“Bayern” almost decided on a new coach, but the fans created a petition and demand to keep Tuchel


Although not long ago, all of Munich was unhap­py with Thomas.

Tuchel joined Bay­ern Munich in March 2023. In the posi­tion of coach, he replaced Julian Nagels­mann, who is cur­rent­ly the coach of the Ger­man nation­al team. In that sea­son, thanks to the loss of points to “Borus­sia” in the last round, Munich won their ulti­mate tro­phy.

This sea­son, Bay­ern failed to con­tin­ue its hege­mo­ny in Ger­many. Alon­so cre­at­ed such a pow­er­ful “Bay­er” that he sim­ply blew away all his com­peti­tors. The boss­es of the Munich club imme­di­ate­ly thought about chang­ing the coach, despite the fact that Tuchel con­tin­ues to fight for vic­to­ry in the Cham­pi­ons League.

Some of the fans were not against the release of Thomas, but there were those who were def­i­nite­ly not hap­py with this idea. Tuchel already has the expe­ri­ence of win­ning the Cham­pi­ons League at the head of Chelsea. A group of fans took the ini­tia­tive to keep the coach in the team. They pub­lished a peti­tion that has already col­lect­ed almost 10,000 sig­na­tures.

“Bay­ern” fans made such a state­ment on the Change por­tal. Opin­ions of com­menters under the post on Red­dit were divid­ed. A peti­tion called “We want Jup­pel (Tuchel), not (Ralph) Rang­nik!” was launched on Tues­day and con­tin­ues to gain pop­u­lar­i­ty.

Bay­ern Munich announced that Tuchel will leave the club at the end of the sea­son in Feb­ru­ary, fol­low­ing a “con­struc­tive dis­cus­sion between CEO Jan-Chris­t­ian Driesen and (Tuchel)”, accord­ing to club sources.

“Despite the neg­a­tive media cov­er­age sur­round­ing him and the per­son­nel sit­u­a­tion with an injured Munich team, Thomas led his team to the semi-finals of the Cham­pi­ons League,” the peti­tion reads.

“With all due respect to can­di­dates like Aston Vil­la coach Unai Emery or Rang­nick, those coach­es can­not line up in front of Jup­pel (Tuchel). Con­sid­er­ing that the Finale Dahoam (Cham­pi­ons League Final at the Allianz Are­na) will take place next sea­son, Bay­ern Munich should be hap­py to have such an out­stand­ing Cham­pi­ons League coach as TT (Tuchel),” the authors con­vinc­ing­ly state.

Thomas’ con­tract with the Munich club is valid until the sum­mer of 2025. If he can still win the Cham­pi­ons League with the club, then the man­age­ment should con­sid­er whether to give the Ger­man anoth­er chance.
