Kevin Kuranyi played for TSG Hoffenheim under Julian Nagelsmann. At Sky the ex-national striker spoke about his former coach and trusts him to be successful with his future employer FC Bayern.
On July 1st, Noch-Leipzig coach Nagelsmann will follow Hansi Flick at FCB and Kuranyi is convinced of the 33-year-old’s qualities. “Even back when he joined Hoffenheim and gave his first speech in front of the team, he was already convincing. It was like before secondary school, then secondary school,” he explained.
The speeches were “very calm” and “very well thought out”. Kuranyi is sure that he will be able to use his skills to the full at Bayern: “I think that after the first few weeks and with his good speech, he will get it done very quickly.” Nagelsmann brings “so much quality that he will also be successful at Bayern Munich”.
The 39-year-old ran under Nagelsmann at TSG until 2016 before ending his career. The 52-time DFB player was previously active in the Bundesliga for VfB Stuttgart (2001-2005) and Schalke 04 (2005-2010) and scored 111 times in 276 games.
