Munich Tuchel’s replacement

February 23, 2024 | by

Germany’s prestigious Bayern Munich, where Kim Min-jae (28) plays, has decided to break up with Thomas Tuchel (51, Germany) this summer.

The Munich club announced on its official website on the 22nd (Korea time) that it has mutually agreed to terminate the contract with Tuchel on June 30 this year. Tuchel was originally signed until June 30 next year, but he moved it up by a year. The reason is poor performance. Tuchel, who took the helm during the season in March last year, won the Bundesliga title for Munich in the 2022-2023 season, but is still in second place (point 50), eight points behind Leverkusen (58 points, 18 wins, 2 draws, 4 draws) in this season’s Bundesliga. He is on the verge of being eliminated after losing 0-1 to Lazio (Italy) in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 on the 15th. 토토사이트

“Through public discussion, we have decided to join the new coach for the upcoming 2024-2025 season. Club members for the rest of the season should strive to perform as well as possible in the Bundesliga and UCL,” Munich CEO Jan Cristian Driessen said.

Tuchel is a leader who made remarkable achievements at the Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in England. He took the helm of PSG in the 2019-2020 season, won the French League 1 and the Cupede France (FA Cup), and was the runner-up in the UCL, and became the head coach of Chelsea in the 2020-2021 season. However, he became a “limited manager” in his second season in Munich, leaving a dent in his leadership career.

Kim Min-jae, whom Tuchel recruited ahead of this season, is struggling to lead the team’s defense, so even if a new coach comes, it will not have much impact on his position. “I will do my best for Munich’s success until I leave the team,” Tuchel said.
