Director Thomas Tuchel went to work for the first time.
Bayern Munich announced on its official website on the 25th (Korean time), “The club has sent manager Julian Nagelsmann and appointed Thomas Tuchel as manager. The contract period is until June 2025.” It was only a day after a report from German media ‘Bild’ that “Munich plans to immediately part ways with coach Nagelsmann and immediately appoint Thomas Tuchel as coach.”
Nagelsmann was a manager who had a reputation as a capable and young manager in European football. Recognized for his leadership at Hoffenheim and Leipzig, he entered a big club called Bayern Munich in 2021. There were concerns, but in the 2021-22 season, he was building a successful career by winning the German Bundesliga and also lifting the DFB-Super Cup안전놀이터.
However, the Munich leadership was not satisfied with Nagelsmann’s recent performance. Last season, they lost to Villarreal in the quarterfinals of the UCL, and at the beginning of this season, they recorded 3 draws and 1 loss in the league, not winning for 4 matches and failing to accumulate points. Above all, Munich is currently one point behind Dortmund in the league and is in second place.
Eventually, Munich decided to sack Nagelsmann on the 24th, carry out the managerial position at Chelsea as a replacement, and appoint Thomas Tuchel, who was sacked at the beginning of this season. This decision did not take a day. On the 25th, coach Nagelsmann was reported to have visited the club’s office and received an ultimatum, and the news of the hardship was announced immediately after the negotiations were over, and the appointment of coach Tuchel was also announced.
Tuhel was unemployed for a while. Chelsea announced the resignation of coach Tuchel in September of last year in order to establish a new club culture and improve performance under the owner system of Todd Boelli. This news came as a shock to many people because it was Tuhel who also led Chelsea to win the 2020-21 season European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL).
But now, Tuhel found a new job after about six months. On the morning of the 25th (local time), coach Tuchel, who has made a new nest in Munich, went to Munich’s home stadium, Allianz Arena, for the first time. German media ‘Bild’ captured the scene of director Tuchel’s first commute. Hassan Salihamidjic, who accompanied the team, welcomed coach Tuchel with a happy face. Coach Tuchel is expected to make his debut in the match against ‘league leader’ Borussia Dortmund on the 2nd after the A match break.
