Novice Nagelsmann ready for ‘beer treatment’ – Süle Back – Sports news about ice hockey, winter sports and more

Before his masterpiece in the Bundesliga, Julian Nagelsmann’s mood was very bleak. The first division knockout continues to follow “Ambition” and Bayern Munich.

Master novice Julian Nagelsmann is totally comfortable about his first beer shower: “I once read that a beer treatment is supposed to be good for your hair.”

Bayern Munich coach said before winning the desired first title in the German Clasico against Borussia Dortmund. Right at home in his first season in Munich with several promotions, but also a strong frown, Nagelsmann was only radiating muted expectations from his first Bundesliga title.

“The last two weeks have passed out on the mood”

“The huge wave of euphoria will only emerge when we have achieved it,” said the 34-year-old, who could become the second youngest professional coach in the Bundesliga after Matthias Sammer 20 years ago when he triumphed with the BVB. “For now, the last two weeks have cast a shadow on the mood,” Nagelsmann said in a tone.

A disappointing Champions League quarter-final against Villarreal still decimated what they described as “ambition”. In addition, the lack of personal news, such as the new contracts of world footballer Robert Lewandowski (33), captain Manuel Neuer (36) and perennial champion Thomas Muller (32), or the announcement of resonant newcomers, did not help lift the mood. . .

In Neuer and Muller, the agreements are getting closer and closer. According to Kicker, a further year extension to 2024 is being discussed. Both are said to have received a signal that they could also play at Bayern Munich.

After Bayern: Nagelsmann is not looking for an “excuse”

Muller could crown himself as the lone record champion with his eleventh championship title on Saturday with a victory over his opponent, who has been visibly far away for years. In a draw, the decision will be delayed only with nine points and 27 goals with three games remaining.

Nagelsmann won’t change his style much

Whenever the 10th consecutive championship is confirmed, there is a big celebration. Nagelsmann, who shed “a few tears” after taking the championship title with Hoffenheim’s youth team A in 2014, must get emotional, too.

Eight clubs, including the top six from last season, have changed managers prior to this season. Although in Munich The transition after the successful era from his seven-title coach Hansi Flick to Nagelsmann is rated as successful. But next season Nagelsmann, who has been committed to a record transfer fee from rival RB Leipzig, will have to deliver more in the Cup and Champions League.

Here the surprise second round at Borussia Mönchengladbach (0:5) and the Champions League knockout defeat and draw against Villarreal clearly lowered the rankings. President Herbert Hainer gave it a “minus”.

“Of course you’re always questioning all sorts of things,” Nagelsmann admitted. “But I wouldn’t change my style too much. I’m trying to develop it, but you won’t see another Julian Nagelsmann next year.”

“Full throttle to make it happen on Saturday.”

In ‘Dream Job’, he was also the center of attention as the club’s foreign minister in the explosive controversy over Joshua Kimmish’s vaccination hesitation or the heated annual general meeting with the controversial issue in Qatar last year. “I basically have a great job, I love the football coach job,” Nagelsmann said. “But there are definitely more relaxing and beautiful moments than in the past three weeks.”

Future Dortmund player Niklas Sule is back in the squad against BVB after recovering from the flu. Nagelsmann said it was definitely a “special match” for him, and he expected “a usually good to very good performance” from the national player.

The coach also wants to “go full speed so it can be done on Saturday”. And then, after a long period of epidemic grief, there will finally be a big red and white party with thousands of fans in front of the balcony of the city hall. “If we become champions, something will definitely happen at Marienplatz.”
