When they at Bayern talk about unacceptable attitudes, I laugh with what I went through at PSG

The German was dismissed from the French club after a difficult start to the season, already marked by the defeat to his current team in the Champions League final in Lisbon. The PSG management's obsession with the Champions League trophy ultimately cost the German his position.

It took Chelsea only 25 days to set their sights on hiring the Teutonic coach. With the Blues, he won a Champions League, but a bad streak the following season cost him his job. Nagelsmann's departure from Bayern opened the door for him to return to his home country. Now settled in the Bavarian bench, he looks back and compares the differences among his various clubs at the ISPO conference.

His tenure as PSG coach

"In Paris, the rules are completely different from those in Germany. This helps me to better understand my players. When I hear at Bayern that a certain player's behavior is unacceptable, I laugh because I say to myself: 'you don't know what we had to face in Paris!'", the coach remarks when his tenure as PSG's coach is mentioned.

In the French city, he coincided with two superstars, Mbappé and Neymar, whom Thomas describes as "very demanding". This personal imposition made both of them improve. However, for Tuchel, the key with these types of players is always "to have a good connection, otherwise you can't convince them of your ideas".

For the German coach, in those dressing rooms, the responsibility doesn't only fall on the star players, but it's also important to give due significance to the "more discreet" players. Tuchel lists several he has coached: "Gündogan, Mkhitaryan in Dortmund, Marquinhos and Thiago Silva in Paris. Or even Kanté, Mount, Kovacic, Havertz in Chelsea... They are very important for leading a team".
