The 49-year-old, who signed a contract until June 2025, will face one of his former sides, Borussia Dortmund in his first game in charge of the Bavarians.

He has hit the ground running with training and is expected to transform the fortunes of the club as the German giants target the treble this campaign.

In a video making the rounds on social media, Tuchel was seen in good spirits as he led his side through their paces for the first time at the club's training base, Säbener Strasse.

His innovative and slightly unusual training methods appeared to have the desired effect on his squad.

Tuchel's innovative training methods

Historically, Tuchel likes to make his training sessions as difficult and challenging as possible, per The Athletic.

At Chelsea, his charges were seen training with mini footballs, rather than the standard size 5s, in order to help improve their control and the accuracy of their tackles.

These methods appear to bear fruit, with the clubs under his tutelage having all enjoyed a measure of success.

Why Tuchel accepted Bayern role

Tuchel called it an honour to be named as the head coach of Bayern Munich after he was unveiled by the Bundesliga champions on March 25, Sports Brief reported.

The Bavarians caused a stir in the football world after they announced the appointment of the ex-Chelsea boss before the termination of Nagelsmann’s contract.

The 49-year-old manager, who has been out of a job since he was famously sacked by the Blues, has now revealed the reason behind his accepting the new role.
