Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann has a lot of quirks, but one that probably annoys his wife the most is his propensity for talking in his sleep.

Nagelsmann, it seems, is prone to get caught calling out the names of his players while he is snoozing.

“Sometimes when I’m sleeping after a game I call out the names of my players. My wife once told me that. Sometimes it wakes her up in the night,” Nagelsmann told 51 magazine (as captured by Sport Bild).

Well...it could be worse a lot, I suppose.
