Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich announce manager Thomas Tuchel's departure at season end amidst recent struggles

Posted : 21 February 2024

Bayern Munich announced on Wednesday that manager Thomas Tuchel will depart at the end of the season. The decision comes amid ongoing speculation about Tuchel's future, with Bayern currently eight points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen and facing recent losses in both domestic and Champions League competitions.


Tuchel expressed his commitment to achieving maximum success until the season's end in a statement, with Bayern striving to close the gap on Leverkusen and avoid missing out on the domestic title for the first time since 2011-12.


Tuchel took over as Bayern manager last March, succeeding Julien Nagelsmann. While leading Bayern to the Bundesliga title last season, the team's recent struggles have prompted the decision for a managerial change. Despite notable summer signings such as Harry Kane and Kim Min-Jae, Bayern has faced challenges, losing four times and drawing twice in 22 games.


CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen initially dismissed discussions about Tuchel's future after a recent defeat, but the club has now decided to part ways at the end of the season, aiming for a fresh footballing direction with a new head coach for the 2024-25 season.


Bayern Munich's CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen acknowledged the decision to end Tuchel's tenure was reached through good, open discussion. The club aims to pursue a new direction and explicitly called on the team to maximize their performance in the remaining Champions League and Bundesliga matches.


With 12 games left in the season, Bayern seeks to focus on the future and anticipates reaching the quarterfinals in the Champions League, despite a 1-0 first-leg loss to Lazio.
