Julian Nagelsmann has defended his tactics after the 1-1 against the TSG Hoffenheim and could not resist a small side wire against Sky expert Didi Hamann, who had not criticized the style of the Bayern coach before the game.
Hamann had questioned whether “three and a half defensive players” would be sufficient and asked the forecast that the German record champion will not win with this tactic. Like last in the Champions League at 7: 1 against RB Salzburg, Nagelsmann had set a triple chain. In the midfield Joshua Acted Kimmich as a sixth. Otherwise, he had just offensively situated.
With a four-chain Nagelsmann would have probably or badly to set four central defenders. That’s not “not all Bavaria Like,” Nagelsmann explained before the game. The grounded left-back Alphonso Davies did not stand in the squad after his heart muscle inflammation. Experiments with Omar Richards and Marcel Sabitzer in the back left were unsatisfactory in the past, which is why central defending Lucas Hernandez until the return of the Canadian is currently the first option for this position.
Nevertheless, Hamann kept right in the end, Bayern did not come beyond a draw. Nagelsmann said after the game: “I’ll discuss this with the Didi again because I find that a bit unfair to players. If you see how diligent Serge (Gnabry), King (Kingsley Coman) and Leroy (Kingsley Coman) and Leroy Sane) are. “
That caused the 34-year-old also to bother a little against the former national player. “Maybe he saw himself as a very offensive eighth and did not defend a buck,” said Nagelsmann and added, “I am a coach at Bayern Munich and I’m trying to keep consult with my players. And they have Also, the clear idea that the best staff is currently playing in order, as we play. And I’m going to d’accord. “
