Thomas Tuchel and FC Bayern are parting ways in the summer. The international press is speculating about the successor in Munich and about where Tuchel himself will go now.

FC Bayern Munich and its coach Thomas Tuchel are parting ways in the summer. Record national player Lothar Matthäus considers the announced contract termination to be logical. “It didn’t work right from the start, it was a misunderstanding,” said the former world footballer on Sky on Wednesday. “Separating is a step in the right direction.” And this is what the international press writes:


„Sport“: “The news that Tuchel will be leaving FC Bayern puts him directly on Barça’s list of candidates. (Club boss) Joan Laporta has followed his career closely and could consider him as an option for the coaching position.”

„OK“: “The German coach is therefore fully involved in FC Barcelona’s casting as the successor to Xavi Hernandez next season.”

“It’s a very, very hard job for Tuchel now”

FC Bayern and coach Thomas Tuchel will go their separate ways at the end of the season. WELT TV football reporter Paul Klinzing is surprised by the timing of the announcement: “This is a very difficult situation for both sides.”

„AS“: “Xabi Alonso is the boardroom’s favorite to succeed Tuchel. Bayern will do everything they can to convince the Spanish coach. Alonso will also be courted by Liverpool after Jürgen Klopp’s term at Anfield ends.”

“Sports world”: “And what happens if Tuchel leads Bayern to the Champions League title? (…) A year ago, the management of FC Bayern, which was actually in a better situation, took a different approach with Nagelsmann. The coach at the time was immediately shown the door.”

“Brand”: “The sporting crisis and the bad relationship (Tuchel) with the heavyweights in the squad, especially Joshua Kimmich, have accelerated events (…) Xabi Alonso is now the number one candidate.”


„Daily Mail“: “It raises the question of what’s next for the 50-year-old after he also left his previous job at Chelsea in a similar fog. His partner, Natalie Guerreiro Max, lives in London and after his short but successful spell with the Blues he has admirers at many Premier League clubs.”

„Telegraph“: “Thomas Tuchel will put the top clubs in England, and possibly the English Football Association, on alert as he favors a move back to England if he leaves Bayern Munich at the end of the season.”


“Gazzetta dello Sport”: “Bayern-Tuchel: Moving forward together, but for a limited time: At the end of the season it’s time to say goodbye. Bayern have decided to continue with the coach, but only until the summer.”

Opinion from Thomas Tuchel

“Corriere della Sera”: “Tuchel and Bayern Munich: Official divorce at the end of the season. Bayern are the third “giant” in Europe to announce the separation from their coach: after Liverpool, who started the ballet at the end of January – although it was actually Jürgen Klopp who announced at least a year’s break – close behind from Barcelona.”


„Blick“: “The irony of history: Because Tuchel was seen as the ideal candidate a year ago, predecessor Julian Nagelsmann had to go head over heels. It can now be said that the Bayern bosses gambled badly with this poker game. Nagelsmann’s record is superior to that of his successor.”
