However, after potential replacements like Julian Nagelsmann, Ralf Rangnick, and Xabi Alonso chose to stay with their current teams, Bayern reconsidered and approached Tuchel about the possibility of continuing with the club.

“This is the last press conference here. The February decision remains,” Tuchel said on Friday.

“There were talks again with the club in the past week but we did not reach an agreement on a continued cooperation so we stick with the February decision.

“We did not agree but I won’t go into individual points. That all happens behind closed doors.”

“The decision for me to leave was taken in February so you can imagine that my head, after processing, was 1000% behind that decision.

“There was the theoretical possibility of a 180 degree turn now and the initiative came from the club.

“The reasons why it did not happen, I don’t know, are minimal. Maybe the reasons are not clear, also for the decision in February, but it is what it is.”

Tuchel became Bayern head coach last March and led the Bavarians to the Bundesliga title last season. However, Bayern will end the current campaign without any silverware for the first time in over a decade.

They were knocked out by third-tier Saarbrucken in the DFB-Pokal before losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals, ending the campaign without a trophy despite spending a league-record €100 million to sign striker Harry Kane.

Tuchel will oversee his last game in charge of the Bavarians on Saturday when they travel to Hoffenheim for their final Bundesliga match of the season.
