The position of Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel, 51, is rapidly shifting.

“There may be a problem between Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel and the players,” Germany’s Bavarian Football reported on Thursday (Aug. 24), claiming that there is a problem with the atmosphere at the club.

Bayern Munich lost 0-1 to Werder Bremen in the 18th round of the 2023-2024 Bundesliga at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, on Nov. 21.

The failure to pick up a point leaves Munich with 41 points (13 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses) and no points clear of first-place Bayer 04 Leverkusen (48 points).

The Bavarians had 68% of the possession in the match, registering 22 shots on target, but fell victim to one of Bremen’s counter-attacks. Harry Kane, who has been a prolific goalscorer, was held to just three shots on target.

After conceding to Mitchell Weisser in the 14th minute of the second half, Munich pushed hard for a goal, but were unable to find one.

The absence of Kim Min-jae was one of the reasons for the loss. The Bavarians lined up with the Matthias Der Licht-Dayo Upamecano combination in defense, 토토사이트 but they were unable to stop the opposition strikers on the flanks and conceded a goal.

This was Munich’s first loss to Bremen in 16 years.

Prior to this match, the last time Munich lost to Bremen was on September 21, 2008, under current national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann. The Bavarians suffered a heavy 2-5 defeat.

This defeat marked the beginning of a sharp decline in Tuchel’s standing.

German and Munich “legend” Lothar Matthaeus said, “Munich is not cohesive, not stable. They are not compact. They are not a championship contender.”

In addition, the German ‘Bild’ reported on the 23rd, “The club’s honorary chairman and board member Ulri Hoeness doubts Tuchel’s ability. He is not in favor of his quick turnaround, but Höhnes wants to see improvements and results,” adding that Tuchel is being viewed with a lot of suspicion.

Tuchel has also reportedly clashed with Munich’s hardline supporters.

In the match against Bremen, the fans boycotted the early chants and later chanted “Passion is not something you can push a button for,” according to Bild. This was apparently in response to Tuchel’s interview in which he reprimanded the players.

Bavarian Football wrote: “There was a lot of anger towards Tuchel for criticizing the squad. It clearly shows how the relationship between the boss (coach) and the employee (player) can be out of kilter,” and that there were problems between Tuchel and the squad.

Tuchel described the loss to Bremen as “a lack of positive energy. We were sloppy, we were static. It’s not good enough, I don’t know how to explain why so many players didn’t reach the level they showed in training,” Tuchel said, blaming the players.

“Der Licht is definitely a player that Munich wanted. Julian Nagelsmann, Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic, who all wanted him, left the club. Then all of a sudden there’s a new coach who doesn’t play the Bundesliga’s best defender,” he said, criticizing Der Licht for not using him as a starter.

Bavarian Football went on to point out that Tuchel has caused problems at all of his past stops. “Tuchel didn’t listen to his players at Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea. He won’t do the same for them in Munich,” questioning Tuchel’s ability to manage the squad.

In fact, Tuchel has a reputation for being a temperamental coach, 토토사이트 추천 and when Dortmund sought his services from Mainz in the past, Mainz called Dortmund president Michael Schoeck to warn him.

Tuchel’s position is shaky. It’s possible that Kim Min-jae will have a new coach when he returns from the Asian Cup.
