Bayern Munich said Wednesday that they would part ways with manager, Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season as the reigning German champions struggle to stay in the Bundesliga title race. The development was revealed in a statement issued by the club’s CEO, Christian Dreesen.

The statement read, “In an open, good conversation, we came to the decision to mutually end our collaboration in the summer. Our goal is to carry out a sporting realignment with a new coach for the 2024/25 season.

“Until then, every individual in the club is expressly challenged to achieve the maximum possible in the Champions League and the Bundesliga. I also explicitly hold the team responsible.

“Especially in the Champions League, we are convinced that after the 0-1 defeat in the first leg at Lazio Rome, we will advance to the quarterfinals in the second leg in our fully occupied Allianz Arena with our fans behind us.”

Tuchel said, “We will end our collaboration after this season. Until then, I and my coaching team will of course continue to do everything we can to ensure maximum success.”

Meanwhile, Bayern would look for a new sporting director under a new coach next season, CEO Dreesen concluded.
