Max Eberl on Bayern Munich’s search for a new coach: “I don’t give a sh*t about the search for a coach.”

Speaking to ZDF (via @iMiaSanMia) after Bayern Munich’s 3-2 loss to Heidenheim on Saturday, director Max Eberl came out to try and rally everyone ahead of their game against Arsenal on Tuesday.

When asked about the search to replace Thomas Tuchel, Max Eberl said: “I don’t give a sh*t about the search for a coach. Now it’s all about the game on Tuesday. That’s already complicated enough We have to go to London on Tuesday, we’ll face a team that, with all due respect to Heidenheim, is a class above them in terms of the way they play football. We really have to make a proper turnaround so that we don’t get a slap to the face” 

Bayern must now re-group and try and get a result against Arsenal in London on Tuesday if they cannot then their season may be completely over in early April.

The former Borussia Mönchengladbach and RB Leipzig sporting director also went on to criticise the team after their 2-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund last week and this follow-up performance: “After Dortmund, we told the players that they should all take a moment to question themselves. And then, this is what comes out in the second half today. Everyone always demands, everyone wants, but actually on the pitch, when it matters – it’s not what you would expect from Bayern Munich. I’ve just arrived here and I see that. That is far too little. I have a lot, a lot of respect for what Bayern has achieved in the past decade. But this is just not the Bayern I know and where I always had great respect.”

What is certain for Bayern’s game is that Thomas Tuchel will remain in charge despite the embarrassing loss to Heidenheim. Sporting director Christoph Freund confirmed this on Saturday. 

This loss was particularly bad for Bayern as it not only meant that Leverkusen could win the next weekend against Werder Bremen with a win, but it is the fact that they threw away a 2-0 lead after Harry Kane and Serge Gnbary opened the scoring for Bayern. The Rekordmeisters’ last wins were against relegation-fighting Mainz and Darmstadt before the international break.
