Julian Nagelsmann has been coach at Hoffenheim for a year now. At only 28, he took over the team when they were second from bottom and has them competing for Champions League now. Kick off’s Thomas Berthold asked: “Why are you so self-confident?"
Two of German football's brightest young coaching prospects met in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday evening as Schalke hosted Hoffenheim. A poor defensive display from Hoffenheim saw Tedesco take the plaudits.
For quite some time, Julian Nagelsmann was considered Bayern Munich’s coach-in-waiting. Another defeat does his candidacy no good but Serge Gnabry's strong display against his parent club shows he belongs at the top.
Bayern Munich are looking to make a statement of intent when they face Hoffenheim on Saturday — on and off the field. There have also been developments in the search for a long-term successor to Jupp Heynckes.
Bayern did what they do when they host Hamburg, while Werder Bremen may have hammered the final nail in Cologne's coffin. Elsewhere, Wolfsburg coach Bruno Labbadia sets an unwanted record.
