It is important that we recognize the big clubs and Bayern Munich is no exception. Despite a hot start to this season, the Rekordmeister is taking the league. After 3 initial victories, the Bavarian club has just tied three draws (Borussia Mönchengladbach 1-1, Union Berlin 1-1 and VfB Stuttgart 2-2) until this Saturday. On the Augsburg lawn, Bayern Munich could never find a solution and lost 1-0. A first defeat of the season that was very painful and proved the offensive pains of the Bavarians. They are fifth, five points behind surprise leaders, Union Berlin. If he had not been in danger at home, the leaders of the German club would not have waited long and the pressure had clearly increased around Julian Nagelsmann, as sports director Hasan Salihamidzic stated last week: “The coach must know how to rotate and his team to play. I’m angry because what we proposed today is not enough. I for the first time this season. Because of ourselves. If you are ahead on the scoreboard and make the score worse, you have to give everything in the last ten minutes.
Getting a 2-0 success against FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich was reassuring even though everything was not perfect before the end fell in their ways. Already disputed at the end of last season especially the elimination of the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Villarreal and more questionable choices, Julian Nagelsmann is again at the center of discussions. Under contract until June 2026, the technician also seems more angry after the recent defeat against Augsburg: “I am not targeting any player now. The recent negative trend is not good. Many things have to change. I’ll think about it a lot, and then we’ll see how things go from here. I will think about this situation. We haven’t won in four games. I’m a little worried. We missed a few chances and scored very few. We can’t win like that in the Bundesliga. We have problems against strong teams. Now there are no more excuses, we need victories. “
A secret clause
It is clear that victory is the key word that must circulate in the Bavarian locker room, because the press across the Rhine scratched the technician who went through Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. Kicker in particular explains that: “The critical voices of the team are increasingly penetrating the outside world.” Which means that the players started to doubt the German technician. Oliver Kahn who visited during Oktoberfest tried to calm the fire: “We are not dealing with other coaches now, we are completely convinced of Julian.” However, a shadow hangs over Julian Nagelsmann and it is Thomas Tuchel. The 49-year-old German technician who is free for 12 days and his dismissal from Chelsea is a suitable candidate for the Bavarians. He also came close to going to Bavaria in 2018 before finally going to PSG, Bayern Munich fell to Niko Kovac.
The desire of the leaders of the German club for several years, Thomas Tuchel especially Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic appreciated the new strong men of the club as possessed. PICTURE. Besides, the German media also mentioned a deadline for Julian Nagelsmann to reverse the negative trend. Opposing on Friday September 30 to Leverkusen in the Bundesliga and on Tuesday October to Plzen in the Champions League, Bayern Munich will travel to Dortmund on October 8. Relegated by three points from the Marsupials, the Rekordmeister will not see his first opponent to fly. However, a secret clause in the coach’s contract complicates matters accordingly Sports Image. Thus, it provides that at the end of each period of Julian Nagelsmann’s contract the compensation decreases, but that once the period leaves, the two parties can freely agree on the amount. Which means Bayern Munich will probably have to keep their hands in their pockets and be consistent. Under threat, Julian Nagelsmann will at least have a golden parachute if the next few weeks continue to turn sour.
