RB Leipzig want a fee from Bayern Munich for assistant coach

But don't worry Bayern fans! This fee won’t be as much as the astronomical 20M paid for Julian Nagelsmann.

Bayern Munich paid a record fee for a manager, when they spent €20M on Julian Nagelsmann, the new DFB manager, Hansi Flick’s, replacement. After confirming his arrival in Munich, Nagelsmann stated he wouldn’t take any other member of RB Leipzig staff over to Bavaria with him, apart from the video analyst Benjamin Gluck.

Now, however, that could change. Bild are reporting that Nagelsmann’s assistant coach in Leipzig, Xaver Zembrod may follow the young manager to Bayern. It is said that Leipzig would require around €200,000 in compensation in order for such a transfer to occur.

BFW Analysis

It would probably be good for Nagelsmann to bring Zembrod in. Bayern have recently lost much of their first team coaching staff (Hermann Gerland, Miroslav Klose etc...) so replacements are needed, and who better than coaches that have already worked with Nagelsmann in recent years.

Furthermore, €200,000 is not such a big sum in the grand scheme of things — the club plays a few players a larger amount in their weekly salaries! A good assistant is worth far more to a club of Bayern’s standing than such a meagre fee. If Nagelsmann really wants his man, the club should just pay the compensation and bring him over.
