WHAT HAPPENED? The Bayern dressing room has been split into two factions with one who backed the decision of the club and the other who sided with Nagelsmann, according to BILD. The club parted ways with the German tactician last week and replaced him with Thomas Tuchel at the helm.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: While Manuel Neuer, Sven Ulreich, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, Joao Cancelo and Sadio Mane were against the manager, players like Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Matthijs de Ligt, Dayot Upamecano and Benjamin Pavard wanted the 35-year-old to stay.
AND WHAT'S MORE: The manager's sacking was largely due to Bayern's recent run of poor form in the Bundesliga as they had won just five times in their last 10 games. Nagelsmann has been tipped to replace the recently-deposed Tottenham boss Antonio Conte since departing Die Roten.
