Thomas Tuchel is set to remain Bayern Munich manager for the time being, reports from Germany have stated.

On Sunday, Bayern were beaten 3-2 by Bochum, losing despite being dominant for large parts of the game.

Bayern have had a terrible past few days, with them succumbing to three consecutive defeats in all competitions, see them fall eight points off Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen and trail 1-0 against Lazio in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

As it stands, the German giants could be set to go a full season without winning a single trophy.

Commenting on the team's current state, Leon Goretzka said that it "feels like a horror movie that won't end."

"We're making too many individual errors. We have to question everything. Bayern Munich Bundesliga champions, do you believe it? Not right now, I'm being honest," he added.

Tuchel has come under heavy criticism, with Bayern putting in a host of underwhelming displays, uncharacteristic of a team that possesses so much talent.

While many have called for him to get the sack, Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg has confirmed that he will "definitely remain" as Bayern Munich manager and will not be dismissed.

He also confirmed that the manager is not considering resigning, wanting to keep fighting.

"Such defeats are not fair. A lot went against us today. The loss were not like the last two defeats. Everything that could go wrong went wrong today," Tuchel said when speaking about the loss to Bochum.

He added that while it is "not so realistic" for Bayern to become Bundesliga champions, he pointed out that last season they continued to hope until the end and they ended up winning the league.

Tuchel continued by adding that he feels the "support" of the Board of Directors, knowing his relationship with them and that they can work together.

Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen also confirmed that there are no plans to dismiss him, responding with "of course" when asked if Tuchel will remain as manager.

At the time of writing, Bayern are second in the Bundesliga, with 50 points from 22 games, and they have fifth-placed RB Leipzig coming to the Allianz Arena next week.
