Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel says he needs to "process" the decision to part ways with club CEO Oliver Kahn and board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic.

Despite winning their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title, the club decided to sack the duo, who were responsible for replacing Julian Nagelsmann with Thomas Tuchel as coach in March.

"Hasan and Oliver called me about 8 weeks ago and convinced me that we should do it together. I also persuaded and convinced my assistant coaches," Tuchel said in an interview with Sky Germany, reacting to the dismissals.

"The two of them were instrumental in getting us to go on this journey and that we were trusted. So first of all I have to process this. I've known about the decision since yesterday. Instead of celebrating, we have another political issue".

Kahn will be replaced by Jan-Christian Dreesen, while it's still unclear who will succeed Salihamidzic.
