Former Bayern Munich manager and Germany national team coach Julian Nagelsmann is not having it with his former club Bayern Munich after the club announced the decision to part ways with Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season.

Bayern Munich, reeling on the backdrop of underwhelming performances in the last three games, announced their decision to terminate Thomas Tuchel's contract at the end of the season.

Tuchel took over from Julian Nagelsmann as Bayern Munich manager in March 2023, and won their 11th straight Bundesliga title two months later, but has now been shown the exit door barely 12 months into his two-and-a-half-year contract.

His predecessor Julian Nagelsmann was also relieved of his role as manager at the club after a poor run of results that threatened the club's Bundesliga title chances.

At the slightest instance of subpar delivery, Bayern Munich are not always hesitant to call it a quit with their managers. At least Julian Nagelsmann and Thomas Tuchel's case has been an affirmation. And it appears Julian Nagelsmann is unfazed by the club's handling of sharp falls in expectation.

Speaking in an interview with German outlet Der Speigel, Nagelsmann, who is now Germany's national team head coach, said Bayern Munich signed him to change things at the club but were not patient enough with him to realize the objective.

Nagelsmann contended managers need time to change things and implement their vision for clubs, hence dismissal at the slightest instance of unfavorable outcomes is not ideal.

The former RB Leipzig manager cited Manchester City and Liverpool as examples of clubs who allowed their managers enough time to turn things around.

'I was signed by Bayern with the proviso that I would change things.

There are clubs that give you time. Jürgen Klopp was at Liverpool for five years before he became champion there for the first time. Pep Guardiola only won the Champions League title with Manchester City after seven years. The coaches at Bayern Munich don't get as much time to develop something.'

'What is communicated to the outside world after a separation has little to do with reality. But that's how it's always been done in football, and that's how it will be for the next 30 years.' He added.

Bayern Munich will continue with Thomas Tuchel until the end of the season before parting ways with him,
as per the club statement.

Meanwhile, the search for his successor is on with Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso emerging as a top candidate, including former Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskaer.
