Uli Hoeness, the former president of Bayern Munich, has hinted that the club’s decision to dismiss the manager last month was influenced by Julian Nagelsmann’s ski trip.
Bayern Munich fired Nagelsmann as their head coach while the international window was ongoing, and they appointed Thomas Tuchel, the former Chelsea boss, to replace him.
Hoeness, the club’s long-time former president, criticized Nagelsmann for going on a ski vacation after their Bundesliga loss to Leverkusen.
Nagelsmann was fired despite good result he achieved
He told told Kicker: “Nagelsmann should not have gone on a skiing holiday after the defeat in Leverkusen. If he had stayed in Munich, they would have met him and spoken to him Monday or Tuesday. And who knows what would have happened then?”
Bayern CEO, Oliver Kahn, stated that due to Nagelsmann’s vacation, they were unable to schedule a meeting to discuss his role at the club.
Nevertheless, he firmly stated that Nagelsmann was informed about his departure before the media reports were published.
Speculations about the reasons for his firing are circulating, with some suggesting a disagreement between him and Sadio Mane, who was signed during the summer.
