The Germanschaft dies They face a miserable preparation period for next year’s European Championship in their country. The recent training defeats to Poland (1-0) and Colombia (0-2) and the humiliating defeat at home to Japan (1-4) were particularly worrying. It cost Flick the head, who has been leading the group since 2021.
With sporting director Rudi Völler temporarily on the bench, Germany won 2-1 over France last week. It is up to Nagelsmann to continue this cycle.
“It’s very special to be the coach of the national team during your country’s final run. This is something that only happens once every few years,” Nagelsmann said on Friday during his appointment.
“The most important thing is that we are playing a great tournament. I am really looking forward to this challenge.”
Fuller is also happy with Nagelsmann’s selection. He stressed that the new national coach was always the first choice, not Van Gaal. “He is an expert in football and someone who can motivate the team. His love for the sport is amazing. He brings the whole team with him.”
Nagelsmann was Bayern Munich coach until last season. But the big German club put him aside early due to disappointing results. Nagelsmann previously played for Hoffenheim and Leipzig.
With the German national team, he brought in Sandro Wagner and Benjamin Gluck as assistants. And on October 14, the new trio, signed until next year’s European Championship, will be on the bench for the first time for the first leg in the United States.
