Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann addressed the media and dropped some thoughts on several hot topics — including how he plans to rotate his wingers.

With Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, and Jamal Musiala all performing at a high level, sitting any of them down is not an easy call.

“It is actually difficult. We are happy that everyone is fit. They are all in good shape. I don’t always have a purely sporting justification. Of course, you also look at what suits the respective opponent,” said Nagelsmann (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia). “The players are all smart and know that we have to rotate from time to time. Everyone understands that, even though they would rather play. The decision is actually difficult to make at the moment because everyone is in a good form.”

The performance of the squad’s wingers has helped power the squad’s offense to unprecedented heights.

“Of course, I don’t prefer a 5-2 to a 5-0, but maybe it’s better than a 1-0. I love celebrating the goals — if you can celebrate more often, that’s nice too. I love attacking football, but with a good connection with defense and stability,” said Nagelsmann.
