Catastrophic end of adventure for Thomas Tuchel

Everything started well, however, since after six minutes, the score was already 2-0 in favor of Bayern. Author of his seventh league goal of the season, Mathys Tel put his team into orbit by scoring (4th) before delivering an assist for Alphonso Davies (6th). But as too often this season, the legendary German club revived its opponent with individual errors and defensive generosity.

This time, it was Manuel Neuer, already at fault against Real Madrid in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League, who had a hole, offering two goals to Hoffenheim on two restart errors. A defensive excitement perfectly exploited by Andrej Kramaric, author of a hat-trick (68th, 85th, 87th) after Maximilian Beier reduced the gap (8th).

After agreeing to part ways at the end of the season at the start of the year, the ex-PSG coach and Bayern had become closer in recent weeks, with the club encountering difficulties in finding a successor. .

“We are sticking to the agreement reached in February. There have been further discussions in recent weeks, but we have not found an agreement to continue working together, and therefore we are sticking to the February agreement,” he declared to the media. Roberto De Zerbi, who has just announced his departure from Brighton, would hold the rope to sit on the Bayern bench next season.
