Leon Goretzka had paid tribute to sacked Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann after Bayern Munich sacked the manager and got him replaced by former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.
The German midfielder took to his Instagram account to share a post-match congratulatory hug with an emotional caption beneath it, stating how fun it is to work with the manager.
Also, working with Nagelsmann was characterized by fun, trust, and mutual respect, according to him.
He is one of the best coaches Goretzka has worked with, and he wish him all the best going forward in his career.
Goretzka wants the other players to bring Nagelsmann’s job to a conclusion at Bayern Munich.
Why Bayern Munich sacked Nagelsmann?
Bayern Munich football executive Oliver Kahn has given the reason why Nagelsmann was sacked even though he won eight matches in the Champions League.
Also, the club was playing well enough in other competitions under the sacked Nagelsmann.
Kahn claimed the sack came because of Bayern Munich’s inconsistency under Nagelsmann.
The club reacted due to strong fluctuations in the squad, and they see it continuing beyond next season.
Another reason why the manager got sacked was because the club was playing less attractive football, which didn’t make the Bayern Munich hierarchy happy with the manager’s tactics.
The German giant lost faith in the manager around 11 p.m. on March 19, 2023, after Bayern Munich lost to Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.
Cancelo Wants To Win The Champions League With Bayern Munich’s New Manager Thomas Tuchel
Joao Cancelo welcomes the former Blues manager to Bayern while also admitting that the former Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel thwarted his hope of winning the Champions League with Manchester City.
Cancelo was referring to Chelsea’s 1-0 triumph against Manchester City in the 2021 UEFA Champions League final, when Kai Havertz’s goal helped the Blues to win the title.
When Cancelo, who joined Bayern Munich on loan from Manchester City in January, was asked about Thomas Tuchel’s imminent appointment, he responded with a witty reference to Tuchel’s victory against Guardiola’s City in the 2021 Champions League final.
He said, “As for Tuchel, he made me lose a Champions League final, so I hope he will win it for me this year!”
Meanwhile, the fascinating thing about Cancelo’s comment is that Bayern Munich will face Manchester City in the quarter-finals of this season’s Champions League competition.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has a poor record against Thomas Tuchel, who will be looking forward to winning another European Cup with his new club like he did with Chelsea.
What’s your take on Thomas Tuchel’s appointment as Bayern Munich boss?
Do you think he can repeat what he did with Chelsea in 2021 and help Bayern win the Champions League?
