At his last home game as Bayern coach, Thomas Tuchel was surprisingly not officially farewelled by the record champions before the game against VfL Wolfsburg.

Martin Volkmar reports from FC Bayern Munich

Despite his last home game, Thomas Tuchel was not officially farewelled at FC Bayern Munich.

The reason is that the season will only end after the last game next Saturday in Hoffenheim, explained stadium spokesman Stephan Lehmann before the game against VfL Wolfsburg (2-0) kicked off.

They want to initially concentrate on securing second place in the table and then say goodbye to the coaching team, which also includes assistants Zsolt Löw and Arno Michels.

“That was definitely in my spirit too. I’m not a big fan of these things. That’s why we agreed that the season isn’t over yet,” confirmed Tuchel after the final whistle ran-Microphone.

FC Bayern: This is how Eberl justifies the waiver

This is also how Max Eberl justified the unexpected waiver of a bouquet of flowers and warm words for the head coach, who was leaving at the end of the season.

“It just wouldn’t have felt right to say goodbye to someone who can still achieve the supposed minimum goal of second place with us,” said the sports director.

“That’s why we both decided not to do it today, but will do it at the appropriate time.”

FC Bayern: Eberl confirms farewell to Tuchel

However, Eber denied emerging speculation that Tuchel might be able to continue at Bayern because the search for a successor is stalling.

“The agreement to separate was already in place when I came here and they both confirmed that,” he said:

“It’s rather unusual for Bayern Munich to say goodbye to a coach – except, like Jupp Heynckes, with the championship trophy in his hand. Everything was done then and for us, everything isn’t done yet.”

Manuel Neuer
The captain is celebrating his 500th Bundesliga appearance, something only three other keepers have achieved in Bundesliga history. Have a relaxing anniversary and have to keep fit with warm-up exercises. Only has to intervene once when Wimmer shoots from distance (22nd). After 73 minutes, make way for substitute Peretz. ran-Note: 3© IMAGO/Ulrich Wagner

Joshua Kimmich
The national player is not nearly as challenged defensively as he was against Real Madrid and can therefore always move forward. There, however, with few good actions. A free kick from a good position goes over the goal (62′). ran-Note: 3© kolbert-press

Dayot Upamecano
The Frenchman, recently only number four central defender, can start again because de Ligt and Dier are spared. Has no problems at all with the harmless guests. ran-Note: 3© Jan Huebner

Minjae Kim
The South Korean also gets a start and, like his neighbor Upamecano, is hardly required at all. In the second half, the Wolfsburg team went a little harder, which didn’t result in a goal threat, but after Wind got in hard, it led to Kim being substituted due to an injury. ran-Note: 3© IMAGO/Eibner

Alphonso Davies
The Canadian initially uses the space to create a stir with Zaragoza on the left. Prepares the 1-0 through Zvonarek, but is no longer as effective afterwards. ran-Note: 3© Revierfoto

Aleksandar Pavlovic
There is no sign of tiredness from the youngster after the grueling performance against Real. As usual, he is confident on the ball and has a lot of good passes, but is mainly limited to defending at the back. ran-Note: 3© Jan Huebner

Leon Goretzka
The former international also returns to the starting line-up and thanks him with his sixth goal of the season from 15 meters to make it 2-0 (13th). Decent performance, makes way for Laimer after 73 minutes. ran-Note: 3© 2024 Getty Images

Lovro Zvonarek
The Croatian is making his starting eleven debut after three short appearances due to the many failures in the offensive line. The 19-year-old justified his appointment after just four minutes with his first professional goal to make it 1-0. He is the eighth youngest goalscorer in Bayern’s history. But if you don’t get any more shots after that, you leave the field after 90 minutes to applause. ran-Note: 2© 2024 Getty Images

Thomas Müller
From the kick-off, the veteran ensures order and safety for the inexperienced players around him. He keeps moving from the center to the right side and from there sets up Goretzka to make it 2-0. Traveling a lot, committed performance despite the circumstances and Bayern’s best. ran-Note: 2© 2024 Getty Images

Bryan Zaragoza
The Spaniard also makes his first appearance in the starting eleven. Busy and always playable on the left wing, but often gets stuck or his crosses find no takers. It was also bad luck that his goal to make it 3-0 (18th) was withdrawn after a VAR check due to Müller being offside. Goes out after 73 minutes. ran-Note: 3© 2024 Getty Images

Mathys Tel
The Frenchman is the only leader with no alternative due to the failures of Kane and Choupo-Moting. But if it hangs in the air for a long time, you can always fall back. Only one chance after 70 minutes when he shoots past the left. ran-Note: 4© kolbert-press

Daniel Peretz
Tuchel rewarded the Israeli for his silent role as number three in goal after 73 minutes and gave him his Bundesliga debut after he had only played one competitive game in the first round of the cup against Münster. Peretz has no problems because he is no longer under serious scrutiny. ran-Note: 3© 2023 Getty Images

Matteo Perez Vinlöf
The 18-year-old Swede also makes his professional debut after 73 minutes, replacing Zaragoza. The junior international came to Bayern at the age of 16 and played 25 games for the second team in the Bavarian Regional League this season. Moves to his regular position on the left in the back four, Davies moves forward. ran-Note: 3© IMAGO/foto2press

Matthijs de Ligt
The Dutchman, who was recently a bit ailing, had to intervene after 74 minutes because Kim had to go down with an injury. Without any problems, even if Wolfsburg played a little more committedly in the end. ran-Note: 3© 2024 Getty Images

Konrad Laimer
The Austrian comes on for Goertzka after 73 minutes and replaces him in the midfield at 1-1. Helps bring victory over time. ran-Note: 3© 2024 Getty Images

Jonathan Asp-Jensen
The 18-year-old Dane also makes his professional debut when he replaces Zvonarek after 90 minutes. Came from FC Midjylland two years ago and has played twelve times for the second team this season. ran-Grade: without rating© IMAGO/Michael Weber

FC Bayern: Tuchel doesn’t celebrate with fans either

Tuchel, whose last game as Bayern coach will take place next Saturday in Hoffenheim, also refrained from celebrating with the players in front of the fans after the win over Wolfsburg:

“It’s a moment for the team. The fans don’t come to the stadium because of the coach, but because of the team. I don’t like being the center of attention, I don’t need to be with the fans.”

He had already rejected adoption at the press conference on Saturday. “You don’t need to hand over flowers to terminate your contract early without a title,” Tuchel explained:

“Of course I’m not satisfied personally. I signed a contract with Bayern Munich to win titles.”

The contract, which actually runs until 2025, will be terminated early on June 30th after the first titleless season in twelve years, but the new coach has still not been determined.

Appreciation for the outgoing Sarr and Choupo-Moting

There should also be a restructuring in the squad, but on Sunday only the two players whose contracts were expiring were said goodbye: Bouna Sarr and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

While the injured Sarr was personally present, Choupo-Moting was not at the Allianz Arena due to a bad cold.

In addition, CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen and President Herbert Hainer paid tribute to outgoing Marketing Director Andreas Jung, who is leaving Bavaria after 27 years.
