Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann had a lot of reasons to be happy when making the move home to Bavaria for this season.

Sure, he was taking over a squad ripe with talent and capable of European glory, but maybe more importantly, Nagelsmann did not have to worry about defending Robert Lewandowski any more.

Nagelsmann recently sat down with Tz and talked through how Lewandowski’s game has evolved over the years.

“He has adapted his style of play. In Dortmund times, he was not to be broken, he was incredibly stable. Now he plays along, is between the lines and incredibly difficult to grab. It’s all about the collective with him,” Nagelsmann told Tz. “He has an incredible dynamic when he goes in on crosses. I’m glad that I don’t have to talk about him anymore, but can talk to him. It’s much more pleasant than the other way around.”

Lewandowski put all of that on display on Saturday against SC Freiburg and surely Nagelsmann was more than happy to be on the Polish Hitman’s side.
