RB Leipzig licks yet He lost the Federation Cup Final against Borussia Dortmund His wounds.
Especially since coach Julian Nagelsmann, who will move to Bayern after the season, is suffering defeat. “I think anyone can imagine I’m not feeling well. But it’s not about me, it’s about the club. We’ve had a second chance in three years to win the title and we have it for the second time and sometimes we’re not there,” Nagelsmann said. “It’s painful. It’s more than just anger. It’s a painful moment.”
For the 33-year-old, who has been on the sidelines in Leipzig since 2019, it was his first major final in his coaching career. The defeat is the most painful – regardless of his upcoming departure, Nagelsmann asserts. “Of course I would have liked to win the title. But regardless of whether I would leave: I would have hoped to win the title if I had been a coach in Leipzig for 28 years.”
The coach praised his team especially for the strong performance in the second half, which was characterized by a “very strong personality”. “Dortmund makes a lot from very little and we get very little from a lot. I don’t think we were worse than our opponents, not even in the first half,” this is the summary.
Nagelsmann is now playing two more Bundesliga matches with Leipzig before bidding farewell to Munich. “Of course there is a void, but we still have two difficult matches in the Bundesliga,” the coach said. “I’m not thinking about my move now.”
