FC Bayern throws Nagelsmann out – successor should already be determined
A bang on Säbener Straße: According to reports, record-breaking soccer champions FC Bayern Munich are parting ways with coach Julian Nagelsmann with immediate effect.
FC Bayern Munich is kicking out its previous coach Julian Nagelsmann. The “Bild” newspaper and the usually well-informed Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano report this on Thursday evening. Corresponding information is also available to the “Kicker”. According to the football magazine, the only thing missing for an official announcement is the signature of the desired successor Thomas Tuchel at the German record champions. According to information from Sky, Nagelsmann will be informed of the decision by the Bayern management on Friday.
Julian Nagelsmann German champion with Bayern Munich
Former Mainz and Dortmund coach Tuchel was released from Chelsea at the start of the season following a Champions League defeat by Dinamo Zagreb. He was also under discussion as Tottenham’s new manager.

Nagelsmann only took over the team at the beginning of the 2021/2022 season and was immediately German champion, but was eliminated in the cup and in the Champions League. The 35-year-old’s contract actually ran until the end of June 2026. Recently, it has become much more restless on Säbener Straße, among other things due to the dismissal of goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic, the search for a “mole” who is said to have leaked internal information, or through the insult of a team of referees as “Pack” by Nagelsmann.
In the current season, Bayern have gambled away their lead over Borussia Dortmund and slipped down to second place in the Bundesliga table. In the DFB Cup and in the Champions League, the team has reached the quarter-finals. Winning three titles is still possible – but now without Julian Nagelsmann on the bench.
