Bayern Munich: Will Julian Nagelsmann help a Supercup bankruptcy? – Soccer

Julian Nagelsmann (34) has to ask himself this question today: What would actually be better for him?

► Winning the Supercup in Dortmund, winning your first competitive game with FC Bayern and taking your first title right away?

► Or to lose? That would help him get the reinforcements he longed for.

The Bayern coach is facing a problem: The Munich squad is thinly staffed for the upcoming triple burden with league, cup and Champions League.

Nagelsmann is said to have already indicated internally that he sees a need for improvement. In public he says diplomatically: “We will continue to scour the transfer market, whether something makes sense or not.”

Midfielder Marcel Sabitzer (27 / Leipzig) and winger Amine Adli (21 / Toulouse) are considered candidates.

Nevertheless, the bosses have so far stuck to their motto: New players only if additional departures flush transfer money into the cash register. So far, however, they remain seated on their sales candidates (Tolisso, Sarr, Süle).

Will the bosses’ transfer credo still apply if BVB dispatches Bayern today like Frankfurt did on Saturday at 5-2 in the league?

But it would not be the first time that Bayern recognized a BVB victory as a warning signal. When Borussia won the double in 2012, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (65) and Uli Hoeneß (69) put the switch on attack. Nine championships in a row followed. But the two are now retired.

Will Oliver Kahn (52) and Hasan Salihamidzic (44) react just as wisely?
