Bayern Coach Thomas Tuchel Urges Strong Performance as Stuttgart Visits Munich

Bayern Munich Manager Thomas Tuchel Vows to Leave No Stones Unturned to Win Against Stuttgart

After a stunning comeback from their humiliating 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt with a 1-0 victory over Manchester United earlier in the week, Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Bayern Munich, has pledged to go all out to secure another win against Stuttgart in the Bundesliga on Sunday. Their recent victory over United was sealed by Kingsley Coman’s second-half goal, and Tuchel is determined to set the record straight in the league.

Stuttgart currently sits just one place below Munich in the league table and has the opportunity to leapfrog the reigning German champions with a win at the Allianz Arena. Tuchel believes Sebastian Hoeness’ team has earned their current position in the league due to their consistent performances, which he acknowledged during a press conference.

Tuchel praised Stuttgart, saying, “They’re very consistent. Together they’re greater than the sum of their parts. They deserve to be up where they are. They’re very homogeneous, tactically very flexible. It’s impressive how Stuttgart plays. You can see Sebastian’s mark on the team. I think Stuttgart has had a consistent overperformance, so there must be good unity between the team and the coach. It’s completely deserved, so we’ll give everything our greatest respect and recognize that.”

However, Bayern will have to cope with the absence of Kingsley Coman and Noussair Mazraoui, both of whom sustained injuries during their match against Manchester United. The duo will join Serge Gnabry on the sidelines. Tuchel expressed hope of having their top scorer, Harry Kane, available for the game after recovering from an illness, while Jamal Musiala is reported to be in good shape.

Tuchel acknowledged the challenging fixture list and the injuries affecting the team, especially on the right side, stating, “We’ve got tough games. The fixture list is how it is, we know it beforehand. The two injuries on our right side hurt us. They were both in good form. King has had a very good season so far. Nous too. It came out of nowhere and hurts because both are important players. Harry Kane is a bit ill. We hope he can train again tomorrow. Jamal Musiala is fine.”

Bayern Munich is eager to maintain their unbeaten run at home and are determined to return to winning ways against Stuttgart. Tuchel emphasized the importance of maintaining high motivation and spirit among the players, especially with fewer competitions for places, stating, “Everyone wants minutes. It’s even more important now we don’t have as much competition for places that the intrinsic motivation is high. We showed that at Old Trafford. It needs to be there again on Sunday. If we won’t match that with the same spirit as Stuttgart show every game, then we won’t win.”

The game promises to be an exciting encounter, with both teams aiming for victory to further their standings in the league table. Bayern will need to bring their A-game to fend off the threat posed by a resurgent Stuttgart team.
