According to consistent reports, Julian Nagelsmann is now under observation at Bayern Munich. Not only the 1-0 defeat against FC Augsburg on Saturday is viewed critically. There had already been three draws in a row for the record champions in the Bundesliga.
According to information from ‘Sport Bild’, the reigning champions have the opportunity to pull the ripcord if the results don’t improve in the short term. Nagelsmann’s contract should contain a corresponding clause. According to ‘Bild’ there is a staggering of the severance pay in the event of a premature and unilateral termination of the contract by Bayern.
With each additional year in office as head coach, Nagelsmann would collect less when he was released. The 35-year-old is tied to the German flagship club until 2026. However, this clause only applies after the second year of the contract. Before that, a dismissal would be freely negotiable and would therefore be significantly more expensive for the officials from Säbener Straße.
Most expensive coach transfer
Bayern already digged deep into their pockets when Nagelsmann signed. The trainer from RB Leipzig came to Munich for 25 million euros. The coach should earn eight to nine million euros a year. A separation would drive up the costs of the engagement again.
Backing for Nagelsmann
To date, however, CEO Oliver Kahn has left no doubt that Nagelsmann will be relied on in the long term. “We are not dealing with any other coaches now, we are totally convinced of Julian”the former goalkeeper said during the Oktoberfest.
However, if the results in the next few games are not satisfactory, the headwind for the young coach could increase further. Critical voices should already be raised from within the team. Management style and communication do not appear to be to the liking of some players, according to the reports.
