With nine consecutive wins in competitive games, FC Bayern Munich is back on the road to success after an interim crisis in results. Trainer Julian Nagelsmann has revealed that the reporting during the less successful time bothered him.
“The constant repetition of unnecessary things was annoying. If you write once that my Harley is in the underground car park and that I’m wearing blue shoes instead of green, it’s okay – but if you write it ten times, it’s exaggerated,” said Nagelsmann the game of his Munich team against FC Schalke 04 (LIVETICKER). sky.
The Bayern coach reacted to the reports during the weak phase of Munich (only three wins from seven competitive games). Various media wrote there that the team was bothered by Nagelsmann’s sometimes unusual outfits and found it strange that the 35-year-old went to training with his Harley-Davidson or skateboard.
Nagelsmann also gave an update on the injury situation in the team. Right-back Noussair Mazraoui was out against Schalke with a hamstring problem. Joshua Kimmich took over the post on the right in the back four for him, since substitute Josip Stanisic was recently struggling with tonsillitis.
Sadio Mané is also still missing from Munich due to a torn tendon. Nagelsmann is not critical that he will still travel to the World Cup in Qatar for Senegal: “Sadio is a world star. If he fails, the whole nation trembles. They try everything and want him to play at the World Cup. In the end we can’t rush anything and it’s his body. But trying everything and consulting different doctors is good and sensible.”
Nagelsmann praises Musiala: “No one who surfs the wave of success”
A fit Jamal Musiala, who once again received praise from Nagelsmann, is all the more important for the German record champions in the current situation. “He’s not one to just ride the wave of success. You never feel like you have to get him off somewhere and put the brakes on him. He’s a very down-to-earth, well-mannered young man who just always wants to improve.”
Nagelsmann has no doubts that the 19-year-old wants to be one of the best in the future. “He knows that he has a responsibility with us and in the national team. He recently said he wants to be the best player in the world. He can do that,” said the Bayern coach.
