Later bustling rumors linking Bayern Munich with Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann. Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti responded calmly.
Nagelsmann, 30, stole his attention since handling Hoffenheim in February 2016. He successfully dodged Hoffenheim from the brink of relegation before leading them to finish in the Champions League zone for the first time in club history.
In addition, Nagelsmann managed to defeat his Bayern Ancelotti twice in a row. Hoffenheim’s last victory came at the weekend with a score of 2-0.
In the midst of Bayern’s less convincing performance since being tackled by Ancelotti, Nagelsmann then emerged as a successor candidate. Speculation gets hotter after Nagelsmann revealed his family was building a house in Munich and soon moved there.
“I think it’s perfectly natural that a young manager, a good manager like Julian has a dream to train a great team,” the Italian coach said as quoted by Soccer Way.
“Moreover, he is German, so it’s perfectly natural and last season I told him ‘maybe in the future’ I wish him the best he can to become a manager at a top club. ‘
Ancelotti is still under contract in Bavaria until 2019. However, not a few who believe that Ancelotti might be leaving before his contract expired because of Bayern appearance is less okay.
