“Was part of the transfer committee” Tuchel’s whining really gets on Hamann’s nerves

FC Bayern are plagued by injury concerns and many professionals are out. A reason for lamentation for coach Thomas Tuchel. He thinks the squad is too thin. Sky expert Dietmar Hamann is annoyed by his comments – and contradicts them.

Former national player Dietmar Hamann has criticized coach Thomas Tuchel’s repeated statements about FC Bayern’s lack of squad depth. Of course, the German soccer record champions from Munich could have had one or two more players in the squad, “but they will still get through the games until the winter break. I really can’t listen to this constant whining anymore,” said the 50-year-old at Sky90. From the perspective of the former Bayern professional, Tuchel also played his part in the decisions made during the past transfer period and the current situation. “He can’t simply shirk responsibility because he was part of the transfer committee. And he couldn’t decide who he wanted,” said Sky expert Hamann.

Tuchel had repeatedly called for reinforcements at FC Bayern. Honorary President Uli Hoeneß then spoke of “unwise statements”. “If you see every weekend what we have on the bench – only national players – then we don’t have a thin squad,” he said in an interview with ntv/RTL.

FC Bayern will have to do without national player Leon Goretzka in the next few games because the 28-year-old suffered a metacarpal fracture in the 3-1 win against FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday. Bayern will also be missing defender Dayot Upamecano (hamstring injury) and attacker Serge Gnabry (broken forearm) in the Champions League group game on Tuesday at Galatasaray Istanbul (6.45 p.m./Amazon Prime Video and in the live ticker). In addition, the use of Raphael Guerreiro and Noussair Mazraoui is questionable, according to Tuchel.

Hamann’s former teammate Thomas Strunz is also convinced that the topic of squad width should not be discussed “after every game in front of television cameras”. “As a player, this leads to you dealing with things that are simply unnecessary,” said the 55-year-old. Tuchel said “nothing other than that everyone else in the club who is responsible for transfers didn’t do their job. This is criticism of the leadership, squad planning, implementation and who is responsible for it all.” Tuchel has to ensure a good atmosphere in the dressing room, “because top performances have to be delivered every three days. But if I keep repeating the topic, then as a player I might only have 95 percent confidence in what the coach says.” .
