Thomas Tuchel has been appointed the new Bayern Munich coach after the sacking of Julian Nagelsmann.
According to the media statement released by The Bavarian, “Tuchel will receive a contract until 30th June 2025”, and will supervise squad training for the first time on Monday.
Club CEO Oliver Kahn said: “When we signed Julian Nagelsmann for FC Bayern in the summer of 2021, we were convinced we would work with him on a long-term basis – and that was the goal of all of us right up to the end.
“Julian shares our aspiration to play successful and attractive football. But now we have come to the conclusion that the quality in our squad – despite the Bundesliga title last year – has come to the fore less and less often.
“After the World Cup we have played less successfully and less attractively. The big fluctuations in performance have cast doubt on our goals for this season, but also our goals for the future. That is why we have acted now.
“Personally and on behalf of FC Bayern, I would like to thank Julian and his coaching team, and wish everyone the best of luck for the future.”
Thomas Tuchel, 49, is former Chelsea coach having won the Champions League with Chelsea in May 2021, followed by the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup, and was voted World Coach of the Year in 2021.
