FC Bayern Munich: Nagelsmann visits the volunteer fire brigade – Munich

Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann visited fire station 4 in Munich after his fire brigade sayings. “My statement about the volunteer fire brigade was poorly worded. I never wanted to discredit the volunteer fire brigade or volunteer helpers,” wrote the coach of the German record champions on Monday evening on social networks.

Photos show him in a lively conversation in the fire station. “Socially committed people are role models and are essential for a functioning society,” the refined Nagelsmann continued. The 34-year-old said on Thursday during the press conference for the top game against Borussia Dortmund: “We’re not with the volunteer fire brigade in Südgiesing, we’re with FC Bayern Munich.”

Nagelsmann had spoken about the motivation of his team. The coach then said on Saturday on the Sky TV channel shortly before the Bundesliga game that he wanted to express that his players were employed – and in that sense not playing voluntarily. “I was only concerned with the word ‘voluntary’,” said Nagelsmann. “I’m the last person to discredit volunteering or the fire department. I apologize to anyone who got it the wrong way.” The work and motivation of the volunteer fire brigade is “more than honorable, we need that in the country,” said Nagelsmann.

During Nagelsmann’s visit, the volunteer fire brigade simulated an operation in which people were rescued from a burning building. Nagelsmann also climbed 30 meters with the turntable ladder vehicle.

The FCB master coach also presented the emergency services with a Bayern jersey with the emergency number 112. “Of course we accept your apologies and appreciate that you took the time for us on site,” said Claudius Blank, city fire officer and commander of the Munich volunteer fire brigade, in the direction of Nagelsmann.
