When looking at Bayern Munich and how it has played in the first stage of the season, Didi Hamann has come away impressed.

Not only has Julian Nagelsmann settled in nicely and worked wonders with the players on the roster — especially Leroy Sane.

“He likes to change it around, but I think that’s his preferred formation at the moment. They had a manager who was very well liked by everyone at Bayern Munich, so it’s never easy to follow somebody like that,” Hamann told FreeSuperTips (as made exclusively available to Bavarian Football Works). “But what I have to say is, Leroy Sane for the first time in years is now looking like the player he can be. (Pep) Guardiola and (Hansi) Flick didn’t manage it, but Nagelsmann looks the right fit because Sane has been brilliant the past few weeks.”

Hamann thinks Nagelsmann is able to reach players and connect in a way that produces results.

“I think Nagelsmann improves players and that improves the team which is hard to do with the talent Bayern Munich have,” said Hamann. “I think he’s done a brilliant job in such a short space of time.”
