A historic achievement for Tuchel that rivals Guardiola and Mourinho

Bayern Munich’s qualification to the Champions League semi-finals had a special impact on the career of Thomas Tuchel, who is now competing with coaching legends in the most expensive competition in the world of club football.

Bavarian defeated Arsenal 1-0 in the second leg of the quarter-finals to qualify for the semi-finals, which is the first time that the German club has reached this round since winning the title in 2020.

Thomas Tuchel became the first German coach in history to qualify with 3 different clubs to the Champions League semi-finals, ahead of Jurgen Klopp.

Tuchel previously qualified for the semi-finals with Paris Saint-Germain before losing the final to Bayern, then he reached it with Chelsea, and then won the title at the expense of Manchester City.

At the same time, Tuchel joined a historic list that includes 3 names of coaching legends, by qualifying with 3 different clubs to the Champions League semi-finals.

Those who had previously done so were Jose Mourinho (with Porto, Chelsea, Inter, and Real Madrid), Pep Guardiola (with Barcelona, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich), and Carlo Ancelotti (with Milan, Real Madrid, and Chelsea).

It remains to be noted that this season is one of Tuchel’s lowest and worst seasons in his career, as he lost the Bundesliga title and the cup, and it was decided that he would leave Bayern at the end of the season.
