Following the sacking of former Bayern Munich manager, Hansi Flick from the Germany national team head coach position, reports circulate online that Julian Nagelsmann is set to take the reins of the Die Mannschaft.
The news, initially reported by Christian Falk of Sport Bild and subsequently confirmed by renowned transfer expert Fabrizio Romano on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, has captured the attention of football enthusiasts worldwide.
“Details being discussed on salary as he will take pay cut — Bayern are prepared to terminate Julian’s contact.”
According to Romano’s tweet, the German Football Association (DFB) is in the final stages of formalizing the agreement to appoint Julian Nagelsmann as the new head coach of the national team.
Discussions are underway regarding the terms of his contract, including a potential salary adjustment, as Nagelsmann is reportedly willing to take a pay cut. Bayern Munich, his current club, is said to be prepared to terminate his contract to facilitate this transition.
This significant development comes in the wake of the dismissal of Hansi Flick as the manager of the German national team. Flick’s tenure came to an abrupt end following a humbling 4-1 defeat to Japan in a friendly match held in Wolfsburg earlier this month.
Notably, this marked a historic moment as Flick became the first manager of the German national team to be sacked since the inception of the role in 1926.
Germany’s recent performance had raised concerns, with the team recording four losses in their last five matches under Flick’s leadership.
During his tenure, which commenced in August 2021, Flick oversaw a total of 25 matches, securing only 12 victories.
