Four Bundesliga games in a row without a win, and for the first time in the league he did not score a goal of his own: Julian Nagelsmann is currently getting to know the downsides as head coach of FC Bayern, and was at FC in the days after the 1-0 defeat Augsburg itself at the center of criticism for the first time. Record national player Lothar Matthäus can understand the discussions about Julian Nagelsmann.

    On the “RTL” microphone, the TV expert made it clear: “Julian Nagelsmann is under just as much pressure as any other coach.” Before the tasks against Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund, FC Bayern is looking forward to the weeks of truth in order to get back on track in the Bundesliga.

    “Of course he has to deliver the results again so that he’s firmly in the saddle again. He performed in the Champions League, he’s missing a few points in the Bundesliga,” said long-time Bayern player Matthäus about the FCB head coach, whose tactics Substitutions and communication have recently been publicly questioned.

    According to the 61-year-old, the fact that FC Bayern are now going to play against Bayer Leverkusen’s Werkself, who are also in serious trouble (Friday from 8:30 p.m.), poses a certain risk for the record champions.

    “Leverkusen are also far behind in form. They are certainly not satisfied with the results so far. They were knocked out in the cup and are way down in the table, where you certainly didn’t expect them. That can be difficult for Bayern right now, who don’t ooze self-confidence,” says Matthäus, himself a seven-time German champion with Munich.

    For the world footballer from 1990 it is clear that ultimately only results will bring calm back to Säbener Straße: “Of course Bayern Munich have to score points and win again in order to stabilize Julian Nagelsmann’s place again.”
