Coach Andrea Trinchieri will leave FC Bayern Munich after getting swept against Ulm in the semifinals.

“That was my last game in Bayern,” said the Italian on Friday immediately after the end of the semifinals at Ulm (0-3).

Speaking about his days with the club, Trinchieri added: “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”.

Coach Trinchieri had one thing to add about the last game: “I’m just mad that the ref gave me a technical in overtime in my last game. It’s really unbelievable, because I think it was a very unfair move at such a moment. Some referees think they are the police: you park your car two inches above the line and they give you a ticket. But we’re not cars, this isn’t about parking, it’s about two fighting teams and a great coach on the other side. That’s the only thing I regret today. Grazie e arrivederci .”

Trinchieri came to Bayern Munich in 2020 and was a Cup winner in 2021 and 2023. In addition, he was the coach that led the first German club to reach the playoffs in the Euroleague in 2021 and 2022 with the Munich team.

With Trinchieri’s departure, former Real Madrid Pablo Laso is set to replace him.
