Bayern has appointed a new manager starting from next season as they officially announce the current RB Leipzig Coach Julian Nagelsmann as successor to departing Hansi Flick.
As per Bild and Kicker, Nagelsmann has signed a five-year deal with the club which will keep him till 2026 at the Bavarian giants, and RB Leipzig will be getting a record €25 million including bonuses in compensation.
It is a world record fee paid by a club to sign a manager from another club which explains all about his revered talent. The previous set record was back in 2011 when Chelsea paid €16 million to bring the then Highly-rated and young Andre Villas-Boas from Porto FC.
Nagelsmann himself confirmed through the Bayern’s club website, he also gave the fact that he would also be bringing assistant managers Benjamin Glück and Timmo Harding with him to Bayern from Leipzig and also promised that he will not raid Leipzig.
“Benjamin Glück and Timmo Hardung came to Leipzig with me from Hoffenheim. They will accompany me to Munich. It’s been discussed with Oliver [Mintzlaff]. Everything else then costs another €30 million,” he said.
The club president expressed his delight at acquiring the gem of football coaches in Julian Nagelsmann and thanked Hansi Flick for his services and commitment to Bayern.
“Julian Nagelsmann represents a new generation of coaches. Despite his young age, he already has an impressive CV. We are convinced that with Julian Nagelsmann, we can continue the magnificent successes of recent years.
“I would like to express my thanks to Hansi Flick on behalf of FC Bayern. He took over our team at a difficult time in 2019 and went on to win six trophies, with the seventh hopefully to follow. He will always have a place in FC Bayern’s history books. We wish him all the best for his future.” said club president Herbert Hainer
Nagelsmann arrives in Munich as one of the most highly-rated young football coaches on planet earth. The 33-year-old arrived at the german footballing scenario back in 2016 and has quickly risen to become one of the hottest managerial prospects, first rescuing Hoffenheim from relegation before leading them to the Champions League for the first time and then taking over RB Leipzig with whom he reached the Champions League semi-final.
It was a no-brainer for the German coach as He hails from a small town close to Munich, and grew up a Bayern fan. Nagelsmann also played for local rival 1860 Munchen as a teenager. He even owns a house near the Bavaria capital where his family has been living during his stint at Leipzig.
He is known for his implementation of his different and varied training methods and approaches which along with his leadership skills and motivation brought him and his previous club huge both structurally and on-field.
And the most important thing is Nagelsmann has improved many players positionally and tactically under his supervision. Werner, Sabitzer, etc are a few of the examples he considers his main task to improve the performance of his players rather than being involved in transfer decisions, it will keep him away from transfer politics at the Bavarian club.
German coaches such as Tuchel and Klopp have revolutionized the game, they improve players and are known for bringing the best out of available talent and are idols of Nagelsmann. Tuchel’s PSG stint soured the german fans as the head coach cannot exhibit his coaching talents amidst the politics and Big ego clashes.
Bayern is historically and culturally a very big club and with position comes responsibilities and pressure to deliver trophies, which Nagelsmann hasn’t exactly experienced at his previous gigs. It will be interesting to see how he dwells at the massive club and how Bayern approaches the transfer market as they are now on the verge of a massive overhaul.
