RB Leipzig: Not Bayern, not the BVB - RBL could be the laughing third
Bundesliga: Not Bayern, not BVB: RB Leipzig could become the laughing third
Everyone talks about FC Bayern and Borussia Dortmund when it comes to the German championship. But RB Leipzig could be the laughing third under Julian Nagelsmann and get the title. VIP News lists three reasons.
The Bundesliga duel between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich seems to be open before the start of the season. What most do not consider: RB Leipzig will make a duel from the duel - and could be thanks to Julian Nagelsmann in the end even the laughing third. But why does RB Leipzig benefit so much from the former Hoffenheim coach?
1. Tactical Maestro
Julian Nagelsmann is known as an absolute tactical fox. With his offensive play system, which is animated by attacking full-backs, the 31-year-old could already surprise or defeat various top clubs. Even coach greats like Pep Guardiola bow to the new RB coach.
"Julian Nagelsmann is so young and Hoffenheim is getting better and better, and he'll have a lot of success in his career," said the Catalan star coach on the sidelines of the Champions League tie between Manchester City and TSG Hoffenheim last year.
The performance of the native Landsbergers is again to be considered from another angle, taking into account that Hoffenheim had very well a good troop available, but probably with the quality of the RB Elf is not comparable. Nevertheless: Nagelsmann took over the TSG in the winter of 2016 - and led the Kraichgauer first in the Champions League qualification (off against eventual finalists FC Liverpool) and a year later in the group stage of the premier class.
2. Unstillable will to win
Nagelsmann is extremely ambitious and a born winner, who is not afraid to communicate this clearly and clearly. Before the start of the elapsed Bundesliga season, when the majority was still thinking about which team could attack the overpowering series champion from Munich at all, surprised the former Hoffenheim coach: "I'm also happy for a coronation I would be the last year I like to know that this is not easy, but I always strive for the maximum and the maximum is the championship title! "
With these words, the 31-year-old also seems to have impressed Ralf Rangnick. "He said before this season that he wants to become a champion with Hoffenheim," Rangnick said. "Then I assume that he would like to be happy with us." Finally, RB Leipzig has a "slightly better player than Hoffenheim," said the 60-year-old.
RB Leipzig do not mind, in the next season "one or two places better cut off" than in this season (18/19). Rangnick assumes that Nagelsmann will "express himself again", Rangnick told Sport1.
3. More independence for Nagelsmann
Nagelsmann will have a free hand in Leipzig. Before other coaches had to come to terms with Ralf Rangnick, the ex-Hoffenheimer can control the events completely according to his taste. Consultation with Rangnick is for the 31-year-old a Kann, not a must.
That confirmed the RB football boss: "The coach is the boss in the cabin, I'll try to stand aside with my advice when I'm in demand," said Rangnick, announcing, "I will not sit on the bench and I'll try to stay more distance from the team than Ralph Hasenhüttl did, and I can see how close and distance it takes. "
This Nagelsmann is the unconditional boss in Leipzig - which may also enjoy the privilege to consult the expert Ralf Rangnick in case of problems. RB Leipzig has positioned itself strongly - that should be on the screen. Especially Bayern and BVB.
