Now even Germany’s tennis star Alexander Zverev has criticized the bosses of FC Bayern. The reason: the dismissal of coach Julian Nagelsmann.
“I would have had more patience. Even if Thomas Tuchel is one of the best coaches in the world: I don’t know how to fire Julian Nagelsmann immediately, even though you’re still in three competitions,” said Zverev on the sidelines of the current event in Munich BMW Open to RTL/ntv.
The 25-year-old joined a large group of people who had been critical of the actions of those responsible for Bayern in the past few days, including CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.
“I found it all a bit hectic at FC Bayern in the last few weeks,” added Zverev, who is expected in the stadium on Wednesday evening for FCB’s quarter-final second leg against Manchester City.
Zverev also spoke about Sadio Mané’s attack on Leroy Sané. “Violence is never part of it. But as an athlete, I think it’s necessary to have a tough conversation with each other after a 0: 3. I think that can also bring the team closer together,” said the man from Hamburg.
