BILD columnist Alfred Draxler: Oliver Kahn is under more pressure than Thomas Tuchel



Julian Nagelsmann on leave with immediate effect! If the Isar had suddenly flowed backwards – the surprise could not have been greater.

And it shows that FC Bayern, with its high expectations, is probably the most brutal club in the world. For the first time in the last ten years, you’ve barely finished first in a crucial phase of the season when the coach is gone!

Of course, it is every employer’s right to react when the company’s goals are in jeopardy. Even his duty!

And at Bayern there were certainly a few irritations in the cooperation between Nagelsmann, the team and the bosses.

And yet many fans are wondering: Bayern crisis? What crisis actually?

There were eight wins in eight games in the Champions League. In the Bundesliga, the series champion is only in second place, but in the home game against BVB on April 1st, the regular place at the top can be occupied again. Others would like to have such “problems”.


Oliver Kahn, the CEO, is now under more pressure than the new coach Thomas Tuchel.

Now you can no longer afford to be eliminated in the Champions League quarter-finals against Man City or miss the 11th championship in a row – or there are automatically discussions about the management floor.

And then the quality of player transfers would certainly become an issue this season. EUR 67 million purchase of de Ligt – good! But Mané (32 million euros) has not yet been able to meet the demands of a world star. And Cancelo (loan) has yet to find his place in the team. Everyone else hardly matters. But maybe Nagelsmann used them wrong. And under Tuchel they suddenly work as planned.

Thomas Tuchel has signed a contract with FC Bayern until June 2025


Kahn will probably have had the backing of his decision at Tegernsee and in Grünwald from the veterans Uli Hoeneß and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, so that the famous Mia-san-mia doesn’t crack.

In the end, however, President Herbert Hainer, the chairman of the supervisory board, will have to decide whether throwing Julian Nagelsmann out with a bang was the right decision!

Black-red-gold – good pad choice

Rudi Völler made sure that there were no more “One Love” armbands and no more shut-the-mouth action at the international matches against Peru and Belgium. And that’s good. The captain’s armband is black, red and gold again.

Incidentally, Lothar Matthäus had it on her arm most often. The record national player (150 appearances) is also a record captain. He wore the bandage 75 times. This is followed by Manuel Neuer 60 times, Michael Ballack 55 times, Philipp Lahm 53 times, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge 51 times and Franz Beckenbauer 50 times.
