Is it an indication of “Fabull”?…Tuchel “Kim Min-jae, Neuer, etc. won’t be happy just because I’m leaving”

Coach Thomas Tuchel left a significant statement suggesting factions within the team.

Bayern Munich won 2-1 against RB Leipzig in the 23rd round of the German Bundesliga in the 2023-24 season at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, at 2:30 a.m. on the 25th (Korea time). Munich, which added three points, remained in second place in the league (53 points), while Leipzig, which lost on the road, was in fifth place (40 points).

Munich, which is in its first full season under Tuchel, is facing a crisis as it has won three consecutive official matches and two consecutive league titles. Starting with the Leverkusen match in the 21st round, Munich lost in both the UEFA Champions League (UCL) Lazio and the League Bochum matches, achieving its humiliating record of three consecutive official matches in about 10 years.

With three consecutive losses, the team is losing hope for the trophy. Currently, Munich is in second place, eight points behind Leverkusen, and is on the verge of being eliminated after losing 0-1 in the first round of the UCL. As a result, public opinion has been mounting that Tuchel should be replaced, and even rumors of a possible defeat have surfaced.

In the end, Munich announced that it would end the season with Tuchel. “The club and Tuchel have decided to end the contract, which was originally scheduled to expire on June 30, 2025, on June 30, 2024. This is the conclusion of smooth talks between sporting director Jan-Christian Dressen and Tuchel,” Munich said on its website on Sunday.

If things go wrong, it could discourage his team. Fortunately, thanks to Harry Kane’s multi-goal, Munich beat Leipzig 2-1 to end its three-game losing streak.

Apart from his victory, however, Tuchel’s post-match interview has become a big controversy. According to German football team Barbarian Football, Tuchel said after the match, “I don’t think Alexander Pavlovic will be happy or relieved that I am leaving after the season is over. The same goes for Rafael Guerreiro, Kim Min-jae, and Manuel Neuer. I would have been very surprised if I were the backpack they were carrying. The main reason for making this decision was to avoid a confusing process. Now everything is clear. Like it or hate it, I don’t have to solve the mystery of what the backpack is anymore.”

Tuchel’s remarks also seem to be related to the factionalism within the Munich locker room recently reported in Bild. “The current locker room in Munich is divided between those who support him and those who do not,” Bild said on the 20th, citing the names of Neuer, Guerreiro, Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane, Kane, Eric Dier, Bantuchel Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Thomas Muller, Matthijs the Licht, Matthijs Tell, and Serge Nabri.
