3 in Mainz fundamental changes at FCB

Bayern Munich’s coach Julian Nagelsmann has become fundamental after his team’s 1: 3 at 1. FSV Mainz 05 on the 32nd match day of the Bundesliga. “Are at a point where we have to change something.”

Nagelsmann criticized the lack of “basic passion” of his players in the clear and well-deserved defeat in Mainz. “It’s a bit human when you become champions. But we still wear the logo on our chests. We can’t get nine hundred percent chances against us from the first minute. That just doesn’t work”; said Nagelsmann, who was the only one from Munich to come into the mixed zone of the Mewa Arena after the game.

It is “a bit human” that “after the tenth title in a row you don’t go to the extreme in every situation. But if it seems like we have to do some service and it’s not really passionate anymore, Then there’s a point where we have to change something. That’s where we are right now.”

Nagelsmann emphasized that his warning was not only aimed at the team. “It’s also about general things. If a company has been very successful for decades, at some point it’s always time to change something a little. That’s completely normal and not bad at all,” he said, drawing the parallel to FC Bayern: “If you win seven to eight titles and become champion ten times in a row, there is a ‘break even point’ (sic!) where we have to say ‘now we have to do something differently’.”

In economics, “break-even point” is primarily used to describe the break-even point, i.e. the point at which a company makes a profit, but what Nagelsmann meant became clear from the next few sentences: “You can’t always do the same thing Every DAX company that wants to be one of the most successful knows this phenomenon,” said Nagelsmann and added: “You can’t miss this point. That’s what it’s about.”

Nagelsmann: “Shit, now we’ve missed the moment”

Nagelsmann was not so concerned about the defeat in Mainz. “You can lose a game like that today, I don’t necessarily care about the way, even if we don’t have it that often. It’s about the big picture. I’m not a reminder either. I just want us to continue on the path successfully and not at some point say: ‘Shit, now we’ve missed the moment’.”

Felix Magath, ex-Bayern coach and current trainer of the still unsaved Hertha BSC, had previously sensed distortion of competition in the relegation battle. Bayern Munich plays on the 33rd day of the Bundesliga against relegation candidates VfB Stuttgart. “You don’t know what to say about that. Bayern are champions, I don’t know if they’ve stopped playing.”

And further: “I only saw the result. I don’t know how it came about, but it’s not nice.”

Nagelsmann replied: “It’s very clever of him. I guess he doesn’t do it entirely unselfishly. He should watch the game and then he can call me. I’m not talking about Hertha’s performance now either.”
