Thomas Müller addresses his fans in his regular "Müller mail". He also talks about the board quake at FC Bayern.
Munich – "I'm sure I'll go south for a short time and put my feet up on the beach in the classic way," announced Thomas Müller after the nerve-wracking season finale, in which FC Bayern regained the upper hand in the end and celebrated their eleventh championship in a row.

Thomas Müller speaks out after crazy Bayern season
As a player, that's his right. After all, a long, grueling season including the Winter World Cup comes to an end. At the end of the Bayern season, is it now time to say: All's well that ends well? Rather less. The record champions have opened up too many construction sites themselves. It can't have been a good season when first the coach and then the entire club management have to take their hats off – in a worrying way, as not only Sepp Maier thinks.
In his "Müller-Mail" – a fan newsletter that he sends out at regular intervals – Müller sums up the past season. He also talks about the dismissals of Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic, who took him by surprise a few minutes after the final whistle in the middle of the championship frenzy.

Müller has already experienced a lot in his career - so it speaks volumes when he describes the past year as "perhaps the most turbulent of my career". "I would like to take this opportunity to thank Oli and Brazzo for their time together in office," Müller writes.
"I've seen them both as a board member and a player. I also got to know them as people off the pitch. And so I have always had a good relationship with them," he emphasizes. "It's quite clear that her leave of absence could go like this in the fast-paced football business. I'm curious to see what happens next. I'm sure I'll meet them on the golf course," he announces.
Maybe already in the coming summer break? Everyone involved would probably have enough time. For coach Thomas Tuchel, the summer is unlikely to be quite so relaxed. He will have to take care of the transfer policy as long as no new sporting director is installed. Primarily together with returnee Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. And, of course, Uli Hoeness, that goes without saying. (epp)
