The trainer expects his stars to have a completely different body tension in the non-public training session on the club premises.
“Just don’t be so sluggish in everything. That shouldn’t happen to us on Wednesday,” said Nagelsmann after the sobering 2:4 against VfL Bochum with a view to the guest appearance in Salzburg.
Poor performance was evident
Nagelsmann will take a very close look at the selection of personnel on the training ground. Because after the mistake in Bochum, the 34-year-old revealed that this had already become “a bit apparent” during training.
“We didn’t have a good final training session,” reported Nagelsmann: “We’re already a top team, but obviously we can’t get a lot of players to flip the switch. We didn’t have enough excitement.”
National player Joshua Kimmich had also criticized the attitude against the promoted team. “We can’t approach the next games like this,” warned the midfielder. Captain Manuel Neuer, Leon Goretzka and Alphonso Davies will also be absent in Salzburg.
In Europe’s premier class, the knockout phase begins this week. Bayern are the only Bundesliga club still in the competition. When it comes to international games, the Munich professionals usually show up with the highest level of motivation. In the group stage, six wins were achieved with 22:3 goals. No other team in the European War better.
