Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann is apparently taking his job very seriously.

Per a report from Sport Bild, as captured by Twitter account iMiaSanMia, Nagelsmann has been more than fully involved in his job ever since he started working at the club. From the first day he set foot in Säbener Straße, he has been arriving at the training ground at 7:45 in the morning, and leaving at 8 or 9 in the evening. That’s more than 12 hours, if not 13, of work!

During his long working hours at Säbener Straße, Nagelsmann has incorporated quite a few changes behind the scenes. One change is the dressing room, which apparently has a new design. Another change, and this is the big one, is that he records his team talks, which are accessible via the app “Hudl,” which the players now have to download. That way, even players who are not present during the talks can still listen to what Nagelsmann had to say. For example, the international players who were on break following Euro 2020 were all able to get a sense of Nagelsmann’s ideas through the new app.

With players like Thomas Müller and Serge Gnabry willingly giving up a few days of their vacation to return to team training early, and now that Nagelsmann’s work ethic has been discovered, it’s clear that the hard-working atmosphere at the club is quite infectious. Perhaps for good reason, too, as the season’s beginning is just around the corner, and there isn’t that much more time for Nagelsmann to get accustomed to his new team.

While it’s heartwarming to see the players and the coach work so hard, however, it might be good for them to just take a break once in a while. Believe it or not, there are more important things in life than football, and we hope that the team knows that and doesn’t run themselves into the ground.

That said, we also hope that all that hard work will pay off with a good season!
