Crisis at Bayern: Calls for Change with Thomas Tuchel – Who Could Step In?

Almost all experts agree – things cannot continue like this with Thomas Tuchel (50)!

After the 2-3 debacle in Heidenheim and before the important quarter-final first leg in the Champions League at Arsenal (Tuesday, 9 p.m., Prime Video or here in the BILD live ticker), there are always calls for the Bayern coach to leave immediately volume up.

After European champion Thomas Strunz (55), Thomas Helmer (58) has now also fired up the idea of ​​Lothar Matthäus (63) as a firefighter for the record champions.

The 1996 European champion in BR: “I find this idea very charming. I think very highly of Lothar. He never got the chance to show it in Germany. He would give everything for FC Bayern, I’m sure of that.”

The problem: Matthäus himself is definitely ruling out the Bayern job!

For the 1990 world champion, the coaching issue is over (with the exception of his work as TSV Grünwald’s e-youth coach). He no longer wants to sit on the bench of a professional team – even in the short term – and feels very comfortable as a critic on the other side.

Most recently, Matthäus (who trained Rapid Vienna as well as the Hungarian and Bulgarian national teams, among others) told the dpa: “I’m a lot busy, I’m on the road a lot. My calendar is full, I’m so happy with my life because I can decide a little bit about it myself.”

In addition to his life plan, which is completely contrary to his coaching job, there are also his professional and contractual obligations as a TV expert at Sky (including all top games in the Bundesliga), RTL expert for the European Championships and as an advertising partner (including Interwetten).

In addition, Matthäus lives from his clear and clear opinion as a TV expert and critic, which he would of course no longer be able to express in this form as Bayern coach.

Another point: According to BILD information, Bayern don’t actually want to bring in a big name in the last few weeks because new problems could arise – and they still don’t see anyone internally who would be an ideal fit.

The record champions are currently not thinking about a change of coach – also due to a lack of alternatives – and want to go through the season with Tuchel.

Sports director Max Eberl (50) on Saturday: “We have to make sure we reach the Champions League. But it is completely clear to me that he will be on the bench next Tuesday and will be on the bench against Cologne on Saturday.”

Matthäus, who was brought into play as an immediate solution, had also recently spoken out in favor of a change of coach: “Tuchel can no longer reach the team. There are strange statements and strange criticism from him. The team needs new impetus and Thomas Tuchel can’t give that.”

And he brings a name into the game himself: Hermann Gerland (69)!

Matthäus on ‘Sky90 – the football debate’: “I could imagine Hermann Gerland, who is popular everywhere at Bayern and is a big name not only among the players, but also in the surrounding area. It’s supposed to bring the team together as a unit. They can play football. If all eleven play what they can as a team, then they will be one of the favorites to win the Champions League.”

Gerland was assistant coach at Bayern several times (most recently until summer 2021) (including under Pep Guardiola, Jupp Heynckes and Louis van Gaal) and was on the sidelines as head coach at Bayern II. He is currently assistant coach of the German U21 under coach Antonio di Salvo (44).

But: The club icon is still often on Säbener Straße in Munich and is also very close to honorary president Uli Hoeneß (72). If Hoeneß were to call and ask him, a short-term job in Munich would be very conceivable…
