Six Bayern Munich stars are reportedly leading a revolt against coach Thomas Tuchel, who is set to leave at the end of the season.

The Bavarians already confirmed this week that Tuchel will be parting ways with the club at the end of the current campaign after the recent poor run of form.

Bayern sit eight points adrift of Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen and they currently trail Lazio 1-0 in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie.

There has reportedly been some dressing room unrest in the last few weeks, with a number of players not happy with the way Tuchel has been running things.

German publication BILD reported that Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Matthijs de Ligt, Mathys Tel and Serge Gnabry have showed their displeasure with the former Chelsea tactician.

The report states that Goretzka and Kimmich were perplexed as to why Tuchel replaced Julian Nagelsmann in the first place, when the team were still competing in three competitions.

Tuchel replaced Nagelsman last season but only ended up winning the Bundesliga on the final day of the season after Borussia Dortmund failed to win their final game.

As things stand, it looks as if the Bavarians will end the season without silverware since the 2011/2012 campaign.
