Bayern Munich and manager Thomas Tuchel have reached a mutual agreement to leave the Bundesliga club at the end of the current season.

The 50-year-old German tactician is among the latest wave of managers across Europe leaving their respective clubs after a string of bad results on the pitch.

On Wednesday 21 February 2024, Bayern Munich announced via their official website that Tuchel will be departing the club at end of season following a mutual agreement between both parties.

The statement read in part:

“FC Bayern Munich and head coach Thomas Tuchel have jointly decided to end their working relationship, which was originally set to run until 30 June 2025, on 30 June 2024. This is the outcome of a constructive discussion between CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen and Thomas Tuchel.”

Thomas Tuchel confirms his departure

Tuchel has confirmed the agreement by the Bayern hierarchy and his camp, while stating that “we have agreed that we will end our collaboration after the end of this season”.

The 50-year-old also added that until the end of the season, he and his coaching team will continue to do everything they can to “ensure maximum success” for the club.

Tuchel recently got into an angry rant at Bayern players after UCL defeat

Days ago after the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 defeat to Lazio, the Bayern head coach had an annoyed outburst towards his Bayern Munich stars which included Harry Kane, Thomas Mueller, Joshua Kimmich and others.

A frustrated Thomas Tuchel was alleged to have told his players at full-time, that they are not as good as he initially thought of them, in a leaked conversation.

Bayern Munich’s form and consistency on the pitch has taken a massive hit in recent months, with poor results all adding up to Tuchel’s departure at the end of season.

Tuchel replaced Julian Nagelsmann as head coach of Bayern Munich in 2023. Prior to taking the top job at the current German champions, Thomas Tuchel coached Mainz 05, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea. He also coached French giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) to win back-to-back French league titles in 2019 and 2020.
