(Bundesliga) BORUSSIA DORTMUND Part Ways With Thomas Tuchel

Borussia Dortmund part ways with their head coach Thomas Tuchel despite winning the DFB Pokal due to power struggle with the club's hierarchy and key parts of the squad he could not win over after his two years with the club.

The Club confirmed his departure after he led them to their first trophy in five years defeating Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 in the DFB Pokal final, finishing third on the Bundesliga Table behind Leipzig and second in his first season in charge.

The Club decided to part ways with the Boss even with one year left with his contract and this was first announced on his Twitter account.

"I am thankful for two nice, eventful and exciting years. It's a shame it won't go on," the 43-year-old wrote. "Thanks to all the fans, the squad, the staff and to everyone who supported us. I wish BVB all the best."

The Club later released a statement "Eight-time German champions Borussia Dortmund and coach Thomas Tuchel are parting company with immediate effect.

"This is the result of a conversation between CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, sporting director Michael Zorc, Thomas Tuchel and his advisor Olaf Meinking, which took place on Tuesday.

"We would like to thank Thomas Tuchel and his coaching staff for the sporting success they have brought to BVB with the win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal final in Berlin.

"We wish Thomas Tuchel nothing but the best for his future professional endeavours."

Thomas Tuchel had issues with the Dortmund Leadership, as well as parts of the squad and the club's fans, dominated headlines this month, and talks between the two lasted only 21 minutes, which was reported in the German News papers. He had a spat with chief scout Sven Mislintat, a friend of Zorc's, over the signing of Spanish midfielder Oliver Torres from Atletico Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel will be receiving €2 million in compensation, as his contract still has a year in it.
