Thomas Tuchel to leave Bayern Munich at end of season

Thomas Tuchel will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season, after talks with the club’s board.

Tuchel’s position has come under threat following three consecutive defeats in all competitions that have left the German champions eight points behind Bayer Leverkusen in the title race and facing an uphill task to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

 

Bayern’s 11-year grip on the Bundesliga is in danger of ending and Sky Germany have confirmed a decision has been made for Tuchel to leave the club. However, the former Chelsea boss will remain in charge of the Bavarians until the end of the campaign, as Bayern assess candidates.

Xabi Alonso and Jurgen Klopp have been named as the early frontrunners for the role, with the former having masterminded Leverkusen’s push for a maiden Bundesliga title this season.

The Spaniard’s side are unbeaten across all competitions this season and Liverpool are also targeting the 42-year-old, following the announcement that Jurgen Klopp will step down at Anfield.

Klopp’s impending availability will also alert Bayern, though the German has said he is keen to take a break from the game when leaving Liverpool in the summer. However, the opportunity to take charge of Germany’s most successful club could prove difficult to turn down.

 

This week, Bayern were also linked with former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and ex-Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
