Julian Nagelsmann will officially start working as Bayern Munich coach in July. We know that he is a phenomenal coach and a brilliant strategist. But there are more elements to a successful team, one of them is keeping club workers happy.

Recently, a story broke out where we can get a glimpse of how Nagelsmann is strengthening the bond between the players and employees. According to Bild, Julian Nagelsmann left a letter and a unique gift for Jesse Marsch, the new RB Leipzig coach. As Bild found out, the gift is a so-called ‘wish box’.

The thing about it is that club’s employees could submit a wish for up to 1000 euros and whenever a player had to pay a substantial fine, one wish would be drawn out of the box.

Nagelsmann also made an additional rule — whenever his team won three matches in a row, Julian would fulfill three wishes out of his own pocket. The wishes ranged from washing machines to a small vacation, and Leipzig’s employees had something to look forward to whenever Leipzig played well.

This made Nagelsmann very popular at his old club and he will probably continue this tradition at Bayern Munich.
