FC Bayern, News: Nagelsmann expert speaks of “panic reaction”

In an interview with sports1 Julian Nagelsmann’s former youth coach Ernst Tanner spoke of a “panic reaction” from Bayern when it came to the 35-year-old’s dismissal. He could not “reproach the Bayern bosses because they make their decisions to the best of their knowledge and belief and in the interests of their club,” explained the 49-year-old, who once looked after Nagelsmann at the Löwen and is now sports director at Philadelphia Union. However, he criticized the communication of the Bayern bosses: “At least from the outside, Julian’s release looks like quite a panic action.”

The assertion by Hasan Salihamidzic and Co that the 2-1 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen led to a rethink in the club is “of course a blatant contradiction” to the previously declared “Nagelsmann long-term project”, emphasized Tanner: “Long-term projects are not achieved through individual results ended, but when developments and trends become apparent that pose an existential threat to the club.” In addition, Nagelsmann’s relationship with “many and above all important players” was “apparently intact”.

In view of the difficult circumstances with the departure of Robert Lewandowski and Niklas Süle and the Winter World Championships in Qatar, Tanner called for more understanding for the fluctuations in performance: “These are the bare facts and it was also clear that a season against this background would not go completely smoothly .”

He sees Nagelsmann’s coaching position in the Premier League “as the next and logical step,” said Tanner. “I dare to doubt whether it has to be Tottenham in all haste and haste. I would advise him to take a break first, to reflect and on no account to jump too quickly into the next shark tank.” In Germany, Nagelsmann “has now, despite his experienced everything at such a young age and I don’t know to what extent it still appeals to him.”

FC Bayern, News: Nagelsmann’s move to Tottenham Hotspur is apparently not an issue

Julian Nagelsmann, who was released by FC Bayern Munich, apparently has no interest in taking over the coaching position at Tottenham Hotspur in the short term. That reports the Picture-Newspaper.

Bayern surprisingly parted ways with the 35-year-old last week and presented Thomas Tuchel as his successor. Just a few days ago, the Spurs coach Antonio Conte was fired, which led to the rumors about Nagelsmann and Tottenham picking up speed again: Loud TheTimes the club wanted to start talks with Nagelsmann immediately.

A job with the Londoners is not an issue for the ousted Bayern coach. Loud Picture wants to let his expulsion sink in and analyze it before accepting another coaching job. He is also being talked about in the media as a potential successor to Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

Cristian Stellini will coach Tottenham until further notice after being Conte’s assistant. Spurs are currently fourth in the Premier League but have pursuers Newcastle United (two points and two games fewer) on their heels.

FC Bayern, rumour: Assistant coach at Chelsea wants to work with Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel had already spoken of wanting to work with Anthony Barry in addition to Arno Michels and Zsolt when he was introduced. The 36-year-old was part of Tuchel’s coaching staff at Chelsea and is currently still an assistant coach at the Blues. “We hope that Anthony Barry will also be there, but he’s still at Chelsea at the moment,” said Tuchel.

As the Picture reports, Barry also wants to come to Munich and has already submitted his change request to those responsible. A request from FC Bayern should already be available. Negotiations are currently underway with Chelsea about a fee for Barry.

The change is complicated by the fact that Chelsea coach Graham Potter Barry is said to want to keep. It is also possible that Bayern could face the Blues in the Champions League semi-finals if they beat Manchester City in their quarter-finals and Chelsea beat Real Madrid. The DailyTelegraph reported a few days ago that London was not happy that Bayern had made their interest in Barry public.

In Barry’s favour, alongside his work at Chelsea, he is also the assistant coach of the Portuguese national team. There he was already in charge of FCB defender João Cancelo, who is currently on loan from City.

FC Bayern, rumor: That’s how it went between Nagelsmann and Gravenberch

Ryan Gravenberch is one of the possible winners of the coaching change at Bayern. Under Julian Nagelsmann, the new signing from Ajax Amsterdam was mostly left out and recently played almost no role at all.

sports1 now wants to know why the relationship between the two has recently continued to deteriorate. Nagelsmann is said to have been dissatisfied with the defensive performance of his Dutch six. In the half-time break of the test match against RB Salzburg in January (4: 4), the coach is said to have folded his player in the cabin in public.

Since then, the 20-year-old hasn’t played more than 90 minutes and is said to have thought about leaving early. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic is said to have ruled out a change in the summer. Liverpool FC are said to be interested in Gravenberch.

FC Bayern, rumor: FC Barcelona wants to loan João Cancelo

FC Barcelona’s alleged interest in João Cancelo is not new, but depends on whether Bayern will exercise his €70m purchase option in the summer – and on the Catalans’ finances themselves.

As the Sports reported the Catalans want to reach out to Cancelo but a purchase is out of the question. Manchester City are said to be charging a €20m loan fee.
