After Bayern Munich’s loss to Mainz on Saturday, Oliver Kahn targeted his players but not coach Thomas Tuchel.
It’s a very delicate week that the Bayern Munich. Eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Champions League by Manchester City on Wednesday, the Bavarians sank this Saturday in the league against Mainz. A defeat all the more serious as, in the process, Borussia Dortmund won and regained first place in the standings.
The sad record of Tuchel
Enough to weaken the position of Thomas Tuchel, who has won only 2 out of 7 matches since his arrival and who has greatly mortgaged the end of the season for the ten-time German champion. However, the German coach was not the target of criticism from Oliver Kahn, chairman of the board, who let loose on the players after the meeting. “We played a disastrous second half. Who is the team that wanted to be German champions? It will be very difficult to be crowned champion with such performances.”he launched in the mixed zone.
But for former Bayern goalkeeper Thomas Tuchel isn’t the one to blame, it’s the players. “Thomas Tuchel is the last person we need to talk about now. He does everything he can to help the boys progress. There are 11 men on the pitch who have to work hard to achieve the club’s goals. What the team showed on the pitch is not enough.”, added Kahn, reassembled. The Bavarians will have to show another face against Hertha Berlin next Sunday.
