RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann will take over at Bayern Munich in July, but there have assuredly already been conversations about what Hansi Flick’s successor has in mind for the club’s roster.

Bayern Munich’s future CEO Oliver Kahn, however, said now is not exactly the right time to discuss such things.

“We shouldn’t talk about the squad yet. Respect obliges us to play the season until the end,” said Kahn in an interview with Sport Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia). “Leipzig have a cup final to play, and we want to give our coach, whom we have a lot to thank for, a worthy farewell.”

As for Nagelsmann’s goals, Kahn offered up a little bot more. When asked if Nagelsmann would be aiming to keep Bayern Munich among the top three clubs in Europe, Kahn insistent the new manager probably has even loftier expectations for his tenure in Bavaria.

“As I know him, that’s not just Julian’s ambition. It’s probably even too little for him,” Kahn said.
