Why Bayern Munich sacked Julian Nagelsmann out of nowhere

Why Bayern Munich sacked Julian Nagelsmann out of nowhere

This narrative simply keeps getting crazier and stranger. Bild has published an explanation for why Bayern Munich abruptly fired Julian Nagelsmann.

Apparently, the decision surprised the (now-former) coach just as much as it did the rest of us. He was still on vacation, skiing in Austria, when he received the news

According to the article, the executives decided that the coach was to blame for the 10 points dropped in 2023, putting the season’s goals in jeopardy. They thought that the international break would be the ideal time to change coaches, and they chose to bring in Thomas Tuchel as quickly as possible. Tuchel will manage Bayern’s preparations for the match against Borussia Dortmund beginning on Monday.

The decision to move quickly was driven by market conditions; Bayern expected Tuchel to be removed from the pool of potential replacements soon. Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur were both interested in the former Chelsea coach, and the club did not want to be left out. They’ve had their eye on him for several years, since since he took over as manager of Borussia Dortmund.

Julian Nagelsmann’s career at Bayern Munich has come to an abrupt and unexpected conclusion, which no one could have predicted only a few hours ago. Just a few days ago, Club President Herbert Hainer publicly backed him to win the Champions League against Manchester City. So it appears that the Bayern board of directors made a split-second decision to shift course.
