Bayern Munich kicked the board.

In the middle of the season and even after taking Lionel Messi's Paris Saint-Germain out of the race in the Champions League round of 16, the all-powerful German club made official this Friday the break with its coach Julian Nagelsmann and his replacement by Thomas Tuchel with a contract until June 2025, before the final stretch of the 2022-2023 season.

Nagelsmann had arrived at Bayern in mid-2021 from RB Leipzig and had a contract until June 2026. On Thursday, several German media, including Bild and Kicker, had advanced the unexpected news of Bayern's divorce with their coach and were already pointing Tuchel as the likely successor.

Nagelsmann found out that he had been fired from Bayern Munich through the German press and while on skiing vacation in Austria with his girlfriend, as it came to light in recent hours.
