Julian Nagelsmann Favorite To Replace Thomas Tuchel At Bayern Munich


    Julian Nagelsmann appears to be the man Bayern Munich are keen on appointing, as a replacement for Thomas Tuchel, who will leave the club at the end of the season. 

    Nagelsmann has been tipped to be the right man for the job and Bayern seems to be closing in on the deal. 

    Julian Nagelsmann is the current coach of the German National team, and he is also open to the idea of returning to Bayern.

    He became the leading candidate for the role after Xabi Alonso decided to stay at Bayer Leverkusen, with Nagelsmann also wanting his future to be sorted out this month.

    The 36-year-old was sacked by Bayern under their previous administration, it was rumored that he had lost control of the dressing room and the results then weren’t satisfactory, with the best decision at the time being to part ways with him.

    However, the decision to hire Thomas Tuchel wasn’t a good decision either. For the first time in 12 years, Bayern Munchen will be ending the season trophyless.

    The Bavarian Giants lost the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen after Xabi Alonso’s side’s 5-0 win against Werder Bremen on Sunday, April 14, 2024.

    Bayern Munich broke records, but they were primarily poor or distasteful records, as opposed to thrilling records.

    Tuchel and Nagelsmann stats at Bayern Munich

    Thomas Tuchel and Bayern Munchen’s marriage was far from what should be called “a match made in Heaven”, as it wasn’t compatible.

    Tuchel has overseen 53 matches as Bayern boss, winning 33 wins, 7 draws, and 13 losses.

    The German Bundesliga heavyweight have also scored 126 goals and conceded 67 so far.

    Julian Nagglesman’s stint at Bayern Munich was pretty much more successful than Tuchel’s, as he won 60 matches out of 84, with 14 draws and 10 losses, scoring 255 goals and conceding 84.

    Nagglesman had a winning percentage of 71.4% compared to Tuchel’s 62.2%.

    The 36-year-old manager won the Bundesliga title together with two DFL supercups, and he was en route to winning his second Bundesliga title before he was given his marching orders by the Allianz Arena side. 

    Tuchel came in March 2023 and won the Bundesliga title, and this could be his only title at the helm of the club, except he wins the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League title.

    Bayern Munich are expected to come up with a strong response next season, and they have already started working on the squad-building process. 

    In a bid to topple Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich are set to launch a £200 million transfer plan in the summer, and they will be looking to strengthen all positions, from attack to midfield to defense.

    The German giants have shown interest in players like Stuttgart’s Christian Fulrich, Fulham’s Joao Palhinha, and Real Sociedad’s Martin Zubimendi just to mention a few. 

    In conclusion, Bayern Munich have a quarter-final clash against Arsenal on Wednesday, April 17, after playing out a 2-2 draw in the first leg, played on April 9, 2024.

    Anyway, Thomas Tuchel’s side currently sit 2nd in the German Bundesliga, with 63 points after 29 matches.
