“The Locker room Is Like A Graveyard”
As it stands, Thomas Tuchel currently had the work of pressure on his shoulders, considering he has played a role in Bayern’s exits from the UEFA Champions League, DFB Pokal (German Cup), and potentially, the Bundesliga itself. Tuchel inherited a troubled locker room, which current Bayern Munich defender Matthijs De Ligt has called ‘a graveyard.’ De Ligt describes the locker room, comparing it to the Titanic hitting the iceberg. This surely shows where the issues are originating from.
At the same time, Borussia Dortmund are on the verge of claiming their first title in over a decade and they can do this, by claiming maximum points when they welcome Mainz to Signal Iduna Park on Saturday 27 May.
