Berlin, Germany |BAZZUP | While a sizable group of spectators and media had gathered outside to watch Bayern Munich’s new coach Thomas Tuchel’s first day of practice, just a small group of individuals had gathered on the practice field.
Only two practices with the whole squad are allowed before Saturday’s crucial Bundesliga match against Borussia Dortmund because the majority of the team is abroad on international duty.
Apart from six young players and a few benchwarmers from the professional team, only Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane, and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting arrived for duty. The 49-year-old appeared to be handling the situation calmly.
It’s not only a wild assumption to think that Julian Nagelsmann’s replacement may have had an easier transition.
Nonetheless, the former coach of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain accepted the situation as it was and began with a brief session and a lot of amusing remarks because he appeared to be in a good mood.
He gave Sane a light kick to the back before yelling out numerous encouraging words to the struggling forward.
Last Friday, the new coach committed to being a genuine “player’s coach,” with the goal of “improving all players,” by signing a contract that would last until 2025.
The 2021 UEFA Champions League victor reiterated his directive to foster trust and excite joyous anticipation since the bond between him and his new team needs to deepen and mature.
The newcomer began his development work by calling the first and presumably most significant cornerstones of his squad before walking onto the training field.
In order to spend as much time as possible with the players before the league match against Dortmund and the Champions League match against Manchester City, Tuchel will use the following days.
We all anticipated the outcome and made the best of it, he remarked.
Despite the unrest that Nagelsmann’s firing provoked among supporters and certain members of the team, Tuchel fosters a sense of hope that things might get better soon.
As “things developed as they did without me thinking about becoming the coach of Bayern,” according to Tuchel, he is concentrating on the future.
Tuchel stated, “I feel thrilled to be here and coach one of Europe’s top sides.
This Friday, the 2017 German Cup champion will participate in his first practice with the complete team.
