Bosses again coach Julian Nagelsmann (35) regardless of deep disaster. But it is additionally clear that after the worldwide break, Bayern should flip issues round shortly. Otherwise, the headwind will probably be even stronger.
Nagelsmann should reply in the negotiations. CEO Oliver Kahn (53) says: “We are at the moment on a world break. We take time to take a look at every part, analyze it, and have many, many conversations. And then we’ve got to verify we get again on the street to success as shortly as doable.”
Aside from narration and evaluation, Nagelsman cannot do a lot for now. 18 of its gamers are in the nationwide staff. 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 towards Leverkusen on Friday. Only two days left to arrange.
Nagelsman nonetheless wants to deal with these points:
► Storm disaster!
The greatest and most obvious 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 targets every, Koman has one. Only Musiala scored with 4 targets. Nagelsmann and bosses determined towards a centre-ahead short-term answer like Kalajdzic in Stuttgart in the summer time. The Lewandowski hole was regarded as unfold over a number of shoulders, creating a brand new unpredictable offense with larger 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 kind however will probably be sidelined for a very long time (muscle tear). Other high gamers like Neuer, Kimmich, Muller are additionally not in high kind at the second.
► Brick Shadow!
The proven fact that Thomas Tuchel (49) is the finest coach on the market doesn’t make Nagelsmann’s job any simpler. Tuchel’s identify hovers like his and Munich’s shadow. Nagelsmann wants the help of the staff, it is essential to ease the tough locations and begin eleven conflicts. Otherwise, his rule will probably be undermined by each defeat.
In truth, “Mia san mia” is an excellent Bavarian trademark. Mentality and perspective have virtually at all times been the huge distinction for BVB’s chasers, even towards lesser opposition. Bayern are at the moment taking part in solidly in the Champions League, however battle in the league towards Stuttgart or Augsburg.
Why does Nagelsmann get pleasure from the belief of the bosses?
Sporting boss Hasan Salihamidzic (45) has signed Nagelsmann to begin a training period with him if doable. 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 price €25 million (till 2026). As BILD discovered, it is also in his contract attention-grabbing place to begin. If departing after the finish of the present season, severance funds will probably be topic to the phrases of the contract. If he is fired early, it will likely be a free negotiation.
For Bayern, which means if Nagelsmann leaves this season (his annual wage is estimated at €8-9 million), it will likely be very costly certainly. Rather, the proven fact that this severance clause solely applies beginning subsequent season implies that Nagelsmann will be capable of assist till the finish of this season.
But if title targets are severely threatened, it is clear that top prices will not save Nagelsmann. With two wins towards Milan and Barca in the Champions League, Bayern have one foot in the spherical of 16. The second spherical of the cup will probably be held towards Augsburg. The league hole (at the moment 5 factors in the Union, three factors in Dortmund) is categorized as home catch-up.
Kahn stated: “Thank God we are nonetheless at the starting of the season and we’ve got the energy to return to the high anytime. Where we belong, specifically at the desk.
