Kehl doubts that Tuchel could have any impact before Der Klassiker

Thomas Tuchel will face his former team but it is uncertain if he had enough time to improve Bayern Munich

Borussia Dortmund's sporting director Sebastian Kehl believes that Thomas Tuchel, who was appointed as

Bayern Munich

's coach and is a former BVB boss, will not have enough time to make a significant impact in Saturday's match against his former team. Bayern, who have won ten championships in a row, are currently one point behind Dortmund in the Bundesliga standings.

They are hoping that Tuchel can help them regain their form after a series of poor results that allowed their opponents to catch up in the title race.

"I don't know if FC Bayern will be better on Saturday with Thomas Tuchel than before under Julian Nagelsmann,"

Kehl told reporters.

"I don't think that this coaching staff will necessarily affect this game, because many international players are still away until the middle of the week and a great number of training sessions cannot take place.

"They will not have that many opportunities to work on tactical things."

Kehl doesn't expect the past conflict between Tuchel and


's management to have any impact on the upcoming game.

"It doesn't matter at all,"

he said.

"I think the issues from back then have long since been forgotten and cleared up."

Kehl added:

"I don't think it's a game against Thomas Tuchel at the weekend; in the end, it's between the first-placed team and the second-placed team.

"All parties are so professional. It's part of the process that coaches change and sometimes come to play against old clubs."

Regardless, Kehl doesn't believe that the outcome of the match will have a definitive impact on the title race, despite Dortmund having a significant chance to extend their lead to four points.

"We can make a big step up the table because we're playing against a direct competitor,"

he said.

"First plays second, a game everyone can look forward to.

"It's nice that we were able to make it such an exciting game. But the title will not be decided at the weekend."
