Julian Nagelsmann is not having an easy time in his second season with Bayern. The young coach has to perform, but is already publicly criticized. Most recently, national record player Lothar Matthäus even advised the 35-year-old on “Sky” that he should be careful not to “lose the cab”. Now it is known what three major points of criticism the Bayern team has against the coach and what Nagelsmann has already changed.
FC Bayern is not going through an easy phase. In the Bundesliga, the Munich team is only third after only four wins from nine games.
Trainer Julian Nagelsmann tries to turn the tide, but has to endure public and internal criticism. “Sport Bild” has now listed three points where Nagelsmann’s team sees room for improvement.
According to the report, the first case concerns the fact that Nagelsmann has hardly reacted successfully to the game play until now. While he does extensive video analysis before the games and wants to improve his players, the impulses he gives in the games have little effect. That, for example, Edin Terzic on Saturday in the classic on the other side with tactical measures and acceptance ensured that BVB took a point against Bayern, keeps the team busy.
Nagelsmann with “One-Man-Show” at FC Bayern?
The second criticism goes in the same direction. The team is therefore critical of the coach’s substitutions and substitutions. Removing Sadio Mane, who would have reacted stubbornly in Dortmund, and including Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting had no effect.
According to the sports newspaper, the type of line-up prior to the matches is also closely monitored. As an example, “Sport Bild” mentions Jamal Musiala, who would have promised a starting eleven against Inter Milan, but then ended up on the bench. The shooting star is said to have made his disappointment clear to the protagonists.
As a final point, the report mentions the behavior of the coach on the sidelines. The fact that he now wears somewhat more muted and discreet clothing, according to him, Nagelsmann has already come across in conversations with professionals about his clothing style. But the stars are said to be concerned that Nagelsmann is reacting too impulsively and has a “predilection for the one-man show” on the sidelines, as “Sport Bild” calls it.
In addition to the points of criticism, the team has apparently also realized that the coach has already tried to make numerous improvements. Nagelsmann now has significantly more one-on-one conversations than in the previous season and involves the players more in processes.
When it came to the club’s corona strategy, which foresees significantly more intensive testing, he went to the team council to discuss the matter. The panel agreed.
