Unrest at FC Bayern: Uli Hoeneß’s Verbal Attacks on Coach Thomas Tuchel Cause Stir

Despite a largely convincing start to the season in terms of sport, things are simmering behind the scenes at FC Bayern. In particular, Honorary President Uli Hoeneß’s recent verbal attacks on coach Thomas Tuchel are causing unrest.

There is a great lack of understanding in the management team of the German record champions in view of Hoeneß’ behavior towards the head coach, reports “Sport Bild”, citing its own information. The paper even writes about a new “powder keg” at FC Bayern.

Particularly explosive: When he was hired at the end of March, Hoeneß was considered one of the biggest Tuchel advocates in the club.

At a training session on Säbener Strasse, he demonstrated his solidarity with Julian Nagelsmann’s successor with a grand gesture and was photographed in an intensive conversation with the new trainer.

According to the report, the tough squad planning in the summer drove a wedge between Hoeneß and Tuchel. It is said that the 50-year-old annoyed FC Bayern’s patron with his constant internal and public demands for a defensive-minded six.

FC Bayern: Sharp criticism of Thomas Tuchel from Uli Hoeneß

Even back then, Hoeneß spoke out by praising new signing Konrad Laimer in a media round as a good solution for this position. Tuchel’s calls for the “Holding Six” did not subside – apparently an affront from Hoeneß’s point of view.

The 71-year-old remained more or less silent publicly for a few weeks, but recently he lashed out violently against Tuchel.

In “BR” he described Nagelsmann’s dismissal of ex-bosses Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic as “not necessarily smart”.

Opposite RTL/ntv and sport.de Hoeneß then criticized Tuchel’s statements on transfer policy as “unwise. Because I don’t make my own team look bad by saying we are too thinly staffed, we are this, we are that.”

Contrary to Tuchel’s opinion, FC Bayern is sufficiently staffed. “If you see every weekend what we have on the bench – only national players – then we don’t have a thin squad,” explained Hoeneß.
