Tuchel “frustrated and angry” after defeat against Lazio

Coach Thomas Tuchel is “frustrated and angry” after the setback in the Champions League. Bayern leave again as losers after the 0-1 defeat against Lazio Rome. The reactions are accordingly.

After the defeat at Lazio Rome, Thomas Tuchel is coming under increasing pressure at FC Bayern. Lothar Matthäus sharply criticizes the performance in Italy. The record national player also comments on the first personnel rumors.

Lothar Matthäus is harshly critical of FC Bayern after their poor performance at Lazio Rome in the Champions League. The Munich team lost the first leg of the round of 16 0-1 and are already in danger of being eliminated in the first knockout round against the eighth team in the Italian league. The crisis at the record champions is getting worse, just like the debates about coach Thomas Tuchel.

Matthew does not put out the flames. On the contrary. The 62-year-old told BILD: “It always surprises me how you can sugarcoat games like this. We’re talking about FC Bayern, world-class players. I follow Italian football. Lazio is nothing more than mediocre.”

Especially offensively, the Munich team achieved little in Italy; they didn’t manage a single direct shot on goal. This means they remain without a goal for the second time after losing the groundbreaking Bundesliga top game 3-0 at Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. Matthäus says about the problems of his former club: “The psychology is not right. Not just in the game against Lazio. The players don’t have a clear head. Maybe they become overloaded with ideas. The players are used to pressure to succeed.”

What leads the record national player to coach: “The team has no self-confidence, no conviction. The coaching team – especially Thomas Tuchel – is responsible not only for the physical but also for the psychological situation in a team. You have to reach the heads. The question is: can he capture the players?”

Tricky away game on Sunday for FC Bayern

Tuchel suffered his tenth defeat in his 43rd competitive game in Rome. Predecessor Julian Nagelsmann also lost ten times, but in a total of 84 games. There won’t be a quick dismissal like Nagelsmann did almost a year ago at Tuchel, the coach will remain in office for the time being and will look after Bayern in the tricky away game against the strong home team VfL Bochum on Sunday.

And yet there are already initial thoughts about a Plan B, and rumors are making the rounds about a possible return of Hans-Dieter Flick. SPORT BILD reports on it. Flick won the Champions League with Bayern, then left voluntarily in 2021 and soon afterwards became national coach. Unsuccessful national coach. The preliminary round exit at the World Cup in Qatar and the resulting Amazon documentary did not help his reputation.

Matthäus says about the personnel: “Hansi Flick is always a name at Bayern, we know his success story, he is free at the moment. I’m not saying he’s a better coach. But Hansi has something that Tuchel perhaps doesn’t have. In any case, he always managed to strengthen his players and instill great self-confidence in them.”
