Thomas Tuchel is looking forward to his debut game as FC Bayern Munich coach against his former club and Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund.
"We are very aware of the importance. It will be a hot match," said Julian Nagelsmann's successor before the top game second against first on Saturday (6.30 p.m. / Sky). "The game will have a signal effect," said Tuchel about the title fight with BVB.
On Friday, the 49-year-old was able to train with the full squad for the first time after being away from international duty; with the exception of the long-term absences Manuel Neuer and Lucas Hernández as well as the striker Mathys Tel.
"The good news is that everyone is up for it. Everyone wants to show themselves. We have plenty to draw from. And we want to win," said Tuchel. The recently injured national player Jamal Musiala was also able to complete the secret session on Friday, as the new Bayern coach reported.
"It was a turbulent week for everyone," said Tuchel. He said nothing about formation and tactics. There could be "an unfair line-up" because after such a short time with the team he "has few arguments to leave someone out". BVB travel to Munich with a one-point lead, where they have lost the last eight league games.
