuel Neuer, Kane, and Eric Dier are said to want Tuchel to stay.

This naturally brings attention to the future of Kim Min-jae. Kim joined Bayern Munich ahead of this season and was immediately thrust into the starting lineup, but Dier, who joined from Tottenham Hotspur in January while the Bavarians were at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar, took over. Tuchel preferred the combination of Dyer and Matthias der Licht over Kim Min-Jae. Towards the end of the season, Kim struggled to find a place in the starting lineup.

At the same time, Tuchel’s reappointment was being talked about. It’s a tricky situation for Kim. If Tuchel is in charge of Bayern Munich next season, he won’t be able to guarantee himself a starting spot.
