Bayern Munich head coach Thomas Tuchel’s pre-game press conference for the opening fixture for Matchday 4 of the Bundesliga against Leverkusen didn’t fail to impress.
Earlier, FC Köln’s head coach, Steffen Baumgart was of the opinion that in Bayern’s place, he would signed Victor Boniface over Harry Kane.
When asked to comment, Thomas Tuchel responded in elite fashion, making it very clear that the two are very different players; and then had his own go at Baumgart.
He went on sarcastically, to say that had he known Baumgart was so concerned with Bayern’s business, the club could’ve expanded their transfer committee to nine people.
