Bayern Munich: Hamann on Tuchel: Makes a "confused impression"

In the opinion of ex-national player Dietmar Hamann, coach Thomas Tuchel is partly to blame for Bayern's sporting crisis.

"The leadership may be confused, but the coach has also made a very confused impression in his four weeks so far," said the former Bayern professional on Sky90. "If he also gambles away the championship, it is clear that he will be shot." After the 3-1 draw at Mainz 05, Munich lost their lead in the Bundesliga to Borussia Dortmund.

"I've rarely experienced a change of coach where things get worse in the short term. That's exactly what happened at Bayern," said Hamann. Against Mainz, the team played "as if from all good spirits", in the cup defeat in the quarter-finals against SC Freiburg the performance of the team was like a "pile of chickens". Hamann also criticized Tuchel's public statements and the line-ups. "You have no competition other than the Bundesliga. You have two players who are in form: Coman and Sané. And they don't play." Bayern lost to Manchester City in the Champions League.

Fink sees problems more with the team

Former Bayern professional Thorsten Fink does not see the problems in Munich with the new coach Tuchel, who followed Julian Nagelsmann a month ago. "Something has to be wrong and it has to be within the team," said the 55-year-old. "I am convinced that Thomas Tuchel is using the right levers."

Hamann also sees the atmosphere in the team as a problem. "There are quarreling groups, but no team," said the 49-year-old, who sees "deep rifts" in the record champions' squad. "The team is falling apart at the moment." He would have liked the clear criticism from CEO Oliver Kahn after the 1: 3 in Mainz "six to eight weeks ago. You have stood protectively in front of the team for too long".

In the Bundesliga title fight, Hamann believes Dortmund are capable of the first championship since 2012. "Now it's in their hands and they shouldn't give up the lead," he said. "I can well imagine them winning the last five games. Fink, on the other hand, has doubts about BVB, who are currently one point ahead, and believes in the eleventh title in a row for Munich. "I'm sure that Bayern will win all will win five games. Dortmund have something to lose now," he said.
