Bayern ready to back Tuchel despite failure in Europe

Bayern Munich are ready to back manager Thomas Tuchel despite his side’s struggles, reports The Athletic.

The German replaced Julian Nagelsmann last month but has failed to hit the ground running.

Bayern have since crashed out of the DFB Pokal and will likely be dumped out of the Champions League tonight.

They lost 3-0 in the first leg of their quarter-final tie against Manchester City and are seeking a comeback.

The Bundesliga club are just two points ahead of Borussia Dortmund with six games remaining.

They are aiming for their 11th consecutive title, but Bayern need more than that to tag a season successful.

Tuchel has not been able to bring the immediate success the board had hoped for.

However, they believe he can turn things around next season.

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss will make a couple of squad changes during the summer transfer window.

He will also have the chance to get the best out of his players during the pre-season.

Bayern stars have already been impressed with his methods, and the board feel confident ahead of next season.

Failure to replace Robert Lewandowski during the summer transfer window is proving fatal.

The Bavarians brought in Sadio Mane from Liverpool, but the Senegalese forward has flopped.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has led the line for the majority of the campaign, but he has missed recent games to injuries.

The Cameroonian could return to action against Man City tonight, and Bayern will look to produce a response.

It could be tricky for them to overturn the deficit, but Tuchel will learn his lessons.

Bayern will be back next season, and their new manager will be keen to prove himself.
