Nagelsmann with the national team in the USA: Visit from Oliver Bierhoff

In America, it is said, many things are a little bigger than elsewhere. A national player, Ilkay Gündogan, also had this experience, but it was not one that could be described as typical for the country. The captain was rather amazed at the caliber of national coach he has to deal with recently when he arrived at the team, coming straight from Barcelona.

“It’s a bit surprising that he’s so tall,” said Gündogan on Tuesday after the first training session under the new boss. “I didn’t even notice on TV that he really has a good build.” Mind you, it was the first thing what actually occurred to him on Tuesday about Nagelsmann, if you subtracted the resolute “good” with which Gündogan opened his answer to the question about the impression.
