Bayern Munich’s victory in Paris on Tuesday (0-1) only offered Julian Nagelsmann a short respite from consultants in Germany. On Saturday, the behavior of the much criticized 35-year-old coach was notably pointed out by Lothar Matthaüs: “I expect a Bayern coach to control himself. The club must summon him. The reason for this tackle from the former captain of the German selection? From the 8th minute of the Bundesliga match lost by the Bavarians in Mönchengladbach (3-2), Dayot Upamecano was severely sent off for a borderline contact on his compatriot Alassane Pléa, who spun alone on goal.
The decision of referee Tobias Welz revolted the former coach of Leipzig, in a meeting marked by the goals of the French Marcus Thuram (3-1, 84th) and Mathys Tel (3-2, 90th + 3). “Is he kidding me or what? “, packed Julian Nagelsmann on the edge of the field, before he asked Tobias Welz for an explanation after the match.
“I definitely went too far”
“My god, my god, what a bunch of couch potatoes! he said as he left the referees’ locker room. Suffice to say that the Bayern coach was ready to go into the mixed zone, where he punctuated his work: “No one can make me believe that it is worth an expulsion. It’s a shitty decision.”
Aware of his hot verbal excesses, Julian Nagelsmann split a message on social networks: “Emotions belong to sport but I must apologize for the choice of my words against the referees. I definitely went too far.” Before facing Losc this Sunday (1 p.m.), Christophe Galtier’s PSG once again has proof that the situation at Bayern Munich (despite any provisional leader in the championship) is barely more serene than in Paris.
