Criticism? So coach Nagelsmann should rather say nothing

Internally they also have different aspirations, I am convinced, but they must communicate this to the outside world if they want to be taken seriously and arouse euphoria. Leipzig must finally win the cup this year. Very easily.

So Tedesco’s communication was at least unfortunate, but he is not alone in this.

He had to apologize to the fire brigade for his sentence “We are not with the volunteer fire brigade of Südgiesing, but with FC Bayern Munich”. He had to apologize to colleague Christian Streich for his criticism of SC Freiburg’s decision to appeal against the score of the 4-1 draw against Bayern due to a substitution error.

And the statement “There are already approaches to change, but I won’t tell them” after 1: 3 in Mainz was not smart. Of course, this ensures that there is wild speculation.

Then Nagelsmann should rather say nothing. And focus on the sportsman in the future.

He was still celebrating in November because he spoke eloquently about topics that were actually more within the purview of CEO Oliver Kahn. So I said, “Wait a minute with your hymns of praise.”

More recently, Nagelsmann also criticized his players’ trip to Ibiza following the Mainz bankruptcy, which caused a stir this week.

The Ibiza issue is not over yet. Personally, I assume Bayern will beat VfB Stuttgart at the weekend and clear up allegations that after the league they would be disappointed and distort the competition. But I must also say: if Bayern don’t win, this trip to Ibiza will fall on the tip of the club and Nagelsmann in particular. At least he didn’t ban them – maybe he should have.

Especially since this trip really makes zero point zero sense. The players are still on vacation in two weeks.

While it was a team building measure, as sporting director Hassan Salihamidzic called it, at this time it was highly questionable. Bayern are out of the cup and Champions League, champions at the start of the Bundesliga – and the team will look different next season. Why do you need a team building measure that even several players miss?

I’m curious to see which players will be there next season. It is absolutely true that both Bayern and Dortmund are with their coaches and watch the squad closely or change it. You can’t change coaches every season, you have to identify and iron out the squad’s weaknesses.
