Bayern Munich and Julian Nagelsmann have somewhat navigated through a crisis by delivering good results after the international break. The Bavarian club was on a winless run of four games in the league before players left for international duty. Despite the disappointing draw against Borussia Dortmund last weekend, Bayern has somewhat shown improvement in performances.
The wins against Bayer Leverkusen and Viktoria Plzen were encouraging as there was fluidity in the final third. Moreover, Bayern also kept clean sheets in both games. The performance against Dortmund was scratchy, but Die Roten had almost clinched the victory as Dortmund scored in the last minute of the game. Despite the result against BVB, Nagelsmann will be pleased with the team’s response after the international break.
Nagelsmann still has a fair amount of work to do in getting the team completely in line with his philosophy. According to SportBild, players are concerned about in-game management and substitutions. The players at Bayern are also concerned by Nagelsmann’s impulsive approach on the sidelines.
However, everything is not doom and gloom for Nagelsmann at Bayern. The report from SportBild insists that the German coach is getting better at man-management. He is regularly holding talks with players and defending them from outside criticism in public appearances.
Nagelsmann is a young coach, so it is not surprising to see him making mistakes. The Bavarian faithful will be hoping that he continues to learn and get better. The German coach has got great public backing from the club hierarchy, so it is up to him to make the necessary tweaks and help the team to achieve the targets for the campaign.
Julian Nagelsmann will be looking to bring players on board with his philosophy by tweaking his methods. The German coach has not been inclined towards heavy rotation across games, but he will have to find a way to get an adequate amount of playing time for squad players. Considering the jampacked schedule this season, every player in the squad will have a role to play.

A run of good results will definitely help him to fasten this process. The German champions have crucial games coming up before players leave for World Cup in November. Nagelsmann will be hoping to win all games until mid-November and solidify Die Roten’s place in all competitions. A win against Plzen will be a good way to start a winning run that could set the tone for the rest of the season.
