Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez has been thoroughly impressed by new coach Julian Nagelsmann.

“He’s a coach who knows the world of football. He knows how to get on with the players and how to manage players. The most important thing for a coach is knowing how to manage the group. When you arrive at a club like Bayern Munich where all the players are important and have won titles, this ability to manage the group is very important. He has done that very well since the beginning,” Hernandez told Bundesliga.com.

Hernandez’s acknowledgement that Nagelsmann has picked up where Hansi Flick left off in terms of people management is encouraging. Hernandez also said that Nagelsmann is varying up his training sessions to keep things fresh.

“It’s true that the training sessions with Hansi Flick were different. We started with a classic warm up and then passing exercises. Whereas now, the exercises are more specific and no two weeks are the same. The exercises we do are determined by the match we have that weekend. It’s up to us to make sure we can adapt to the new exercises so that we’re ready for the game,” Hernandez said.
