Mintzlaff was referencing the significant transfer fee Bayern paid for Nagelsmann in 2021. He expressed regret over losing Nagelsmann, believing that RB Leipzig could have won the Bundesliga title if he had stayed.

Tuchel and Bayern Munich had announced earlier that the German tactician was on course to leave his role at the end of the season after overseeing a disappointing campaign for the Bavarians.

The former Chelsea manager led Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga title last year, but lost his magic wand this season as the German giants are poised to end the campaign trophyless.

Bayern Munich surrendered their Bundesliga title to Xabi Alonso-led Bayer Leverkusen, who are one game away from competing the league season undefeated.

The Bavarians also lost out to Real Madrid in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League.
