João Cancelo Reacts To Thomas Tuchel’s Takeover And What It Means To Uefa Champions League
Portuguese footballer João Cancelo recently spoke about the unexpected sacking of Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann during his international duty for Portugal. Cancelo scored the opening goal in their 4-0 win over Liechtenstein before hearing the news about Nagelsmann.
Despite their brief time together, Cancelo expressed his gratitude towards Nagelsmann and thanked him for the experience.
Cancelo’s return to Munich will now be different without Nagelsmann, who was dismissed from his role as Bayern Munich’s head coach.
He spoke about his sudden departure, stating that he only found out about it after the match. Despite the shock, Cancelo is still grateful for the brief period that they worked together and wanted to express his gratitude.
The 27-year-old footballer is no stranger to Nagelsmann’s replacement, Thomas Tuchel. The German manager masterminded Chelsea’s first-ever Champions League victory over Cancelo’s Manchester City in the 2021 final.
Cancelo hopes that Tuchel can help him win the trophy this year, and he jokingly stated that Tuchel owes him a win after making him lose the final last year.
As Cancelo prepares for the rest of his season with Bayern Munich, he will undoubtedly have his sights set on achieving greatness with his new manager.
Despite the abrupt change, he remains optimistic about the team’s future and is determined to succeed. Bayern Munich fans will undoubtedly be hoping for the same and will be cheering on the team as they take on the challenges ahead.
