Bayern Munich will sack former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season if he fails to win the Bundesliga title, according to ex-German international Dietmar Hamann.

Tuchel, 49, stepped into the hotseat at the Allianz Arena following the removal of Julian Nagelsmann in March. 

Tuchel’s first month in charge of Bayern Munich have not gone according to plan as he has won just two games across seven matches in all competitions, which has seen Bayern Munich drop to second and drop out of the Champions League and German Cup.

As reported by Ruhr Nachrichten, Hamann said: “The leadership may be confused, but the coach also makes a very confused impression in his four weeks so far.

“If he also gambles away the championship, it’s clear that he’ll be fired.”

Tuchel, CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic are all under fire for Bayern Munich’s poor form.

“Now they have it in their own hands and should not give up the lead in the standings,” the former Bayern Munich midfielder said. “I can well imagine them winning the last five games.”

While Tuchel was brought in to improve performance at Bayern, the 49-year-old Hamann says that this has not happened.

“I’ve rarely seen a change of coach where things get worse in the short term. That’s exactly what happened at Bayern,” Hamann said.
