Ex-Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel ‘IRRITATING’ Bayern Munich board with his ‘erratic’ behaviour, claims shock report | The Sun

THOMAS TUCHEL has reportedly irritated the Bayern Munich board with his "erratic" behaviour during the summer transfer window.

It was a mixed summer for the Bundesliga giants as they signed top target Harry Kane from Tottenham but did miss out on other targets.

Bayern completed the signing of the England star for £104million, as well as deals to bring Konrad Laimer, Kim Min-Jae and Raphaël Guerreiro to the club.

However, the club did miss out on signing Declan Rice from West Ham before he went on to Arsenal, and a deal to sign Joao Palhinha collapsed on deadline day.

After the club's 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, Tuchel, 50, revealed that he thought that the squad was still "thin" defensively.

He said: "The squad is a bit thin, a bit small.

"We have six trained defensive players for a four-man chain, which is perfect."

It has since been claimed by German outlet BILD, that Tuchel's "negative" comments have irritated the club's board.

It is said that the manager's statement was met with "incomprehension" by the board, who felt they had done everything they could to sign Palhinha.

While it is also claimed that the board thought that Tuchel was trying to be too "creative" with the names he was bringing forward, which has seen the manager's behaviour being called "erratic".

Tuchel is believed to have preferred the club to have signed Rice instead of Kane, while the board saw the striker as a priority.

After Kane arrived, the board gave in to Tuchel's demands and tried to sign a player similar to Rice.

The club would have been unlikely to be able to afford both, with Rice also fetching £105million this summer.

This led to the move for the Cottagers star, which was close to being completed on deadline day.

Palhinha, 28, was thought to have had pictures in the Bayern shirt before the deal collapsed due to Fulham not being able to sign a replacement.

As Bayern allowed Benjamin Pavard to move to Inter Milan and not take up the option to sign Joao Cancelo, the club has been left seemingly short in defensive options.

However, the board were not convinced by Tuchel's targets, which were Southampton's Armel Bella-Kotchap and Chelsea's Trevoh Chalobah.

The former Chelsea boss helped Bayern to win the Bundesliga last season after replacing Julian Nagelsmann although he did get a helping hand as Borussia Dortmund failed to beat Mainz on the final day of the season.

Despite the issues off the field, Bayern have started the new campaign in fine fashion.
