After great games at the start of the season, FC Bayern suddenly has a spanner in the works. Julian Nagelsmann still enjoys the full trust of those responsible - but Thomas Tuchel would be there in the background if the worst came to the worst.
After only three points from the last four league games, the mood at Bayern has become rougher. The reports of dissatisfied players are increasing, according to Sport-Bild information in the dressing room, Julian Nagelsmann's lack of self-criticism is being criticized.
Of course, there is not yet a coaching discussion on Säbener Straße. After the 1-0 defeat against Augsburg, everyone responsible - Hasan Salihamidzic, Oliver Kahn and Herbert Hainer - backed Julian Nagelsmann and emphasized that they were still "totally convinced" of him. The 35-year-old can be sure of the trust of his superiors.
If the worst comes to the worst, this process could also be accelerated by Thomas Tuchel. The 49-year-old has already been courted by the record champions in the past and is on the market after leaving Chelsea. An option that doesn't come along every day.
In addition: According to Sport Bild, Tuchel does not want to take a break after being kicked out in London, instead he is "already dying for the next task". There is said to have been no contact with FC Bayern, but according to the report, the post with the record champions would appeal to the ex-Dortmunder - Tuchel would therefore even be willing to accept losses compared to his Premier League salary.
The Bayern bosses still want to keep the Tuchel issue away. Not just because you have confidence in Nagelsmann. But also in order not to provide the team with a possible alibi.
