FC Bayern Munich is kicking out its previous coach Julian Nagelsmann. This is reported by the "Bild" newspaper and the usually well-informed Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano on Thursday evening. Corresponding information is also available to the "Kicker". According to the football magazine, the only thing missing for an official announcement is the signature of the desired successor Thomas Tuchel at the German record champions.
Former Mainz and Dortmund coach Tuchel was released from Chelsea at the start of the season after a Champions League defeat against Dinamo Zagreb.
Nagelsmann only took over the team at the beginning of the 2021/2022 season and became German champion right away. The contract of the 35-year-old actually ran until the end of June 2026.
In the current season, Bayern have gambled away their lead over Borussia Dortmund and have slipped to second place in the Bundesliga table. In the DFB Cup and in the Champions League, the team has reached the quarter-finals. Winning three titles is still possible - but now without Julian Nagelsmann on the bench.
More on this shortly at this point.
