Thomas Tuchel will leave FC Bayern at the end of the season. The club announced this in a statement in which the coach was quoted with a succinct sentence. Now it will be more detailed. Tuchel comments on the reasons and circumstances.

Thomas Tuchel and FC Bayern will face RB Leipzig in the top game of the Bundesliga on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. It will be the first game since Wednesday’s announcement that the club and coach would part ways at the end of the season. At latest. Because of course it is possible in this constellation that it ends earlier. A defeat against RB could fuel such a development.

What does Tuchel think about the failed engagement? Where does he see the reasons? There was nothing about this in the club’s announcement. Tuchel was only quoted with a succinct sentence: “We have agreed that we will end our cooperation after this season. Until then, I and my coaching team will of course continue to do everything we can to ensure maximum success.”

He never had the feeling that he couldn’t reach the team or that there was a problem with the team: “We have a stark discrepancy between training and games, and in the end the coach is responsible. I’m disappointed in myself and how we’re playing at the moment. I’m not disappointed with players. We have high standards and they will not change. We have good players and we try to get the most out of them.”

When asked about the differences of opinion with leading player Joshua Kimmich, Tuchel evaded the question. He said: “Joshua is an extremely important player, a leader. I think he hasn’t been able to reach his top form in the last few games. We fight for common goals, that won’t change.”
