Thomas Tuchel Is Angry About Criticism: “It Offends Me Deeply”

Just before the Champions League semi-final, Bayern Munich honorary president Uli Hoeness criticized Tuchel’s management approach. Tuchel was extremely upset about both the content and the timing of the remarks.

Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel has responded sharply to criticism from the club’s honorary president Uli Hoeness.

As Tuchel’s team prepares to host Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday, the lead-up to the match has been overshadowed by Hoeness’ comments. Hoeness accused Tuchel of lacking both the capability and the willingness to develop players, suggesting he prefers to rely on new signings instead.

This critique follows a petition signed by nearly 20,000 fans advocating for Tuchel’s continuation at Bayern beyond this season. However, following this latest exchange, Tuchel’s future at the club now appears uncertain.

“It offends me deeply as a coach. If we have proven something in the coaching team over the last 15 years, it is that young players – especially from the academy – always have a place with us in training and, through performance, always have a place on the pitch,” Tuchel said in response to Hoeness’ comments, according to 90min.

“And by the way, we have now proven that! I have very little understanding of it. I find it absolutely baseless! This is actually so far away from reality that I wouldn’t have reacted to it at all if it hadn’t come from Uli. The fact that comes from our boss before Real gives it a different flavour.”

The German outlet kicker reached out to Hoeness for a reaction to Tuchel’s rebuttal, and the honorary president of Bayern Munich stood firm in his position.

Hoeness claimed that the media had blown the dispute out of proportion, but he reiterated his stance, maintaining that Tuchel favors acquiring new players over developing the existing team members. He also expressed his intention to clarify his views more explicitly in the future.

In the midst of this conflict, Bayern Munich is reportedly finalizing arrangements to appoint Austria’s manager, Ralf Rangnick, as Tuchel’s successor at the season’s end.
