Tuchel has the quality to coach Bayern – Heynckes
Bayern Munich Manager, Jupp Heynckes believes that Thomas Tuchel has the required quality and experience to manage the historical football club.
The Bayern legend who was brought in for his fourth spell with the club to calm the tides after former Manager, Carlo Ancelotti was fired at the first half of the season has been remarkable as Bayern is now on course for another treble.
Even as Bayern Munich management wants him to remain at the club for another 12 months, the 72-year old tactician has repeatedly made it clear that he will leave at the end of this term. He has, however, raised former Borussia Dortmund’s Manager, Thomas Tuchel’s hands to take over from him.
While speaking with ESPN, Heynckes said: “Tuchel has the quality to coach Bayern, I rate Thomas Tuchel. He has continued the progression of the youth teams at Mainz. That is the stairway to success that you must take, learning the correct approach and people skills.”
“Under Tuchel, Borussia Dortmund played excellent football with a good system — all of today’s modern footballing elements were there for everyone to see.
“Tuchel’s side finished runners-up, won the DFB Pokal and played attractive football. I had fun watching BVB, that’s why I respect and rate him as a very good trainer.”
Tuchel was however sent packing by Dortmund last year, just a few days after winning the club’s first trophy in five years after it was reported that there appears to be a misunderstanding between him and the club board.
