FC Bayern: Rummenigge on Nagelsmann – ‘Decisions worth discussing’ – FC Bayern Munich

Plain text in BILD on TV!

The morning after Bayern’s historic victory, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (66) was a star guest on the “Die Lage der Liga XXL” programme. The record champions grabbed their 10th consecutive title yesterday with a 3-1 victory over the BVB.

The former Bayern coach, with moderator Carly Anderberg and moderator Valentina Masseri, analyzed the league’s successes and also spoke about coach Julian Nagelsmann (34), who “only” won the championship in his first season in Munich.

Rummenigge: “Basically, he did a great job until December. In the second half of the season, I think there were one or two decisions that were worth discussing in terms of tactics or things in general. But he is basically a good, fun coach and we hope he stays at Bayern for a long time. Because when he was For Bayern as a coach with a certain continuity, those years have always been successful.”

And also: “He is a young man who needs his experience as a coach. It is the first really big club after Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, where he did a really good job, where the demands are also high. Sometimes the national title is not enough for Bayern Munich. You expect to reach at least the semi-finals in the Champions League. We missed it. That’s now this year by eliminating Villarreal. Of course that was a disappointment. He will have to put that away. He will have to attack again next year. You have to give it time.”

Meanwhile, Rummenigge celebrated his 10th consecutive Bayern title as a fan for the first time. He says, “First of all, I loved having the title celebrated again in front of 75,000 spectators. It was a great atmosphere.”

And: “Our toast after the match. I warmly congratulated Oliver Kahn and Herbert Hainer, now in charge of the club as president and president. The first was for Oliver Kahn. And the first title, when you’re in charge of this club, is very important. I’ve always said that the Bundesliga title is not a consolation prize, it’s Actually the most honest title.”

Rummenigge also talked about…

… Lack of excitement in the German League: “Basically, you have to ask yourself: What is football? Football is primarily about feelings. If you look at the Bundesliga table today: Bayern are 12 points behind second place, second eight points behind third again. There is a lack of tension at the top. There is more excitement under and around the Champions League and Europa League venues as well. The top needs more passion and more excitement, like the Premier League or Italy. The Bundesliga needs that too.”

.. Competition from Dortmund: “I think Dortmund are trying to upgrade a bit. You can get good money in the treasury by selling Haaland, which you will probably immediately reinvest in the problems that have arisen in the current season. It has already been noted that there is a lack of speed and quality in defense and especially in defence. Central. If they upgrade there now, that would definitely be an advantage. Adeyemi is a good player, but you shouldn’t make the mistake of reading too much into the boy too quickly. He is a player who also needs to develop. Dortmund has always been known in the past for developing players well. The last example was Sancho, they developed it and then sold it to Manchester for a lot of money.”

His successor, Oliver Kahn: “Basically, I have a good, friendly and respectful relationship. Oliver has to give his way, make his own decisions. Here he errs. You have to hand the wand sometime. I don’t want to give him constant advice. He will have to make his own experiences.”

.. Conference League: “It was founded because it was the desire of the Scandinavian or Eastern European clubs. They wanted to gain new experiences in Europe.”

The last clubs of Frankfurt and Leipzig in the European Championships: “Unfortunately, there are no German clubs in the Champions League anymore. It will be important for the Bundesliga to put an exclamation mark. Both teams can do that. The opponents they had in the quarter-finals were much tougher than the opponents in the semi-finals. Just don’t make the mistake of underestimating your opponent’s case.”

UEFA Champions League semi-finals: “I have been a good friend with Pep Guardiola since we were in Bavaria. The national title is not enough for him. I wish him the best. I know how obsessed he is with this title. When he plays against Spanish teams, it is very important and emotional for him.”
