Thomas Tuchel has admitted his disappointment at failing to win the Bundesliga title during his only full season at the club.

Bayern Munich played their final home game of the season on Sunday, and Thomas Tuchel was given a rousing reception from the Allianz Arena faithful ahead of his impending departure from the club.

The 50 year old has enjoyed a stint full of ups and downs at Bayern Munich, leading the club to the Bundesliga title in dramatic fashion last season, before succumbing to Bayer Leverkusen in the current campaign. And he reflected on his time at the club following the 2-0 win over VfL Wolfsburg.

"I would have preferred to celebrate winning the Bundesliga title where I've been coach for the whole season," Tuchel said in an interview with Martin Volkmar. "But of course, all titles count and we'll take it with us. In the end, of course, it was a hair's breadth and super close [last season]. But I'm very self-critical and of course I came here to compete for and win all the titles. We didn't manage to do that and that's why I'm not satisfied."

Tuchel also said that he was pleased to receive the support of the Bayern Munich fans, but added that it was his decision to not be given a formal farewell by the club. "It was definitely what I wanted. I'm not a big fan of these things. And we agreed that the season wasn't over yet."

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Thomas Tuchel beyond the end of the season. Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked with the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League winner. While some Bayern Munich fans would also like to see him continue to stay at the club. Tuchel said on Sunday that he doesn't know yet where he will be managing next season.
