After the season, Thomas Tuchel and FC Bayern will go their separate ways. The coach will apparently be paid a substantial severance package by the German record champions.

FC Bayern have still not found a new coach for the coming season. A successor is being sought because Thomas Tuchel will leave the club after the current season. How to part ways financially with the 50-year-old has now apparently been settled.

According to BILD, those responsible have found a severance package with the coach. According to the agreement, Tuchel will be paid the salary he would have received for the upcoming 2024/25 season in the summer. However, he will not receive any bonus payments, which would also be regulated in his contract. Tuchel is said to have earned around 10 to 12 million euros per year at FCB.

Tuchel threatened with a title-less season

His contract in Munich would have run until the summer of 2025. However, after a series of defeats in the Bundesliga and Champions League, the decision was made in February to part ways at the end of the season.

Tuchel took over from Julian Nagelsmann at the German record champions in March 2023. The current national coach was sacked at the time. Tuchel then went on to clinch the German championship with Bayern at the last minute.

Before FC Bayern, Tuchel coached Mainz 05, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea FC at professional level. He won the Champions League with the Londoners.

This season, however, he could remain without a title with Bayern. They were eliminated early in the DFB Cup by third-division side Saarbrücken and are already ten points behind league leaders Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. Their best chance of winning the title is still in the Champions League. Here, Munich will face FC Arsenal in the quarter-finals.
