The official news dropped this morning and Bayern Munich has hired RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann as its next coach.
This development has been expected for days — if not weeks — but the final stages of this courtship operated at warp speed and were pretty much completed in what amounted to a little more than a day.
Nagelsmann will take over for Hansi Flick, who will go down as the best shot-term manager in the history of the club — if not global football. With six (likely seven within a few weeks) titles to his name, Flick won a sextuple last season and is well on his way to securing a Bundesliga championship for this season.
On this episode we discuss:
- The big news and how we got to this point.
- What we might see from Nagelsmann.
- Whether or not Nagelsmann will be allowed to be his own coach and use his own tactics, formation, players, etc.
