Bayern coach Thomas was surprised by Julian Nagelsmann’s sacking. Thomas Tuchel has been formally introduced as Bayern Munich’s new coach after Julian Nagelsmann was unexpectedly let go. He mentioned ‘s dismissal in his first press conference as the Bavarians’ strategist.
Tuchel stated, “I can sympathize with him, but it’s not my job” (as quoted by the Twitter user @iMiaSanMia). “Have you spoken to him? Definitely not immediately. I don’t want to treat you poorly. Having his perspective right now also does not help. Our paths will eventually meet, and we’ll converse.
Tuchel was shocked to learn that his predecessor had left his position while Bayern Munich was in a strong place in the Bundesliga and the Champions League, just like Antonio Conte was during THAT handshake.
Bayern coach Thomas was surprised by Julian Nagelsmann’s sacking.
The timing was unexpected; I didn’t anticipate it, and there had been no prior communication, according to the 49-year-old former coach of Chelsea FC and Borussia Dortmund. “I thought my career would continue abroad. On Tuesday night, the first interview took place. The extent of the challenge determined whether or not I would take it on.
Tuchel reportedly had prior contact with Bayern but decided against accepting the position because he couldn’t wait and didn’t want to put anyone under undue strain. Tuchel remembered, “I’ve been in extremely close communication with Bayern before, but back then I couldn’t wait.” Never should anyone be put under pressure. This time, everything moved along pretty quickly; for me, it was the best option.
