Andrea Trinchieri leaves Bayern Munich after the Bavarians’ elimination from the BBL playoffs. Bayern got swept by Ratiopharm Ulm in the semi-finals (0-3) and Trinchieri revealed that this was his last game as Bayern head coach.
“I think that was the last game of my tenure at Bayern. I came to Bayern in the pandemic and the players and coaches found a way to go through a lot, to fight to the very end. I think this group deserved a title more. But in the crucial moments, luck turned its back on us. So we have two championship titles and two EuroLeague playoffs until game five. It can always be better, but we really gave everything we could.”
“I want to thank all my players who pushed their limits in difficult moments. I would like to thank Mr. Hainer for his tireless support, he gave me the confidence to lead the team into the new arena. I want to thank my partner Marko (Pesic), who didn’t want a coach back then, but a partner. Thank you for this sincere relationship.
“And I want to thank Daniele Baiesi, who has always been by my side, it was a very efficient cooperation with six titles. I also hug all my assistants who really gave me the maximum support. It’s over, it’s been a great ride. I had no regrets and people can now find a label for those three years. I did my best every day, made mistakes and corrected them. That’s it, thanks and goodbye,” Andrea Trinchieri told Magenta Sport television after the 102-104 loss in Game 3.
Andrea Trinchieri took over the Bavarians in 2020 and helped the club win the German Cup twice. In the EuroLeague, Bayern reached the playoffs in consecutive seasons (2021, 2022).
With Andrea Trinchieri leaving the club, Pablo Laso is expected to make his return to the EuroLeague and take over the German club.
