Along with having lesser players for pre-season training due to Euro 2020, Gold Cup, and Copa America, Bayern Munich will also have a significant change in the coaching setup. Julian Nagelsmann will be taking over as head coach after Hansi Flick was appointed the new German National team coach.

According to SportBild, Nagelsmann has started preparations for the new season. The German manager was spotted at Sabner Strasse this week as he begins planning for pre-season training. This report also insists that Nagelsmann has been in touch with several senior players and granted Robert Lewandowski an extended leave to return completely energised.

The pre-season training will begin from the second week of July. However, the initial part of the training camp will have only youngsters and few senior players that had no tournament football during summer. Nagelsmann will be looking at youngsters with a view of adding them to the first team.

The German media has reported this month that Christopher Scott is one of the players from the youth team that could have a big role to play in the first team. Scott will be reportedly considered as an internal solution to the right-back position.

Nagelsmann will finally manage at his boyhood club after impressive spells at Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. Bayern has been consistently linked with him in the past few seasons, but he took time and eventually worked step by step to reach this level.

The young German manager is known for playing an attractive style of football. Moreover, he also knows how to optimise the quality of every player whether it is a young talent or a veteran player. Even though it is not an ideal pre-season training, but it will be exciting to see which youngsters Nagelsmann will include in his plans for the first team.

Since Die Roten currently has no players at Euro 2020 after the elimination of Germany and France this week, Nagelsmann will get to work with senior players sooner than he expected. It is going to be an exciting phase in Rekordmiester’s recent history as an astute tactician will take over as the first-team coach.

Meanwhile, the club hierarchy will be looking to strengthen the squad in the transfer window. The club has already completed the transfers of Dayot Upamecano and Omar Richards. Die Roten still has work to do in the market as they reportedly want to sign a right-back and winger. There is also scope for improvement in the midfield department. The next few weeks are likely to be busy for the new head coach and the club’s player recruiting committee.
