Nagelsmann agrees Kimmich and criticizes himself

Joshua Kimmich denounced the attitude and tension of his team after 2: 4 defeat in Bochum. His coach Julian Nagelsmann found it good, “if such a thing comes from the team”. If Kimmich expressed himself so, then “there is a spark truth behind, that should be a teaching”.

An idea is not on

Less good, Nagelsmann found his own tactical idea, “Of course, I also criticize myself, if the idea has not been top,” he admitted after the game at the “Sky” microph1. “Normal I have to change earlier,” Nagelsmann annoyed. He did not do it at first, since the human alternatives appeared to defensively.

For the second half, the coach then corrected his initial idea and solved the four-chain with the change Corentin Tolisso for Dayot Upamecano, with which the record champion started, again.

Nagelsmann was not loud in the cabin: “You do not have to be pure as a coach, everyone has to notice that it was too little.” Although the second half then was “a bit better”, his team would have had to meet “earlier, to get something else,” said Nagelsmann – and so Robert Lewandowski’s hit in minute 75 was only the one to the 2: 4 final score.
