FC Bayern won 4-2 in Wolfsburg, but after the game Manuel Neuer’s statements are still the big topic. Coach Julian Nagelsmann reacts reservedly – for him, dissonances with the captain can become a problem.

Footsteps could be heard, three people were reflected in the dark windows, then one after the other they stepped out from behind the large wall of sponsors. The first was the Wolfsburg coach Niko Kovac, closely followed by the press officer of the factory club and Julian Nagelsmann. All routine, but somehow not. Because Kovac, who had just lost 4-2 with his team, looked rather nonchalant as he took his place at the front of the podium. Springy gait, a friendly nod to everyone around, hands in jacket pockets. Julian Nagelsmann, on the other hand, looked as if he had just bitten into a lemon. An extraordinarily sour lemon.
