Munich (AP) – Ralf Rangnick is convinced that coach Julian Nagelsmann will overcome the crisis at Bayern Munich.
“He proved last year and at the beginning of the season that he can not only lead the team, but also let them play exciting football ,” said the Austrian national coach in an interview with “Bild”. Rangnick brought Nagelsmann from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim to the Saxons when he was sports director at RB Leipzig.
The 64-year-old also assumes that Bayern under Nagelsmann will win at least two titles this season. “Last year it was the championship title, so there was a feeling of dissatisfaction because there had to be at least two at Bayern. I believe Julian is capable of that this year – champion and cup winner,” said Rangnick. It is important that the gap in the table should not be too large. With regard to the Champions League victory, he did not want to make a prediction, but he also has a lot of confidence in the premier class “if they continue like this”.
In the Bundesliga , FC Bayern has not won in four games, is currently only fifth in the table and five points behind leaders Union Berlin. In the Champions League, on the other hand, the German record champions are on course after two wins against Inter Milan and FC Barcelona.
