From the Bayern coach’s point of view, it’s almost an optimal situation.
France stars around Koeman are back tooون
Closest to their club are Kingsley Coman, Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez and Corentin Tolisso, who had to travel home unexpectedly early with world champion France.
In the round of 16, Equipe Tricolore lost in a thrilling duel after taking a 3-1 lead on penalties against Switzerland (7:8 nE). However, for all EM drivers, there is first and foremost a three-week vacation. Eric Maxime Choupo-Moting and Alfonso Davies, who have caps for Cameroon and Canada respectively, will take this break.
At the start of the Munich team training (July 7), the new coach Nagelsmann will have to dispense with the national team. The 33-year-old is also likely to miss some players in Bayern Munich’s friendly match against Ajax Amsterdam on July 24.
Looks like Robert Lewandowski is taking a special leave
By the end of July at the latest, Nagelsmann will be able to work with the whole team – which is especially important for the new coach, in order to get to know his players and convey his game philosophy to the whole team.
Goal scorer Lewandowski, who was eliminated with Poland in the preliminary round of the European Championship, was said to have taken a special leave. As reported by Sport Bild, there was a conversation between the striker and Nagelsmann after the Polish finish. In it, the young coach promised his star a four-week vacation, it is said. This should now run through July 26.
To start the competitive match in the DFB Cup (between August 6 and 9), Nagelsmann can once again plan with the whole team.
Quite different, for example, with rival Borussia Dortmund: with Thorgan Hazard, Thomas Meunier, Axel Witsel (all Belgium), Judd Bellingham, Jadon Sancho (both England), Manuel Akanji (Switzerland) and Thomas Delaney (Denmark) seven players in Dortmund in the competition.
