After Bayern Munich’s deserved 3-1 win over Mainz 05, Thomas Tuchel was inevitably faced with questions about the coming winter transfer window and statement of Uli Hoeneß regarding the club’s coming transfer activity. Hoeneß had stated that the club would not be undertaking a “major transfer offensive” in January.

As reported by @iMiaSanMia, Tuchel seemed to have learned from his previous public comments about the transfer activity of the club and his squad thinness and this time around he managed to expertly dodge any animosity towards the club’s patriarch, while still hinting a slight disagreement. Making sure to emphasize the squad’s quality, Tuchel made it clear that the squad needs to stay very healthy and regenerate accordingly, as actually can’t afford an injury crisis.

Are you on board with the statements from Uli Hoeneß regarding potential transfers in the winter or is this to be seen as a note of a lack of upport towards the coach from the club’s hierarchy?
