Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann was satisfied with his team after his team’s 2-0 lead at the start of the Champions League at Inter Milan. He enjoys Leroy Sané’s gala, but he also explicitly praises a striker who got nothing.
“I always have fun when we win,” said Nagelsmann at the press conference after the 2-0 start of the Champions League at Inter Milan when asked how much fun he was having with his offensive quartet. “Great enthusiasm up front, our second goal today was similar to Paris’ second yesterday, almost congruent, the action,” added Nagelsmann.
Bayern Munich was “aware of players like Sadio [Mané, die Red.] decided so that we can be up front more variably, we’re doing well and then there’s a lot of joy when you win.”
When asked how he saw Mané’s performance, who had very few ball actions and only fired one shot on goal throughout the game and received the SPOX grade of 4.5, Nagelsmann said: “Sadio doesn’t have it easy physically as a target player against such big, strong players. But he had two decisive moments with both goals. He was involved in the 2-0, and in the 1-0 through his run, where he accompanied the big player a bit and that’s how the space is created, too. “
It’s not “always about having actions yourself, but also preparing actions through your own routes and he has participated in two decisive ones through his routes. So I’m satisfied,” added Nagelsmann.
