Bayern Munich underwent a coaching change this summer as Julian Nagelsmann arrived from RB Leipzig. The German Champions decided to pay a world-record fee for Nagelsmann to succeed Hansi Flick in the head coach role.
Die Roten had to look for a head coach after Flick expressed his wish to end a successful tenure in April. Flick wanted to succeed Joachim Low at the German National Team after winning every possible trophy during 18 months in Bavaria. The German manager’s wish was granted by the club as they agreed to a deal with Julian Nagelsmann.
Nagelsmann was more than keen on this role since he has grown up as a Bayern fan. The German manager has been linked with Die Roten on several occasions, but he took step by step approach in his coaching career to be ready for such a big job.
Die Roten’s decision to appoint Nagelsmann has garnered praise from the club’s former defender Markus Babbel. While talking to NetBet, Babbel admitted that Nagelsmann is the right profile of coach for the club. He believes that Nagelsmann will be able to improve players and help the club to compete with minimal transfers at a time when the pandemic has severely impacted Die Roten’s finances.
“He is one of the biggest coaches in Germany, he’s still quite young, but he’s been coaching for over 10 years now.In Germany the teams are struggling, Bayern lost £150 million, and they’ve said they can’t do any big transfers.”
“They must be clever and bring in young talent and a coach who can work with this talent. Julian Nagelsmann is perfect because he has done this in the past, and he’s created a lot of players in national team players. Bayern must develop players so he’s the right man for the job.”

Babbel has made a valid point regarding the development of young players. After the departures of David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and Javi Martinez this summer, the average age of the squad has further decreased. There is a good number of players at Rekordmeister that lie in the age group 24-27. The likes of Joshua Kimmich, Lucas Hernandez, Niklas Sule, Serge Gnabry, and Leon Goretzka are entering the peak of their career, so they are going to get even better.
Moreover, the current first-team squad also boasts players like Jamal Musiala and Alphonso Davies. Both players have just started their careers, so more is expected from them in the coming years. Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane also have the best years of their careers ahead of them.
In the stints at Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, Nagelsmann has done wonders with young players. He was also good at extracting the best out of senior players. The German manager can be relied upon to find solutions in the squad, giving Die Roten breathing space to see out this pandemic affected transfer market.

Julian Nagelsmann surely has enough experience and a history of improving players. The next challenge for him is to get the best out of players and win big trophies. Die Roten has won nine Bundesliga titles in a row, so Nagelsmann will be expected to maintain this dominance and challenge for Champions League. Nevertheless, there is enough evidence to be excited about Nagelsmann’s tenure at Die Roten.
