Managing director Oliver Mintzlaff of RB Leipzig has rejected speculations about a possible change from coach Julian Nagelsmann to Bayern Munich.
“There are valid contracts. And that’s enough,” Mintzlaff said image-The newspaper asked whether he could forbid such a “transfer”.
Nagelsmann is tied to RB until 2023, but is considered a potential heir to Bayern coach Hansi Flick in the event that he takes over the office of national coach in the summer. The Munich sports director Hasan Salihamidzic is said to have already inquired about the availability of Nagelsmann.
The 33-year-old coach recently emphasized that he felt it was “disrespectful” to his colleagues to publicly participate in the speculation. In the discussion about the successor to Joachim Löw, who will give up his job in the summer, Flick referred to his contract, which also runs until 2023. The 56-year-old avoided a definite no to the question of whether he could become a national coach several times.
