After only two years, Thomas Tuchel had to leave for the end of the 2016/17 season of Borussia Dortmund.

Sporting the decision of the leadership of the BVB was incomprehensible. Tuchel led the team twice in a row in the DFB Cup final and won this 2017 against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 2.09 points, which the Tuchel averaged in every Bundesliga match with Borussia, did not reach any of its predecessors or previous successors in Dortmund.

Attack the bomb on the BVB bus

But then came the bombing on the team coach of Westfalen on April 11, 2017. The next day was for the players Tuchel the first leg in the quarterfinals of the Champions League at home against Monaco on the program.

Faced with having escaped with their own lives, not all the stars of the BVB were mentally capable of playing such an important match.

At that time, Thomas Tuchel was sought as a psychologist, more like a human than a coach.

Believing what former Funke media director Pit Gottschalk has to say in his book "Kabinengeflüster" about the corresponding events in the Borussia booth, then Tuchel missed the necessary instinct and sensitivity displayed to his team,

Initially, Tuchel did not oppose the execution of the match on the scheduled date.

Reus and Castro came tears

Marco Reus, now the captain and top scorer of the famous leader of a young and aspiring team, but was not willing to run aground on the night against Monaco. Similarly, former international Gonzalo Castro felt. During the discussion with Tuchel, reports Gottschalk, the tears should have flowed.

The day before, under the direct impact of the attack, in which the Spaniard Marc Bartra was the most injured, the club put all the free players to play against Monaco.

Tuchel: "And with these fags should I beat Bayern?"

Meanwhile, Tuchel, under the impression of Reus and Castro's discouragement, would have made the important statement: "And with these sissies will I beat the Bavarians?"

The tablecloth with director Hans-Joachim Watzke was finally cut off. Especially since Tuchel after the 2 to 3 loss to the umschwenkte of Monaco and now, in turn, criticized the execution of the date of the match by UEFA: "We have to work."

Watzke 17 days later confirmed the break with Tuchel bluntly. When he spoke before the home game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim with the Westfälische Allgemeine Zeitung, whose sports director Gottschalk was at the time, Watzke was asked about a possible divergence: "That's right, yes."

The affront of Tuchel after the interview of Watzke

Immediately before departure, live on the pay television channel Sky, confronted with this phrase, Tuchel forbade him to respond. This puts at risk the goals of the BVB season.

Watzke had heard enough. Tuchel was, despite his excellent sports record (only 17 losses in 107 competitive games) after only two years as coach of Dortmund.
