Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel has refused to accept Dietmar Hamann apology after he criticised him for praising La Liga.
Tuchel’s recent comments about his admiration for La Liga, caused controversy as it was suggested that he is open to replace Xavi at Barcelona.
The ex-Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann called Tuchel’s quotes ‘a disgrace’, but later apologised. Bayern Munich also released a statement to defend Tuchel from Hamann’s criticism and pour cold water on the speculation around the German coach’s future.
According to Sport1, Tuchel has refused to accept Hamann apology and blasted him for his comments.
He said: “The things that happened were completely taken out of context and said deliberately. Statements were deliberately made that were not true. I was at a fan meeting and we were all shocked at what he [Hamann] made of it. That’s why I don’t care if he apologised. I don’t buy it and that’s why it’s irrelevant.”
Bayern Munich came from behind to beat Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1 on Saturday. Bayern is in second place in the Bundesliga after 20 matches, two points behind unbeaten Bayer Leverkusen.
Tuchel’s side next match is against Leverkusen next weekend in a decisive title decider.
