Bayern Munich have confirmed that they have parted ways with manager Julian Nagelsmann and that he will be succeeded by Thomas Tuchel.
News got out on Thursday night that the 35-year-old was expected to be relieved of his duties before the return of club football.
Nagelsmann was quizzed about such news on his way back from a skiing trip, admitting he had not heard from Bayern regarding his job security.
But after meeting with club officials on Friday, Nagelsmann was ‘released’ from his role at Bayern, with ex-Chelsea boss Tuchel stepping in.
In a statement, Bayern said: “FC Bayern München has released head coach Julian Nagelsmann. This decision was taken by CEO Oliver Kahn and board member for sport Hasan Salihamidžić in consultation with club president Herbert Hainer.
“Nagelsmann will be succeeded by Thomas Tuchel. Tuchel will receive a contract until 30 June 2025 and will supervise squad training for the first time on Monday.
“Along with Nagelsmann, assistant coaches Dino Toppmöller, Benjamin Glück and Xaver Zembrod have also been released.”
