Thomas Tuchel got into an angry rant at his Bayern Munich players after their disappointing performance and defeat to Lazio in the Champions League knockout stages on Wednesday, February 14.

The defeat is among a series of poor performances by Bayern this season both in the Bundesliga and Europe, as pressure piles on Tuchel to work out a solution fast.

What happened that night?

Bayern Munich tasted defeat by a lone goal at the hands of Italian side Lazio, after Ciro Immobile netted a penalty for the hosts, following a red card to Bayern defender Dayot Upamecano in the second half of the game.

The German champions massively under-performed in Italy, coming away from the defeat with an ugly stat of not having a shot on target for the first time in five years in a game (literally any game!).

What did Tuchel say to Bayern Munich players after Lazio defeat?

According to Sky journalist Riccardo Basile who leaked what was said in the Bayern dressing room, Thomas Tuchel angrily descended on his players following the Lazio defeat.

The 50-year-old head coach allegedly told his players after full-time:

“You’re not as good as I thought, then I just have to adapt to your level.”

It is not too hard to understand Tuchel’s frustration after a Champions League game which saw Bayern play like they were clueless both in attack and defence.

However, among the stars who played for Bayern on the night were World Cup winners like Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller, and then prolific attackers such as Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, and Harry Kane.
