Bayern's Brutal Nagelsmann Sacking Explained!

In a shocking turn of events, Bayern Munich recently parted ways with Nagelsmann, terminating his contract with immediate effect.
Since he joined the Bavarian giants, the German-born coach oversaw 84 games, winning 60 of them and only losing on just 10 occasions. Averaging 2.31 points per match, it is no wonder why his departure came as a surprise. According to reports, the 35-year-old 'lost the locker room', which could be because of one of two reasons for his departure. The first reason is rumoured to be due to his tactical analysis being leaked, which reportedly caused a drop in morale in the dressing room. The other reason stems from Nagelsmann’s personal life. He has allegedly left his wife and is now dating a journalist. Both reasons will cause more than enough damage in the locker room.

Bayern have already hired former Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel as his replacement after the German parted ways with Chelsea early into this season. The former Paris Saint-Germain, BVB, and Blues coach has a known track record of butting heads with senior management, but, as the old saying goes, class is permanent, which is why the Bundesliga champions have moved swiftly in appointing the 49-year-old, whose first match in charge will be against his former side this coming weekend.

On the latest episode of the Bundesliga Connection, DW Sports correspondent Kres Harrington breaks down Julian Nagelsmann's sacking from Bayern Munich and the possible appointment of former Borrusia Dortmund and Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel. Kres also speaks about Germany's performance thus far under the guidance of Hansi Flick and what ‘Die Mannschaft’ has in store for the 2024 European Championship.
