Julian Nagelsmann confirms: Thomas Müller is missing in Dortmund

Bayern Munich may fall back on midfield boss Joshua Kimmich in the Bundesliga classic at Borussia Dortmund, but will have to do without Thomas Müller. Both professionals are “free again after their corona diseases, but with different requirements”, trainer Julian Nagelsmann said on Friday.

Although the duo has been tested, “Thomas still has some problems and cold symptoms and is not 100 percent fit. He will not train and will not be in the team,” Nagelsmann said. Kimmich, on the other hand, “felt no more symptoms and nothing. I assume he’s coming with me.” After the last training, a decision is made.

Kingsley Coman returns to the squad after being fired due to injury. “He is not a candidate from the start, but someone who can be replaced,” Nagelsmann said. Coman can “play 30, 40 minutes”.

The Bayern coach sees “a special match” in the eternal squatter, but expects the game to be “a little more controlled, a little more static” than last: “But I’m also happy when there is spectacle.”

Dortmund is emitting a “very big danger”, especially when it comes to counterattacks. In short, he is still puzzling over BVB’s approach, “you can never predict 100 percent what they are going to do,” he said of Borussia’s “base order or defense level”. He sees the fluctuations in performance in Dortmund “not so dramatic, they are playing a good season and becoming a top opponent”.

There was much praise for centre-back Dayot Upamecano, whose play Nagelsmann described as “mature”. The Bayern coach sees “Upa” as France’s strongest central defender and a seed for the national team at the World Cup.

The complete PK to read

End: Just under 16 minutes short and crispy the PK with Julian Nagelsmann. The most important information:

  • Thomas Müller is out in Dortmund because he still has complaints after the corona infection.
  • Joshua Kimmich is in the selection, but whether he will be in the starting lineup will only be decided after training.
  • Kingsley Coman is also in the selection, but is an option for 30-40 minutes.
  • Leon Goretzka is probably in the starting line-up.
  • Dayot Upamecano is currently the best central defender in France for Julian Nagelsmann.

12:16 pm: Again about Joshua Kimmich: “You have to see what makes sense after a five-day break. He was at home for five days and was not allowed to move. You have to see how the training goes. In the end we decide how it goes.”

12:15 pm: Nagelsmann about the central defenders: “It takes a while for Lucas Hernandez. The check-up didn’t look good, but there is no prognosis. Matthijs de Ligt and Dayot Upamecano have an excellent development. I will also bring Lucas with them They celebrate when they score a goal That is a good sign. Matthijs does us a lot of good. And for me Upa is a clear thing for the national team, for me he is the most stable French central defender, he only made one mistake against Borussia Mönchengladbach. has matured.”

12:13 pm: Julian Nagelsmann expects a controlled game – more than before as Dortmund “defend deeper” than before.

12:11 pm: Julian Nagelsmann on Sadio Mane: “I think he has arrived. He played well against Pilsen. I am happy when he puts his heart into it. Not everything has to go well all the time. We would be happy if he scores a goal.”

12.10 pm: Will Leon Goretzka play? “If he’s fit, he’s a player you don’t want to miss. I assume he’ll play tomorrow and continue his great performance from the Pilsen match. If he trains underground today, we’ll reconsider, but we’re not going to assume that.”

12.08 pm: Julian Nagelsmann on the importance of Jamal Musiala and Jude Bellingham: “Both have a high priority in their teams. Bellingham is now captain for the second time and has a very good season. He is a different player than Jamal, a very good boxer- to-box player. Jamal is very important to us. We are happy and satisfied to have that. He has made a lot of progress.

12.05 pm: Julian Nagelsmann on BVB: “A strong team, you can’t predict 100 percent what they will do in the starting order. Sometimes they defend high, sometimes deep against strong teams. Dortmund are playing a good season, they will be top opponents tomorrow .”

12:03 pm: Nagelsmann reports: “Kingsley Coman is fit, passed all the stress tests and is definitely ready for 30 to 40 minutes.” So no starting eleven candidate.

12:01 pm: Julian Nagelsmann immediately drops the bomb: Thomas Müller and Joshua Kimmich have both been tested free after corona infection, but “Thomas Müller is not 100 percent fit and will not drive”. Joshua Kimmich, on the other hand, is in the selection, but his assignment will be decided in the short term.
