Bundesliga Bayern Munich did not deserve to lose against Bochum – Tuchel

Bayern Munich's coach Thomas Tuchel expresses anger after defeat

Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel felt the 3-2 Bundesliga defeat against lowly Bochum was “undeserved”.

Bayern suffered a third successive defeat for the first time since 2015 leaving them eight points behind Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga title race. The result followed a 3-0 league defeat to Leverkusen last weekend and a 1-0 loss against Lazio in the Champions League as coach Tuchel came under renewed pressure.

Bayern were also reduced to 10 men with 13 minutes remaining when Dayot Upamecano elbowed Kevin Stoeger in the box, picking up a second yellow, giving away a penalty and seeing red for the second match in a row.

“I don’t think the defeat was a fair result today. A lot went against us. We had five or six clear-cut chances and dominated the game. We went behind out of nowhere, but never gave up until the final whistle,” said Tuchel.

“We were outnumbered for a long time. I feel the defeat was different from the last two, it was undeserved. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong today. We perhaps lost a bit of momentum after the break and Bochum used that to fire themselves up. Overall, we performed differently today than in Leverkusen and Rome. We never lost hope.”
