"Won't last long": ex-protégé about Tuchel's future at Bayern


Thomas Tuchel is the new coach at Bayern Munich. His former number one doesn't think it will last long.

Thomas Tuchel is the new coach at Bayern Munich.

His former number one doesn't think it will last long.

Munich – The half-life of a coach in professional football is not particularly high – not even at Bayern Munich.

Julian Nagelsmann, who was released after around one and a half years, also felt the effects.

His successor is Thomas Tuchel.

But even before his first appearance on the sidelines, there is a debate about his length of stay in Munich.

Tuchel's average tenure as a coach is just over two years, with the five years in Mainz raising the average.

One of his ex-protégés cannot imagine a long-term future for Tuchel at FC Bayern and reveals exciting details.

Thomas Tuchel

Born on August 29, 1973 (49 years) in Krumbach

Contract with FC Bayern until June 30, 2025

Coach stations: FC Augsburg II, FSV Mainz 05, Borussia Dortmund, Paris St. Germain, FC Chelsea, FC Bayern Munich

Former protégé reveals crazy Tuchel idea: Nagelsmann had to buy a ghetto blaster

"It won't last long" and "It can't go well for long," says Sebastian Schulze in an interview with RTL, as far as the cooperation between Thomas Tuchel and FC Bayern is concerned.

The ex-goalkeeper knows Tuchel from their times together at FC Augsburg II. Tuchel took over in January 2007, brought in Julian Nagelsmann from 1860 Munich and made him captain.

"He was already relatively progressive back then and tried a lot to have a psychological effect," says Schulze about Tuchel, who signed a contract in Munich until 2025.

“So that we were relaxed and relaxed before the first game, he passed around a shot of sparkling wine and then he introduced his ritual: Before every game, the song “Stronger” by Kanye West was played.

That's why he sent boys to buy a ghetto blaster – including Julian.” Schulze, who now works as a player's agent, was fatal in an argument with Tuchel in training.

Ex-player is "completely dismantled" by Tuchel and demoted to substitute

"Because our goalkeeping coach was ill, we had to take part in a game practice - we were supposed to run after them.

After I got it wrong twice, it got louder.

To which I replied that I'm a 'goalkeeper and not a field player'," says Schulze about Tuchel.

"Then he verbally ripped me apart.

The training was over for me and from that moment I was no longer his number 1.”

Schulze doesn't see the new Bayern coach as easy.

"He stressed before every game that we should go to an arrogant level.

According to the motto: None of the opponents can train with us because nobody is of the same level," says the 38-year-old, who ended his career in 2015 at Fort Lauderdale.

Nevertheless, he believes that Tuchel "has of course developed further and now has different behavior patterns in dealing with everyone." This is also supported by the fact that goalkeeper legend Buffon admires Tuchel.

In contrast to Nagelsmann, a different wind will blow at FC Bayern under Tuchel.

Short trips to Paris like Serge Gnabry or Leroy Sané always being late will “not work” with Tuchel, Schulze announced.

Chelsea professional Kai Havertz warns the Bayern stars of a Tuchel peculiarity.

Will the stars stay with FC Hollywood in the long run?

"It won't last long.

Football-wise it will probably be good because he is also a big Pep Guardiola fan.

But as I said before, he's not an easy guy," Schulze is convinced.

At FC Bayern, Tuchel also has to deal with the two strong bosses Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic.

"This can't go well for long."

What awaits the Bayern stars under Tuchel was already indicated in the first training session on Tuesday.
