The German newspaper “Bild” said that former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann will succeed his compatriot Hansi Flick as head of the technical staff of the German national team, less than 9 months before Germany hosts the 2024 European Nations Cup.
The newspaper indicated that the details of the contract have not yet been finalized, but Nagelsmann’s salary will be approximately 400,000 euros per month until the end of “Euro 2024.”
At the age of only 36, Nagelsmann is preparing to coach a national team suffering from a crisis, after he dismissed a coach for the first time in its history, when he dismissed Flick on September 10, the day after the harsh defeat in a friendly match against Japan 1-4 after a series of disastrous results (lost 4). Of 5 matches).
Rudi Voller, the former international striker and current sporting director of the local football federation, temporarily led the German national team to a 2-1 friendly win over France about a week ago.

Germany will host the European Cup finals next summer, with an opening match on June 14 at the Allianz Arena in Munich, and the final in Berlin on July 14.
Nagelsmann arrives on a mission to save the host country, to be a new replacement for Flick after he had previously succeeded him as coach of the Bavarian club in the summer of 2021, before he was dismissed in March 2023, even though Bayern was competing on 3 fronts (the league and cup locally, and the Champions League continentally).
Nagelsmann won the 2021-2022 German League title with Bayern, but was eliminated from the Champions League (2022 edition) by Spain’s Villarreal in the quarter-finals.
