2:09 pm: That’s it! The press conference is over. As always, Julian Nagelsmann talked a lot and loved – but then some interesting things came up.
2:08 pm: The coach on the upcoming international break: “In the last international break we had a few injured players, but you also have to see: the national coach also wants his best players on the field because he also has to win games. The players are in good health. If we want to see quality football, we have to give the players breaks.”
2:05 pm: Nagelsmann was asked again about Serge Gnabry. I no longer consciously talk to him now. I’ve known him for a long time. He’s a player who needs to be free, and he shouldn’t think too much about what he’s doing. He was allowed to make a mistake in the game. He’s a natural footballer, he’s even better when he has confidence in his body. Regardless of the situation.”
2:03 PM: Nagelsmann explains why he is so passionate about football: “I have done everything to become a professional footballer. I still love playing. I think it is very important to be passionate about what you are doing. The deodorant seller should also use deodorant from time to time.”

1:58 pm: Nagelsmann with interesting details about Niklas Süle. “I have a certain relationship with him, and I have known him since my youth. I know where its potential and where its creation sites are. He is an outstanding football player, in Eintracht Frankfurt he was a coach of ten. My coaching team and I pulled him back. With him either the hops and barley are lost, or he plays So well that you don’t have to talk to him anymore.”
1.56 pm: Bayern Munich is full again. “The whole team is of course important. There is motivation in the training, as well as from the competitors.”
1.54 m: Nagelsmann swerved a bit when he was kicking during training. “My ankles are solid, everything is fine.” Coach Kingsley Coman: “He’s fine. He’s cheerful and happy that he can get back on the field. It’s not a problem for tomorrow because we decided to train him first. You have to be careful with him so he doesn’t get any muscle injuries.”
1:51 pm: How does the coach prepare for Kiev? “We showed the team some scenes. They are the favorites in most matches in their league and they have a young team. Benfica has a very compact position, but he fails to score. Two tips always defend with.”
1:48 pm: Nagelsmann about Gnabry: “He’s a fast-build guy who always has a few illnesses. He wasn’t always used to playing every game in his career. We have to be careful about that. It’s a matter of physical constitution. It’s very important to us, and he always creates a good mood. He has a good personality. But he is also very important in terms of football and he has great end quality with both feet.”
1:47 pm: The coach on Alphonso Davies: “He always plays in different positions. We are flexible there. I don’t try to get myself stuck there.”

1.40 pm: “You’ve done very well here over the past few years. It’s always a pleasure to go into training because you get along well with the players. This can make a huge difference in important games,” Gnabry says.
1:38 pm: Gnabry about Nagelsmann: “He’s a very emotional person. We all know we don’t always have to take it personally when he’s afraid.”
1:37 pm: Gnabry stacks are deep. “Favorite to win a CL race? This is the first time I’m hearing that. There are a lot of good teams this year. We have a great atmosphere in the team and we are very hungry for success. We want to win the Champions League and have a team that we can do that with.”
1.35 m: “We have a big team and a lot of matches. You can’t play every game. It’s normal to move from one player to another. And how does Dynamo Kiev play? They are a very strong team, and we have to be ready for that.”
1:34 pm: Gnabry on Musiala: I think the English rigor helped him really well. The time I spent in England was also very important to my strength.”
1:34 pm: Having the flu no longer plays a role in Gnabry. “I’m better off,” he says.

FC Bayern: PK with Julian Nagelsmann and Serge Gnabry in the live broadcast
Since the last game against Forth was last Friday, there was a four-day break for the players – which is why the coach could also send the full squad to the race. After a superior 3-0 win over Barcelona, the next win against the Ukrainians should follow.
But the opponent has a lot of self-confidence: Dynamo Kiev is still unbeaten in the tournament and the Champions League this season. Coach Mircea Lucescu’s team challenged Benfica to a draw in the first round of the First Division. It remains to be seen if the Ukrainian champions can truly endanger Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Will Nagelsmann give his reservists a chance? He publicly counted one of them. (epp) * tz.de is a display of IPPEN.MEDIA
