Mendy is an ardent admirer of Tuchel following their time together in Chelsea. Following his sacking, Mendy spoke about his relationship with the German. He said:-
“I will always remember Thomas Tuchel very positively.
“The time with the Blues was super awesome with him. Tuchel has always given the maximum for his players and strived for the maximum. He could identify 1000 percent with his task.
“He was always straight forward, honest and loyal to his players. I really enjoyed my time with him. He came with his own ideas, his own game philosophy and it immediately suited our squad. Just four months after succeeding Frank Lampard, Chelsea have won the Champions League. That was sensational.”
However, Tuchel will want both of his Former superstars back in Bayern.
