Managing director Oliver Mintzlaff of RB Leipzig does not expect coach Julian Nagelsmann to leave soon. The 33-year-old gave him “not the impression that he wanted to pack his bags tomorrow,” said Mintzlaff Sports picture:
“He has a lot of creative freedom with us and knows that he can develop here. It is no wonder that there is interest in him,” said Mintzlaff of his coach.
Concrete talks with Nagelsmann about an extension of the contract, which runs until 2023, have not yet taken place. “We are only in the second year of our contract and we are very happy to have him,” said Mintzlaff, who will host the record champions Bayern Munich for a groundbreaking top game with Leipzig next Saturday (6.30 p.m. in the LIVETICKER).
“We already showed at 3: 3 in the first leg that we can meet them on an equal footing. With seven wins and one draw we now have a stable run. Now we want to top it off,” said Mintzlaff.
It makes him “proud” to still have a chance to win the title in the league and in the cup and to create tension in the league: “I want to get the most out of it. We’re not getting cold feet in the crucial phase of the season either – we’ll fight until End for everything. “
