PSG coach Tuchel rules himself out of vacant Bayern job
Bayern fired coach Niko Kovac on Sunday, one day after the seven-time defending German champion lost 5-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt for its heaviest Bundesliga defeat in more than 10 years.
Tuchel, a German, was touted among possible candidates and has reportedly been contacted by Bayern.
Speaking at a news conference Tuesday ahead of the Champions League group game against Club Brugge, Tuchel said: “It doesn’t interest me because I’m PSG coach,” adding that “I have a contract and I can’t think for one minute about other clubs.”
The 46-year-old Tuchel signed a new PSG contract last season until June 2021.
