Bayern Munich

last summer, reportedly did not have a great relationship with Julian Nagelsmann over his lack of playing time.

The former Liverpool star came on as a second-half substitute in a 4-2 victory against Dortmund, and Tuchel has backed him to rediscover his best form.

"I know him personally from England,"

Tuchel said.

"He's one of the top players, he scored 20, 30 goals every year for Liverpool and was an absolute key player there. His quality is beyond any doubt,"

Tuchel told reporters.

"Even at his age, it always takes time to acclimate after a change of clubs. That can take time. There's no doubt about his quality and what it can bring us. It's about trust and patience so he can get back into the rhythm. A goal usually helps the confidence. With the strikers, those situations will occur all the time when they lose a bit of rhythm due to an injury."

The 30-year-old Mane has scored 11 goals in 29 matches but has struggled with injuries this season.

Bayern host Freiburg in the DFB-Pokal quarter-finals on Tuesday. They are two points clear at the top of the Bundesliga and again will face Freiburg on Saturday before the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals against Manchester City next Tuesday.
