Bayern Munich have explained why they sacked Julian Nagelsmann as manager and replaced him with ex-Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
The club's CEO, Oliver Kahn, has said the Bundesliga champions needed to go in a different direction and had to dismiss the 35-year-old.
In a statement on Friday, Kahn pointed to the fact that Bayern have played less attractive football since football resumed following the World Cup in Qatar.
"But now we have come to the conclusion that the quality in our squad - despite the Bundesliga title last year - has come to the fore less and less often.
"After the World Cup we have played less successfully and less attractively," Kahn said.
Nagelsmann spent less than two years in the Allianz Arena hot-seat having arrived in the summer of 2021 from Red Bull Leipzig.
He won the Bundesliga title after his first season, as well as successive German Super Cups in 2021 and 2022.
