The search for a new head coach at Bayern Munich had another disappointing twist this week. Julian Nagelsmann snubbed interest from Bayern to sign a contract extension with DFB until 2026. The Bavarian club was taken aback by Nagelsmann’s decision as they were reportedly confident about bringing him back to Munich.

Bayern had previously identified Xabi Alonso as their top target to replace Thomas Tuchel. The Spanish coach shunted interest from Bayern and Liverpool to stay at Bayer Leverkusen. The record Bundesliga champions switched their attention to Nagelsmann.

Max Eberl remains confident about finding a breakthrough in their search for a new coach. The Bavarian club has been heavily linked with several coaches in the last two days. Considering the fact that they have lost out to their top two targets, sticking with Thomas Tuchel for one more season may not be the worst idea.

Tuchel’s contract at Bayern was previously expiring in 2025. Die Roten decided to part ways with him at the end of the season after a poor run of form in the Bundesliga during Ruckrunde. Let us look at three reasons why sticking with Tuchel for one more season will be a wise move for Bayern.
