Bundesliga: Hainer on Tuchel reaction: It’s good “that he’s defensive”

President Herbert Hainer considers Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel's reaction to the dispute with ex-national players Lothar Matthäus and Dietmar Hamann to be appropriate and understandable. "I think it's good that Thomas has now put up a stop sign. I like that he is so defensive," said Hainer at MagentaSport. "He has enough pressure like all of us at Bayern." After FC Bayern's 4-0 win in the top game of the Bundesliga at Borussia Dortmund, Tuchel reacted irritably to the previous criticism from experts Hamann and Matthäus.

"Everyone can express their opinion and criticize. Sometimes you had the impression that everything was in ruins and that we were playing against relegation," said Hainer. "We haven't lost a game yet and we've won every game in the Champions League. Yes, we were eliminated from the cup. Not good, but that can happen."

In an interview with the TV channel Sky, Tuchel had a verbal duel with Matthäus and presenter Sebastian Hellmann. Matthäus and Hamann had previously expressed criticism of Tuchel and the team after Munich's exit from the DFB Cup at third division team 1. FC Saarbrücken (1:2).
