Julian Nagelsmann sacked

Julian Nagelsmann has been sacked after two years in charge at German champions Bayern Munich. It’s hard to get my head around this, but as per transfer Guru, this is the case. The well-renowned Italian journalist confirmed this through one of his social media channels.

When Fabrizio calls it, it usually comes true, is this a mistake that could come back to haunt Bayern Munich? With The Bavarians and their way of appointing managers, usually it’s not.

Former RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim manager is seen and is still seen as not just one of the young managers in Germany, but in world football too. Last year Bayern did win the League title, but there were some hiccups along the way.

Nagelsmann’s Bayern have been brilliant this year and some quarters were daring to dream that just maybe this could be seven-heaven for Bayern Munich by winning this year’s Champions League for a seventh time.

Pre World Cup break Bayern were top of the pile and arguably strolling to another Bundesliga crown, but post-World Cup the 10-time defending champions seem to be missing a spark.

Last time out, Bayern Munich lost 2-1 to Bayern Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund now lead the Bundesliga table by a solitary point after they won 6-1 against FC Koln. I can’t help but think this has been a case of a panic reaction.

After the international break Der Klassiker, the game where Dortmund and Bayern go head to head, will have added significance to it. Just to remind you sports fans, it’s been nearly six years since Eden Terzic’s men have beat Bayern at all.

In theory, it’s still an advantage to Bayern, so why sack him now? If Nagelsmann’s Bayern lost to Dortmund, maybe that’s a little more understandable. Upon deeper understanding of the goings on in the background, several players were said to be unhappy, leading to a change of coach for Bayern Munich.

Thomas Tuchel, formerly of Borussia Dortmund has been the man touted to replace his younger compatriot.

Maybe the 51-year-old former PSG boss, who replaced then-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard can be a success like he was at Stamford Bridge. In that season I think he did win some trophy called the Champions League.
Bayern Munich fans will be hoping for the same if he’s appointed. Julian Nagelsmann, will not be short of offers for a swift return to club management.

The former Hoffenheim boss has reportedly been earmarked as the successor to what seems increasingly likely outgoing boss Antonio Conte. When we get more news on this, we will be sure to let you know.
