Bayern Munich Director Max Eberl Confirm Decision On Thomas Tuchel After Resumption of Talks


Bayern Munich sporting director Max Eberl has countered the club’s soon-to-leave manager Thomas Tuchel over their contract renewal deadlock.

Tuchel, who was set to leave at the end of the season, was recalled back to the negotiation table by the Bavarians for a possible new proposal.

It is understood Bayern Munich turned to Tuchel after failed attempts to find a replacement for the embattled manager.

The club’s former manager Julian Nagelsmann made the shortlisted candidates to take over from Tuchel. BILD reported the club had entered talks with Nagelsmann for a possible return but suffered setback as the 39-year-old chose to renew his contract with Germany national team.

Former Manchester United caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick was also contacted for the role but the latter issued a statement turning down the offer to continue as Austria national team manager

Bundesliga-winning Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso was also primed for the role but turned down the offer to continue as Bayer Leverkusen manager.

A lack of breakthrough with the Bavarians’ spotlighted replacement options forced the club back to the negotiation table with Tuchel as they were running out of time to find a new hand for the role.

Tuchel confirmed the resumption of talks with Bayern Munich but added he has not reached an agreement with the club.

Now, Bayern Munich director Max Eberl has set the record straight, confirming the club will part ways with Tuchel as they could not reach an agreement.

In a quote shared by Fabrizio Romano, Eberl said;

“We talked a lot together with Tuchel. The discussions were open and very transparent.

“But a decision was made and the topic is now over”.

“It wasn’t just one point. We talked about the entire topic and it is very complex”, told SkyDE.

As things stand, Thomas Tuchel is expected to leave the club at the end of the season as planned. He has been linked to a move to the Premier League with Chelsea and Manchester United touted as his possible next stop.
