Borussia Dortmund and coach Thomas Tuchel part ways

Borussia Dortmund and head coach Thomas Tuchel have agreed to go their separate ways, the club announced on Tuesday.

"We'd like to thank Thomas Tuchel and his coaching team for their successful work at BVB, which culminated in the DFB Cup win over Eintracht Frankfurt in Berlin on Saturday. We'd like to wish Thomas all the best in his career," read an official club statement.

"As an employer, Borussia Dortmund will not divulge the reasons behind the parting of ways, which is the result of a longer process and is supported by the entire club board, and we ask all parties not to judge it based on unsubstantiated rumours.

"BVB attaches great importance to the fact that the cause of the separation is by no means a disagreement between two people. 

"The well-being of Borussia Dortmund the club, which amounts to much more than sporting success, will always be more important than individuals and any possible differences between them."
