If the Bayern coach has the club’s stars against him, he often ends up badly. Niko Kovac and Carlo Ancelotti found out when they were fired.
Will Nagelsmann also finish after four league games without winning the league? It’s not far from there! Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic support the coach despite the league crisis and fifth place in the table.
But the relationship between Nagelsmann and the players is put to a great test. And according to the “SportBuild” website, after the 2:2 draw with Stuttgart, the coach called the players “a handful of chickens”. Discontent was evident after the equalizer scored at the end of the match.
As BILD found out, it was not well received by players. They were expecting more self-criticism from the coach. He replaced six players in the starting lineup and with a score of 2-1 made five substitutions and some mixed positions instead of calming down the match.
According to Belda’s sources, Nagelsmann and the Bayern management agree on the reasons for the recent failures. Poor efficiency and the attitude of the stars of the team led to poor results: 0: 1 with Augsburg, 2: 2 with Stuttgart, 1: 1 with Union and 1: 1 with Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Sadio Mane did not score in any of these matches, as well as in the Champions League victories against Inter Milan and Barcelona.
What does it look like from the team’s point of view? Even if a few players are always unhappy with their playing time and substitutes, Belda’s sources say the team’s chemistry is still good.
However, the players of the German champion are waiting for the young coach to stumble. This is Nagelsmann’s first wake-up call!
His eyesight deteriorated day by day. First in one eye. Activities in the hall, a ball hit him in the face Michau Globusch was in the hospital. Later, the vision in the other eye faded. Nevertheless, a well-deserved youth coach and teacher can still be found in the stands of the stadium in Gdynia – he comes to the matches and his friends tell him what is happening on the field. In “X-ray,” the guardian of European Championship gold medalists from years ago talks about learning a new life and putting the head at an angle so that the number of the oncoming trolley car can be seen at the station.
