Bosses again coach Julian Nagelsmann (35) regardless of deep disaster. But it is additionally clear that after the worldwide break, Bayern must flip issues round shortly. Otherwise, the headwind might be even stronger.
Nagelsmann should reply in the negotiations. CEO Oliver Kahn (53) says: “We are presently on a global break. We take time to have a look at every part, analyze it, and have many, many conversations. And then now we have to verify we get again on the highway to success as shortly as attainable.”
Aside from narration and evaluation, Nagelsman cannot do a lot for now. 18 of its gamers are in the nationwide workforce. Only Choupo-Moting and backup goalkeeper Ulreich had been absent from the 0-1 draw at Augsburg.
Even extra silly: it is not till Tuesday of subsequent week that the final nationwide gamers return. Bayern will play in opposition to Leverkusen on Friday. Only two days left to organize.
Nagelsman nonetheless wants to handle these points:
► Storm disaster!
The largest and most evident problem: Bayern are not clearing possibilities! Sturm’s new signing Sadio Mane (30) has not scored in 5 video games and has solely scored thrice in the league. Other assaults are additionally uncommon: Gnabry and Sane have two league objectives every, Koman has one. Only Musiala scored with 4 objectives. Nagelsmann and bosses determined in opposition to a centre-ahead short-term answer like Kalajdzic in Stuttgart in the summer time. The Lewandowski hole was considered unfold over a number of shoulders, creating a brand new unpredictable offense with higher flexibility. But it solely labored in the starting.
► Management disaster!
With Mattjis de Ligt (23), they had been hoping for a real defensive boss who would management the recreation from the again. But the Dutchman struggled at the begin and is not (but) an actual chief. Hernandez has been in good type however might be sidelined for a very long time (muscle tear). Other prime gamers like Neuer, Kimmich, Muller are additionally not in prime type at the second.
► Brick Shadow!
The undeniable fact that Thomas Tuchel (49) is the finest coach on the market doesn’t make Nagelsmann’s job any simpler. Tuchel’s title hovers like his and Munich’s shadow. Nagelsmann wants the help of the workforce, it is essential to ease the tough locations and begin eleven conflicts. Otherwise, his rule might be undermined by each defeat.
In truth, “Mia san mia” is an amazing Bavarian trademark. Mentality and angle have nearly at all times been the huge distinction for BVB’s chasers, even in opposition to lesser opposition. Bayern are presently enjoying solidly in the Champions League, however battle in the league in opposition to Stuttgart or Augsburg.
Why does Nagelsmann take pleasure in the belief of the bosses?
Sporting boss Hasan Salihamidzic (45) has signed Nagelsmann to start out a training period with him if attainable. None of the final 4 managers (Ancelotti, Heynckes, Kovacs and Flick) lasted two full seasons in Munich – for varied causes.
Nagelsmann has a 5-yr contract value €25 million (till 2026). As BILD discovered, it is also in his contract fascinating start line. If departing after the finish of the present season, severance funds might be topic to the phrases of the contract. If he is fired early, will probably be a free negotiation.
For Bayern, which means that if Nagelsmann leaves this season (his annual wage is estimated at €8-9 million), will probably be very costly certainly. Rather, the undeniable fact that this severance clause solely applies beginning subsequent season signifies that Nagelsmann will have the ability to assist till the finish of this season.
But if title objectives are severely threatened, it is clear that top prices will not save Nagelsmann. With two wins in opposition to Milan and Barca in the Champions League, Bayern have one foot in the spherical of 16. The second spherical of the cup might be held in opposition to Augsburg. The league hole (presently 5 factors in the Union, three factors in Dortmund) is categorized as home catch-up.
Kahn mentioned: “Thank God we are nonetheless at the starting of the season and now we have the energy to return to the prime anytime. Where we belong, specifically at the desk.
