Thomas Tuchel targets the Treble with Bayern Munich

Thomas Tuchel is targeting treble with Bayern Munich this season after he was unveiled as the club’s new manager following the sacking of Julian Nagelsmann.

The German was appointed as Bayern head coach on Friday after they ruthlessly sacked Nagelsmann.

Tuchel who has previously managed Chelsea, PSG and Borussia Dortmund – has signed a contract with the 31-time German champions until 30 June 2025

Speaking to the media on Saturday, Tuchel said: ‘It’s an honour and a distinction to be asked by Bayern Munich.

‘I’ve been in very close contact with Bayern before. But back then I couldn’t wait. It would never be appropriate to pressure anyone. Things went very quickly this time, it’s a top solution for me.

‘The timing was surprising, I didn’t expect it and there was no contact beforehand. I assumed that I would continue my career abroad. The first interview was on Tuesday evening. The size of the challenge was the deciding factor that I wanted to do it.

‘We don’t really have much time. I probably won’t see the internationals until Friday. Winning all titles is still possible. Therefore, it will be all about the details. I have an idea of ​​what to do and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s about playing for all titles.

‘Even when you work abroad for a while, you become even more aware of the importance of FC Bayern. It’s one of the biggest clubs in Europe and the world.

‘That’s a big responsibility too. ‘In the end there’s also a personal reason for me to work here close to my family and in the state where I was born. There are many reasons that made me accept quickly’.

Bayern Munich’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić and CEO Oliver Kahn were also present at the press conference to speak on Tuchel’s arrival.

Salihamidzic revealed Bayern had contacted Tuchel, 49, on Tuesday to speak to him about taking over – three days before they formally sacked Nagelsmann.
