The decision to sack Julian Nagelsmann while he was on a skiing holiday and without informing him beforehand could be considered highly ruthless. This sudden turn of events has come as a shock not only to Nagelsmann but also to the footballing community as he had been expected to stay with Bayern Munich until the end of the 2022-23 season.
Despite Nagelsmann’s impressive record of winning 60 of his 84 games in charge of Bayern, the club has decided to make a change in their dugout during the March international break. This would give incoming coach, former Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel, time to work with the team before domestic action resumes. This sudden move suggests that Bayern is looking to make a fresh start and is willing to risk disrupting their current momentum to achieve their goals.
Bayern Munich is known for their dominance in the Bundesliga, having won the last 10 consecutive titles. However, the club has set its sights on bigger ambitions, and the possibility of winning the treble in the 2022-23 season is still on the cards. This may have led to the decision to bring in a new coach and make some changes to the team.
Despite the public commitment to Nagelsmann in recent weeks and the backing he received from the club in recent transfer windows, Bayern Munich has decided to part ways with him. The appointment of Tuchel, a successful coach with a proven track record, is seen as a statement of intent by the club, indicating their determination to maintain their dominance in the Bundesliga and achieve success in Europe.
