German soccer has chosen a 36-year-old tactician.
“Julian Nagelsmann has been appointed as the new head coach of the German national soccer team,” the German Football Association announced on its website today (July 22). Nagelsmann’s contract runs until July 2024. This means he will be in charge of the German national team until Euro 2024.
The German Football Federation (DFB) sacked head coach Hanji Flick and his coaches after the team’s shocking 1-4 home loss to Japan on Tuesday. According to the BBC, it was the first time since the introduction of the full-time managerial system in 1926 that the German Football Association had sacked a coach.
The team went on to win against France without a coach.
Germany’s new coach was Nagelsmann, born in 1987. Nagelsmann’s career is unique. His career as a player was short, but he succeeded as a coach. In his 20s, he already managed Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga. He went on to manage RB Leipzig before taking over at the prestigious Bayern Munich in July 2021. At the time, his predecessor at Bayern Munich was Flick.카지노
He was sacked by Bayern Munich in March. Since then, he has been approached by several big clubs, including Real Madrid, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, and Tottenham Hotspur.
Nagelsmann chose the German national team.
“The Euro is being held in my country (Germany). It’s special, it’s rare. By next year, Germany will be a more cohesive team,” he said.
