After picking up his second win of the Bundesliga season, Bayern Munich trainer Julian Nagelsmann, spoke to the press (as captured by Tz) about two of the standout players from today’s match, Davie Selke’s shoe tying ability, and a bet from his childhood.
Robert Lewandowski was back in the lineup after taking a break in the mid-week cup match. No surprise, he came right back with a vintage performance and scored a hat trick. Nagelsmann had the following to say about Lewy’s performance, “He’s a player who is so incredibly good between the lines. He’s not a classic penalty area player. He’s very variable in his degree, he always wants to score goals. Lewy also listens and tries to implement a lot of things, he is also ready for a discussion. I don’t have to do shooting training with him anymore.”
Jamal Musiala — who had a great performance mid-week — was given the starting nod by Nagelsmann. Musiala scored his first league goal of the season. Of his performance, Nagelsmann said, “He’s offensively incredible quality, you see that less and less. He needs this carefree. The biggest job for me as a coach is that he never loses it. Jamal is incredibly humble, he defended much better today - he has incredible potential.”
The press also asked Nagelsmann about one of Hertha’s players, Davie Selke, namely his long, drawn out shoe-tying session. All that he said was, “I just thought it must have been a treacherous knot...” He was also asked about a bet that he has with former schoolmate and former Bundesliga player, Christian Träsch, “We sat next to each other at school. At some point, just for fun, I said to him that he would have to buy my child an Audi A3 by 2032 if I win the Champions League — and vice versa, of course. When I was in the semi-finals with RB Leipzig last year, he was shaking badly.”
