You may have seen the surprising story of Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel bringing a turtle plushy to one of the team’s training sessions. People were quick to come to the conclusion that Kylian Mbappé is being lobbied as a potential transfer. Well, prepare to get your spirits dampened because the real reason behind Tuchel taking a picture of the turtle plushy was because he was helping out his daughter with a school project:

BILD found out the reason Tuchel had a toy turtle in training today - The coach took the photo for his daughter. Her international school in Munich gave her the task of explaining her parents’ jobs as part of a career planning project - But in a special way: instead of people, stuffed animals should represent the parents in the photos.

You want to know why Mbappé is still relevant? It’s because Tuchel thought of a turtle with regards to his job, and you simply cannot forget about someone like Mbappé (who in turn is remembered for looking like a turtle). Which means...Mbappé is still a topic between the Bayern brass. You can’t deny it...well Real Madrid denies the links but everyone knows they’re still in for him.
