‘Reversal of fortune!”, Kim laughs–Tuchel breaks off talks with Munich

The drama surrounding Bayern Munich (Germany) continues to take twists and turns. Thomas Tuchel, who just a day earlier seemed to be on the verge of staying at the club, has decided to step down as Munich coach at the end of the season without any further extension.

“Tuchel has been in talks with Munich over the possibility of staying at the club, but has decided to part ways this summer,” the BBC reported on Sunday.

“This is my last press conference at the ‘Sabener Strasse’ (Munich’s training center),” Tuchel said at an official press conference ahead of the club’s final match of the 34th round of the 2023-2024 German Bundesliga against Hoffenheim on Sunday. “The agreement I reached with the club in February is still valid. We spoke with the club again recently, but ultimately failed to reach an agreement.” Tuchel will leave the club for the final time on Sept. 19 against Hoffenheim.

Tuchel, who took over at Munich from Chelsea (England) in March last year, has been in charge of the club for 14 months ahead of the final game and has compiled a record of 37 wins, 8 draws and 15 losses (61.67% win percentage). However, Munich opted to part ways with Tuchel in February, with one year remaining on his contract, following a poor run of results this season.

Munich initially targeted Xabi Alonso, who led Leverkusen to the Bundesliga title this season, as their next manager, but their efforts were ultimately unsuccessful. Since then, the club has tried to recruit Julian Nagelsmann, the German national soccer team coach, and Ralf Langnick, the Austrian national soccer team coach, but all of them have failed.

After struggling to find their next coach, Munich finally seemed to be getting closer to securing Tuchel’s services as they began to work on their remaining options. Add to that the fact that key Munich players such as Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller had expressed their support for Tuchel, and it looked like the job was secure. However, Tuchel announced his departure from Munich in a press conference that day.

Tuchel’s departure has opened up a new opportunity for Kim Min-jae, who has been struggling with his lack of recognition in recent years.

After leading Napoli to the Serie A title last season, Kim moved to Munich after the season. The relationship between the two was so strong that Tuchel himself made a phone call to recruit him. With Tuchel’s full support, Kim quickly established himself as the first-choice center back at Munich. Even when Matthijs de Ligt and Dayo Upamecano were both injured in the middle of the season, Kim worked so hard that he was called a “workhorse” for holding his own.

However, Dyer, who joined the team in the winter transfer window while the team was away for the Asian Cup in January and February, started to perform well, and when Kim Min-jae’s form dipped after returning from the Asian Cup, Dyer took over the starting role.

In the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal against Real Madrid, Kim was a surprise starter and had a poor performance, playing a part in 바카라사이트 both goals. After the game, Tuchel directly criticized Kim, saying, “His play today was greedy.” He went on to say, “He was greedy. “At this point, Dyer and Der Licht are ahead of Kim Min-jae and Upamecano in the competition,” he said ahead of the second leg of the quarterfinals.

Tuchel’s comments were notable for his praise for Kim Min-jae, who started the 2-0 Bundesliga Round 33 victory over Wolfsburg on March 13, saying, “We are lucky to have him.” He was substituted midway through the second half due to injury, but his steady defensive play helped to keep a clean sheet and win Tuchel’s heart back.

However, there is still competition for the position, with Munich linked with big-name defenders such as Ronaldo Araujo (Barcelona) and Jonathan Tah (Leverkusen) in the summer transfer window. There’s also no guarantee that Tuchel will give Kim his full support. While the future is still uncertain, it’s clear that Tuchel’s departure is a good thing for Kim Min-Jae.
