Julian Nagelsmann has been on the sidelines at FC Bayern since the start of the season. In eleven competitive games, the 34-year-old led the record champions to nine wins and thus to a successful start to the season. Now the trainer has commented on various personal details that are currently being traded on Säbener Strasse in the Munich ‘Abendzeitung’.
Florian Wirtz (18) and Karim Adeyemi (19), for example, have been linked to a future move to FCB in recent weeks. Nagelsmann shows his enthusiasm for both players. “Florian Wirtz is without a doubt an outstanding player, a great talent”, summarizes the Bayern coach and adds: “I hope that he stays that clear, then the national team will have a lot of fun with him – as well as with Jamal Musiala and Karim Adeyemi.”
While Wirtz and Adeyemi are currently playing for other clubs, Nagelsmann can already influence the development of Musiala. “It is our job to bring him to a top level”, the young trainer makes himself responsible. He also gives the offensive player the prospect of more playing time. “It’s always interesting to get him off the bench because he can make a difference. But he will also get back to work from the beginning “he says of the 18-year-old.
Extension of Süle & Gnabry
Whether FC Bayern extends the expiring contract of Niklas Süle (26) also depends on “The market situation” off, so Nagelsmann. The coach explains that it has to work for both sides. Another important question is “Whether he wants to extend the contract or not”. There is great interest in Süle. English clubs in particular have the massive central defender on the list. ‘Sport1’ confirms the ‘Bild’ information that it is Newcastle United’s turn.
Serge Gnabry (26) has a much better chance of staying longer. The winger is reportedly about to be extended in Munich. Nagelsmann would be very happy “If Serge Gnabry hopefully extends his contract”. According to ‘Sport1’ there will be no official announcement this week. However, the extension of the contract is considered certain.
