Again no victory for FC Bayern. The pressure on coach Julian Nagelsmann is growing. Dealing with some of his stars becomes a challenge for the coach. A very important game is coming up.
Munich – Julian Nagelsmann sees FC Bayern Munich in a “result crisis” after the third 1-1 draw in the Bundesliga, as in the fall.
The 35-year-old coach didn’t seem unsettled after the next game without a win this year, even though important knockout game weeks are now starting with the DFB Cup round of 16 next Wednesday at Mainz 05.
The big round of 16 first leg in the Champions League at Paris Saint-Germain with the world stars Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé is already in two weeks.
“You’re always under pressure at Bayern, even if you win and play badly,” said Nagelsmann at the press conference about his mood. “It’s not life pressure now. I would just like to win, like everyone else here. The pressure is manageable for me, don’t worry.”

But the pressure on the coach seems to be greater than he himself admits. “Sport1” warns the Bayern coach that he is “threatening to lose the dressing room”. With the following justification: “Footballers, especially at FC Bayern, are very sensitive. They remember when their coach doesn’t support them. The Gravenberch and Gnabry examples are just two of many.”
Nagelsmann had recently given the Dutchman Gravenberch the prospect of being in the starting XI, but then he was also on the bench against Frankfurt. And Gnabry was probably amazed at how much Nagelsmann discussed the footballer’s trip to a fashion show in Paris in public
Back to the sporty. When asked, Nagelsmann did not want to decide whether it was good that an all-or-nothing game was coming up in Mainz, in which there had to be a winner. “In general, I’m glad that there will definitely be no draw on Wednesday,” he said, rather annoyed by three 1-1 draws in a row this year.
Bayern boss Oliver Kahn, on the other hand, sees the cup game as a good chance to get back on the road to success. “That’s exactly what the team needs now. The knockout game in Mainz comes at just the right time. We really have to step on the gas now,” said the CEO.
