(dpa) FC Bayern Munich and coach Thomas Tuchel will go their separate ways at the end of the season. The early separation was decided in the past few days after a conversation between CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen and the coach, as FC Bayern announced in a media release on Wednesday morning. This was preceded by three defeats in a row for Bayern. So far, nothing has been known about a possible successor from summer onwards.

The club is striving for a realignment

Dreesen is quoted in the communiqué as follows: “In an open, good conversation we came to the decision to mutually end our collaboration in the summer. Our goal is to carry out a sporting realignment with a new coach for the 2024/25 season. Until then, every single person in the club is expressly challenged to achieve the maximum possible in the Champions League and the Bundesliga.”

Tuchel succeeded Julian Nagelsmann in March 2023 and signed a contract until June 30, 2025. In the 2022/23 season, the Munich team under Tuchel were eliminated in the DFB Cup against SC Freiburg and in the Champions League against eventual winners Manchester City, but in the end they at least celebrated the German championship in an exciting finish ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

No title this season?

The current season threatens to be the first without a title since the 2011/12 season. In the DFB Cup, the Munich team was eliminated by third division team 1. FC Saarbrücken. In the round of 16 of the Champions League, FC Bayern have to make up for a 0-1 defeat in the first leg at Lazio Rome in order to reach the quarter-finals on March 5th. In the fight for the championship, Bayer Leverkusen is far ahead of Munich. In the direct duel, coach Xabi Alonso’s team achieved a clear 3-0 victory in mid-February. Alonso played for FC Bayern from 2014 to 2017 and is an interesting coaching candidate for several top clubs.

The 50-year-old Tuchel has suffered many injuries in his star ensemble this season. On the other hand, the still top-class team disappointed too often. The tactical and personnel changes in the past games were unsuccessful. There was a lot of professional praise for Tuchel, but there were also disagreements with one or two stars. Tuchel repeatedly pointed out the discrepancy between performances in games and in training.

Tuchel continues to try to bring the season to a successful end after repeated setbacks. The Bayern bosses absolutely want to avoid a separation in the middle of the season like with Nagelsmann. CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen has ruled out an early separation after the 2:3 against Bochum.
