Bayern Munich are reportedly not set to sack Thomas Tuchel, despite their poor form so far this season. The German boss has come under increased pressure in the Allianz Arena dugout and clubs around Europe are monitoring his situation closely as a result.

Bayern were beaten for the fourth time so far this season on Sunday when losing 3-2 at the hands of VfL Bochum. Goals from Takuma Asano, Keven Schlotterbeck and Kevin Stoger proved decisive at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion, with Jamal Musiala and Harry Kane on the scoresheet for Bayern.

Tuchel’s side missed several clear-cut opportunities on the day, though that hasn’t prevented serious questions from being asked about his position as manager. However, according to Sky Sports Germany, the former Chelsea boss ‘will not be dismissed’ and he also has no intention of resigning and walking away from his role.

Bayern are now a distant second in the Bundesliga, with Xabi Alonso’s unbeaten Bayer Leverkusen eight points clear at the top of the table, and it looks like it will take a drastic change of events to turn the tide in what remains of the campaign.

Speaking after his side’s defeat to Bolchum, Tuchel said: “The defeat was not fair today, a lot went against us. We had an xG value of 3.4 and we had four, five, six top-class chances. We completely dominated the game and actually went behind out of nowhere. If we play this game five more times, we’d win it five times. I don’t blame the players today”.

CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen also spoke out after the match, saying: “I feel rubbish. I don’t believe in big statements about the coach. This issue isn’t on our mind at the moment.”
