Angry Thomas Tuchel breaks slalom pole in Bayern Munich training during chaotic session

SportBible, reported that during a recent training session, Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Bayern Munich, expressed his dissatisfaction with the team's standards and reportedly broke a slalom pole in frustration.

The newly appointed 49-year-old German head coach took over from Julian Nagelsmann, who was controversially dismissed from his post. 

Despite only being on the job for a month, it seems that the coach is already feeling the weight of the expectations.

Tuchel, who previously managed Chelsea, has been in charge of seven games since joining the Allianz Arena, but has yet to find success with his team. Out of those seven games, he has won two, drawn two, and lost three.

Despite being the reigning Bundesliga champions, they suffered unexpected losses in every cup competition, including the DFB-Pokal quarter-final match against Freiburg and their exit from the Champions League at the hands of Manchester City.

Tuchel's future at the Bavarian club is in doubt following a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Mainz 05 on Saturday. A board meeting to discuss his tenure at the club has been scheduled for May 22, as reported by BILD.

There are growing rumors that the player is dissatisfied with the team, and an incident during training before their upcoming match against Hertha Berlin has only added fuel to the fire.

According to Goal, Tuchel expressed dissatisfaction with how the Bayern players conducted themselves during the final training session's diamond small field exercise.

Despite making multiple attempts to correct the attacking patterns and player movement, Tuchel's efforts were unsuccessful in bringing about the desired improvement.

As a result of being extremely frustrated, Tuchel seemed to have snapped a slalom pole with his knee while his fellow assistant coaches looked on.

 As a result of their poor form of late, Borussia Dortmund now sit one-point ahead of Bayern in the Bundesliga title race with five games remaining.

Former Germany international Dietmar Hamann has raised doubts over Tuchel's future at the club.

"The leadership may be confused, but the coach also makes a very confused impression in his four weeks so far," he told Ruhr Nachrichten.

"If he also gambles away the championship, it's clear that his position would already be weakened."

Hamann added: "I've rarely seen a change of coach where things get worse in the short term. That's exactly what happened at Bayern."
