Six Bayern Munich players leading revolt against Thomas Tuchel as Harry Kane stance made clear

Six Bayern Munich players leading revolt against Thomas Tuchel as Harry Kane stance made clear

Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel is under increasing pressure.

Six Bayern Munich players are reportedly leading a revolt against manager Thomas Tuchel.

Back in March 2023, Tuchel was appointed Bayern manager, replacing Julian Nagelsmann after a poor run of form.

Less than a year in charge of the Bavarian club, Tuchel is now under increasing pressure to turn things around.

Bayern have suffered three defeats in a row, losing to Bayer Leverkusen, Lazio and most recently Bochum.

It has now been reported that as many as six players are said to be unhappy with Tuchel as manager.

According to German news outlet BILD, the likes of Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Matthijs de Ligt, Mathys Tel and Serge Gnabry are the players showing discontent towards Tuchel.

The report claimed that Kimmich and Goretzka do not understand why Bayern made the decision to replace Nagelsmann with Tuchel in the first place.

On the other hand, there is a group of players who are reportedly happy with Tuchel as their boss, including the likes of Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala.

Bayern’s English duo Harry Kane and Eric Dier are also said to be happy as Tuchel played a key role in luring them to the club.


Club legend and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is also backing Tuchel after the commitment he showed when he suffered a serious injury last season.

Speaking after the match against Bochum, Tuchel said: “If you ask me, if I firmly still believe me and coaching staff can turn things around — yes.

“Growing pressure? That happens after every defeat. But today we never stopped, never stopped trying.”

Bayern CEO Jan Christian Dreesen was asked whether Tuchel will in charge of Bayern’s next match against RB Leipzig, he said: “Of course. I am not a fan of monstrous coach-backing statements — they usually run out after a week.

“But this [Tuchel’s future] is not an issue we are dealing with at the moment. We have to focus on our next matches.”
