Not afraid to make tough decisions

Bayern Munich are planning a squad overhaul in the summer. They are ready to make tough decisions in the summer. Several senior players are facing an uncertain future in Bavaria. In his tenure in Bavaria until now, Thomas Tuchel has shown bravery when it comes to making difficult decisions.

The German coach had identified the need for a robust defensive midfielder in the squad. He was also not keen on the partnership of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka. With the way the season has transpired, Tuchel has been proven right about adding a defensive midfielder to the squad.

The former Chelsea boss is also not very rigid about decisions regarding players. Goretzka struggled for regular game time in Hinrude but delivered quality performances in limited opportunities. Tuchel rewarded Goretzka’s performances with an extended run in the starting XI.

Bayern will have a strong ally in Tuchel to shake up the squad during the summer transfer window. With a coach open to making tough decisions and a flexible mindset, Die Roten can certainly reap the rewards next season and enjoy sustained success in the long run.
