Nagelsmann confidante probably favorite for post as goalkeeping coach

At FC Bayern, a confidant of coach Julian Nagelsmann is apparently the favorite for the open post as goalkeeping coach. how sky and the table football report, Michaelrechner, currently working for TSG Hoffenheim and the Turkish national team, could succeed Toni Tapalovic, with whom the collaboration ended.

After the separation from Tapalovic, Tom Starke took over on an interim basis, and Bayern are currently looking for a permanent successor. Computer knows Nagelsmann from his own time at Hoffenheim (136 games together). Talks are said to have already taken place with the 42-year-old, who has been in charge of the professional keeper at TSG since 2015, and he is considered a preferred candidate.

Nagelsmann wanted to bring his own goalkeeping coach to Munich when he took office in the summer of 2021, but Tapalovic kept his job, mainly because of his close relationship with Manuel Neuer. A year and a half later, the paths separated due to the lack of trust between Nagelsmann and Tapalovic. “Coexistence never came about in the way we responsible people imagine it to be,” said Nagelsmann.

Computer, who also enjoys a very good reputation in promoting young talent, has a contract in Hoffenheim that is valid beyond the end of the season, so a fee would be due.
