Thomas Tuchel has had a rather turbulent time as Bayern Munich coach. Ever since he replaced Julian Nagelsmann back in March, the 50-year-old tactician nearly snapped Bayern’s league winning streak, but he is currently undefeated in the Bundesliga and Champions League; he says he is doing his best to become a better coach every day.
“I’m understanding it better every day and hopefully becoming a better coach every day. I’m also learning every day”, the former Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea FC, and Paris Saint-Germain coach said (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia).
One of the highlights of Tuchel’s reign is that he gives more opportunities for academy/youth players to make a name for themselves compared to his predecessors. Players like Mathys Tel (supersub role), Frans Krätzig (stoppage time volley to win the game against Liverpool in August), and Aleksandar Pavlović (assisting Harry Kane in Der Klassiker) are all on the rise, as well as calling up Taichi Fukui, Lovro Zvonarek, and Tarek Buchmann (who continues to do his best impression of Holger Badstuber) to the senior squad.
