Thomas Müller one of six players against Bayern Munich head coach Thomas Tuchel

Bild reports that there are six players that are against Thomas Tuchel as Bayern Munich coach, amid increasing tension between the coach and players.

Thomas Müller is the headline name within the group. It is reported that the 34-year-old has become unhappy with his playing time under Tuchel and does not fit the system of the manager.

Midfield duo Joshua Kimmicha and Leon Goretzka are also against Tuchel. Both have been the victims of Tuchel’s public demand for a defensive midfielder. It was also revealed that Kimmich’s relationship with Tuchel is broken after the 3-2 loss to Bochum at the weekend. Both Kimmich and Goretzka also do not understand the reasoning behind switching from Julian Nagelsmann to Tuchel. 

All of Matthijs de Ligt, Mathys Tel and Serge Gnabry are unhappy with their game time under Tuchel. Most notably de Ligt 

However, there is also a group that is happy with Tuchel as coach. Players who have played well under the coach such as Leroy Sané and Jamal Musiala are in the group. Whilst players such as Harry Kane and Eric Dier who Tuchel played a big role in bringing them to the club are in favour. Most notably, Manuel Neuer is also in this group due to Tuchel’s commitment to the goalkeeper during his injury last season.
