Tuchel might have more time to choose where to go next season because he could probably be sacked if Bayern Munich fails to beat Lazio in the Champions League round of 16. Bayern Munich might also have second thoughts about sacking Tuchel. BILD reports that Bayern are uncertain about dismissing Thomas Tuchel immediately even in case of elimination from the Champions League. The reason is there are doubts over who will replace him until the end of the season.

The people in charge at Bayern Munich are torn over the decision. There's the idea that if Bayern are out of the Champions League, it wouldn't matter if Tuchel stays anyway because the season would more or less be over. However, if the coach stays, there's also the risk that many players would be increasingly frustrated, which would complicate the contract talks with them. It's not completely ruled out that Tuchel would continue even if Bayern were eliminated on Tuesday. It would also depend on the 'type of elimination' and the performance the team will show.
