Lothar Matthäus: Don't think that Nagelsmann wobbles
Record national player Lothar Matthäus does not see the job of coach Julian Nagelsmann at Bayern Munich as endangered.
Record national player Lothar Matthäus sees the coach's job Julian Nagelsman not considered endangered at FC Bayern Munich.
"I neither believe that Julian Nagelsmann is shaking, nor that one can, for example, Thomas Tuchel grapples. That would also be the next admission of guilt after being so convinced of this coach," said the 61-year-old on Monday in his Sky column. After his separation from Chelsea, Tuchel is without a club.
"Nagelsmann was not given a five-year contract for nothing and paid a lot of money for him. That is the longest contract term that a coach has ever had in Munich received and that's why everyone will try to get out of this situation together," said Matthäus. Nagelsmann came for a record fee from RB Leipzig. His contract in Munich runs until June 30, 2026.
"Yes, it's definitely the most difficult phase in the young career of this great coach and I still think he'll turn things around and draw the right conclusions," said Matthew over the 35 year old. "Julian Nagelsmann is still the right coach for Bayern Munich."

It is "nice that Oliver Kahn has his back right after the bankruptcy at FC Augsburg and the catastrophic series of four games that were not won in a row. That was exactly the right thing and also what Julian now needs from the club," said Matthäus out.
"I don't think he lost the locker room, that the team is playing against him or that they want to get rid of him. I rather think that chances and performance are currently being dealt with a little negligently. It may have started with that the players were allowed to fly to Ibiza after last season's bankruptcy in Mainz," said Matthäus. "And the parallel to this now is that you were a little distracted by the outstanding start to the season."
The former Bayern star is critical of the performance of the professionals. If you try to "win gently", then it's not enough for any opponent, said Matthäus.
