Bayern Munich caves and pays extra for Julian Nagelsmann’s assistants

Looks like Brazzo and co. were left with no choice but to acquiesce to Leipzig’s demands.

Earlier today Sport Bild (via Abendzeitung) issued a report stating that Bayern Munich would end up paying a fee to sign Julian Nagelsmann’s assistants from RB Leipzig. The amount was said to be in the lower six-figure range, probably around 200k euros as previously reported. Per the report, Xaver Zembrod and Dino Toppmöller were set to be bought out of their contracts and come to Munich.

Now, Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg added an update stating the deal has been completed:

This outcome was almost inevitable, given that most of the existing coaching staff at Bayern left alongside Hansi Flick. Nagelsmann can hardly coach the club himself, after all. Still, the act of paying a fee will definitely gnaw at the Bayern bosses, who have already paid Leipzig a record amount for securing the Nagelsmann.

Meanwhile, the future of Hansi Flick’s assistant Danny Rohl still remains up in the air. Highly rated in Germany, Rohl apparently could end up following Flick to the Germany job. However, nothing has been settled yet. Per the Sport Bild report, talks are underway between the Bavarians and the DFB regarding Rohl’s future.

As for the rest of the coaching staff, Benjamin Glück (video analyst), Toni Tapalovic (goalkeeping coach), and Holger Broich (fitness coach) will all remain at Bayern. It’s good to see that at least some folks are sticking around, so Nagelsmann won’t have to work with exclusively new faces next season.
