Thomas Tuchel is coming under real pressure after the championship mistake at Bayer Leverkusen in Munich.

José Mourinho is said to be interested in his job at FC Bayern.

Munich – José Mário dos Santos Félix Mourinho.

A long name that combines many titles.

The 61-year-old football coach, widely known as José Mourinho, is currently without a job.

The Portuguese left AS Roma in January and has been without a club since then.

FC Bayern: José Mourinho is said to be interested in a coaching job in Munich

Could he soon become a candidate for FC Bayern?

Coach Thomas Tuchel is at least badly injured after Munich's weak 0:3 (0:1) in the top Bundesliga game at Bayer Leverkusen.

Joshua Kimmich even publicly criticized Tuchel after the bankruptcy in the Rhineland.

Because: The Bavarian Swabian initially left the Württemberg Swabian, undoubtedly a mentality player, to languish on the bench.

But is he slowly running out of arguments for continued employment?

As

Bild

reports, his coaching job in Munich is said to appeal to José Mourinho, whose CV is missing Germany.

José Mourinho: Former coach of Real Madrid and Inter Milan is probably learning German

“I heard he’s learning German.

He has flirted with the office in the past.

He would be ready,” explained sports reporter Christian Falk from

Bild

and

Sport Bild

on Sunday (February 11th) on

Welt TV

.

Mourinho was once considered a coaching candidate at Borussia Dortmund because he has good contacts with BVB managing director Hans-Joachim “Aki” Watzke.

Will it be Bayern instead?

Mourinho's CV at least reads impressively.

The Portuguese coach won the Champions League with FC Porto (2004) and Inter Milan (2010).

Striking: With Internazionale he won 2-0 (1-0) against FC Bayern on May 22, 2010.

Thomas Müller was in the starting line-up at the time, but could not prevent the defeat in Madrid after a double strike from Diego Milito.

José Mourinho: Champions League winner and Europa League winner

He also won the UEFA Cup with Porto (2003) and the successor competition, the Europa League (2017), with Manchester United in 2017.

With Chelsea FC, Mourinho became English champion three times (2005, 2006, 2015), with Inter he won the Scudetto twice (2009, 2010) and with Real Madrid the Spanish championship in 2012. And so on.

Is Thomas Tuchel faltering at FC Bayern?

Criticism of the coach is increasing in Munich

Meanwhile, in Munich and around the German record champions, criticism of Tuchel's work is increasing.

Sky expert Lothar Matthäus dissected the Bayern coach's tactics and line-up during the one-sided game in Leverkusen.

“What was Thomas Tuchel thinking?” asked the record national player: “Kim 

(editor’s note: Minjae)

 has only just returned from the Asian Cup and (

Matthijs

) de Ligt is on the bench.”

Tuchel had called up Kim, probably one of his favorite players, the Frenchman Dayot Upamecano and winter newcomer Eric Dier as a back three.

After weeks at the Asian Cup, the South Korean Kim visibly lacked the connection in the game, and the 30-year-old Dier - only a substitute at Tottenham until his loan - visibly had problems with the fast opponents around Amine Adli (23 years old) and Nathan Tella (24) to keep up.

“He tried something and it didn’t work,” said Matthäus about Tuchel’s basic formation.

That hasn't been played like that before this season, which was incomprehensible to me.

Bayern is a club that has played in a back four for years.

Bayern is a club that has played in a back four for years.

“They dictate the game, if you roll the dice now, you’ll see the players’ uncomfortable feeling,” criticized former FCB professional Stefan Effenberg in Sport1’s “One-two” for Tuchel’s choice of a three-man chain.

FC Bayern: Fans demand the expulsion of Thomas Tuchel with a poster at Säbener

Explosive: On Sunday, the day after the clear defeat in Leverkusen, individual Bayern fans on Säbener Strasse even called for Tuchel to be kicked out with a poster.

The 50-year-old coach had already failed miserably with Bayern in the second round of the DFB Cup against third division team 1. FC Saarbrücken (1:2).

With the team now five points behind Bayer 04, they are facing a season without a single title for the first time since the 2010/11 season, after the Munich team also lost the Supercup 0-3 (0-2) against RB Leipzig in August.

The Saxons will be guests at the Allianz Arena on February 24th, before that they play in the Bundesliga against VfL Bochum (February 18th) and on Wednesday (9 p.m., here in the live ticker) in the premier class in the first leg of the round of 16 to Lazio Rome.
