Leak? Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann had an extra-long halftime talk thanks to strong bladder

When you gotta gotta go...even if Leroy Sane needs to know if he should sit back instead of press.

Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann has been a tactical genius during his tenure with the Bavarians so far, but one has to wonder about his level of commitment to the squad.

In a shocking re-p-ort from Bild, Nagelsmann admitted that he typically has to cut his halftime talks short to attend to a, ahem, personal matter.

The issue?

Nagelsmann typically uses halftime to relieve himself.

That’s right! He usually has to take a leak.


Let’s hear the man, himself, talk through his normal halftime routine.

“I showed five scenes (from the match), which is actually quite a lot. More than usual; usually, it is between three and five. But they know me a bit now: I talk relatively fast. I probably spoke very quickly during the break,” said Nagelsmann in speaking on what he reviews at halftime. “And the big difference from usual was: I didn’t have to pee during those 15 minutes. That’s why I was able to get the clocked 35 seconds I usually need more quickly out.”

I think it’s time that we start to question Nagelsmann’s commitment to the squad if he can’t even strap on a pair of Depend undergarments to get through his halftime speeches!

Maybe Nagelsmann could follow the lead of Billy Madison and find himself being a trendsetter for the Bavarians:

There is no need to leave the game — or your halftime speech — to relieve yourself.

Kingsley Coman can’t check in because of gastro-intestinal issues? Well, just let it go fella... err, maybe not in that case. Maybe just head back to the bathroom for that one my guy.

Anyway, if you gotta pee...let it go free (just not on the grass at the Allianz Arena...that would require a series of investigative Grass Works posts and my Hazmat suit is at the cleaners).
