FC Bayern Munich – Markus Babbel shoots against Julian Nagelsmann: “Childish and stupid”

Markus Babbel, long-time player at FC Bayern Munich, has in the ran Bundesliga web show pulled from the leather against ex-FCB coach Julian Nagelsmann.

“I didn’t have the feeling that he wanted to learn more. He said that he is the way he is – and if you don’t like it, he has to take the consequences. That’s stupid. You have to as a Bayern Munich coach try to learn something new every day,” said the 50-year-old.

Babbel “just shook his head” about many things. He noticed “that Bayern Munich is still a size too big for Julian Nagelsmann at the moment. He’s just too childish,” said Babbel.

Today’s coach, who has been without a job since the beginning of 2020, was particularly bothered by Nagelsmann’s short trip to the Zillertal: “What does a coach do after things aren’t going so well and you’ve just come home with a defeat, skiing? That surprised me. And then Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic are supposed to go to the Zillertal and visit him? Where are we going from there? When I heard that, it almost knocked me off the couch.”

Babbel also took a clear position in the dispute between Lothar Matthäus and those responsible for Bayern. “I thought Oliver Kahn was world class. That’s how you know FC Bayern,” said the 1996 European champion regarding the battle of words between Kahn and Matthäus on Saturday sky. “It’s this mia san mia. The club is attacked and – no matter who it is – they shoot back! I thought it was great how he got out of hand and fought back.”

In any case, Babbel doesn’t see that the comfortable atmosphere at FC Bayern, as claimed by Matthäus, has turned into the opposite. “This cozy atmosphere has never existed at FC Bayern. It’s a highly professional football club. It’s all about performance. And if that doesn’t happen, there are tough decisions. FC Bayern have always been like that. I don’t know, what Lothar understands by Mia san mia,” said Babbel.
