Thomas Tuchel walks out of interview after Bayern Munich thump Borussia Dortmund and fumes 'it's too much' | The Sun
THOMAS TUCHEL stormed out of his post-match interview after Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund.
Harry Kane scored his third hat-trick for the club in the 4-0 win but boss Tuchel was still not happy after the full-time whistle.
It was the perfect response for Bayern after their shock German Cup exit to third-tier Saarbrucken.
Tuchel, 50, came under criticism from sections of the German media for that result, so he gave a frosty reception to a reporter who interviewed him on the pitch at Signal Iduna Park.
The former Chelsea boss became agitated when asked about his return to Dortmund, who he managed between 2015-17.
Tuchel was then asked about the pressure of managing Bayern and gave a touchy response, leading the interviewer to probe further.

Tuchel later spoke to Sky Sports Germany and was clearly still in a bad mood from his previous interview.
He confronted pundit Lothar Matthaus and accused him and his colleague Dietmar Hamman of not holding back when it comes to criticising Bayern.
Tuchel felt his team have received harsh criticism despite winning eight out of ten games in Bundesliga, while also sitting top of their Champions League group.

Matthaus responded by suggesting to Tuchel that he should not take the criticism so personally, which further irked the Bayern boss.
Moments later he abruptly ended the interview, saying it was "too much" for him to deal with.
But he did shake Matthaus' hand before walking down the tunnel to be with his team.
