For Thomas Tuchel there is no need to rethink his position as coach, which is only limited until the summer FC Bayern. “I have an agreement with the club that has been communicated and is maintained,” Tuchel emphasized on Friday before his guest appearance at the soccer bundesliga on Saturday (6:30 p.m.) at 1. FC Union Berlin. Tuchel was asked if he envisioned continuing with Munich.

Shortly before the press conference it was announced that Julian Nagelsmann would continue as national coach until the 2026 World Cup. Nagelsmann, Tuchel's predecessor at FC Bayern, was also considered a good candidate to succeed him at the German record champions.

Tuchel: “Rudi and Julián form a very harmonious team”

Bayern agreed with Tuchel at the end of February to terminate the contract, which actually runs until the end of June 2025, at the beginning of this summer. Since then, rumors have been repeated about Bayern's future coach.

With the extension of Nagelsmann's contract in the DFB Tuchel said he recently hoped to expand his collaboration with national team manager Rudi Völler. “I see Rudi and Julian as a very harmonious team, they are a good team and they complement each other very well and support each other.”

The decision was good for the national team “because it provides clarity,” Tuchel said. Now the DFB must build on the momentum of recent successes in the European Championship. “Then they will have to put it all together,” Tuchel added with a laugh.
