Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Bayern Munich, has given an explanation of why he chose to accept the offer from the Bavarians when they came knocking. On Saturday, March 25, 2023, Tuchel was speaking at his unveiling at the Allianz Arena. He committed to a contract that will keep him with the team at least through the summer of 2025.
It’s a huge honour to be able to sign a contract with FC Bayern. I’d like to thank Oliver Kahn, Hasan Salihamidžić, Herbert Hainer, and Uli Hoeneß for their trust. Even if I’ve worked abroad for a while, you become even more aware of the club’s importance. The DNA of this club is commitment. It’s all about winning at Bayern, as well as the way you win. The squad here is one of the best and most talented in Europe, and I am excited to be able to work together with this squad.
After only six months as head coach of Chelsea FC, the German guided the Blues to their second UEFA Champions League championship in 2021 at the cost of Manchester City. He went on to win the Club World Cup and the European Super Cup, and in 2021 he was chosen as the World Coach of the Year. The opening game for Tuchel will be against Borussia Dortmund, his previous team.
