Why Bayern Munich signed former Chelsea manager
German side Bayern Munich in a recent statement has explained why they sacked Julian Nagelsmann as manager and brought in former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel as his replacement.
According to Bayern’s CEO Oliver Kahn, the Bundesliga champions needed to go in a different direction and had to let the 35-year-old go.
Kahn in a statement on Friday pointed to the fact that Bayern have played less attractive football since football resumed following the World Cup in Qatar.
“But now we have concluded that the quality in our squad – despite the Bundesliga title last year – has come to the fore less and less often.
“After the World Cup we have played less successfully and less attractively,” Kahn said.
Nagelsmann spent less than two years at Bayern, having joined them in the summer of 2021 from Red Bull Leipzig.
Before his sack, he won the Bundesliga title after his first season and successive German Super Cups in 2021 and 2022.
