In a recent interview with the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich youngster Mathys Tel discussed various topics, including the previous season, his strengths on the field, his thoughts on Thomas Tuchel, and his teammate Harry Kane.

When discussing Thomas Tuchel, Tel offered insights into the manager’s coaching style and his qualities, noting, “He’s very precise as a coach. He really pays close attention to the details both in an attacking and defensive sense. He’s very precise in how we run and how we move. This is a style of coaching that I really like because details are extremely important. You can’t underestimate the details.” (via @iMiaSanMia)

He continued, “He is a top, top coach, and I have learned a lot from him. Sometimes he can be very close to the details and other times high level. It’s a positive thing for the team because it allows us to do much better in terms of our performance.

Regarding their communication, Tel mentioned that Tuchel occasionally converses with him in French. However, the manager prefers to communicate with him in German, explaining, “Yes, sometimes we speak together in French. But he prefers to speak to me in German, as that way I learn German.”
