Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn said that coach Julian Nagelsmann should not worry about his job despite the team’s failure to win four consecutive league matches (Bundesliga). “We don’t deal with any other coaches. We are totally convinced by Julian,” Kahn said on Sunday (September 18, 2022) during the team’s visit to the “Oktoberfest” beer festival in Munich.

Bayern Munich, the defending champion in the last ten seasons, started the league by winning three matches, but tied the next three matches before losing to Augsburg with a clean goal on Saturday. The focus was on Nagelsmann, who coached the team last year with a contract until 2026, especially in the presence of a prominent German coach currently available, Thomas Tuchel, who left Chelsea.

Kahn said things should calm down at Bayern during the international break that begins now. After that, the team will face Bayern Leverkusen, then visit Borussia Dortmund, before hosting Freiburg.

While Bayern Munich beat Inter Milan and Barcelona in the Champions League during the past two weeks, the failure to win four consecutive league matches is the longest period in which Bayern has not achieved victories in more than 20 years. The team’s 12 points in the first seven matches is the worst number of points the team has achieved in the last 12 years, knowing that Dortmund was the one who won the title in that season.

“Of course we are all unhappy and in a bad mood,” Kahn stressed. He added, “We must find the reason for the decline. I assume that with the resumption of the league matches against Leverkusen, we will attack with all our might, and we must.” He warned, “Perhaps some are starting to become convinced that Bayern can easily win the league title. But this is not the case,” adding that the club and team leaders should see: “The tools that must be mobilized so that we can quickly return to the path of success in the Bundesliga.”

Hasan Salihamidzic, a member of the board of directors for sports affairs, said that the players face problems in front of the team, which depends on physical strength. “If we don’t have discipline, passion and physical strength, we won’t be able to win. Now there are no excuses, we have to get some victories.”

The team’s striker, Thomas Muller, said the lack of winning in recent games had left the team in a state of disbelief and frustration, and Nagelsmann said he would use the international break to “think about the situation in the team and determine how things go.” “I will think about everything: about myself, the current situation, everything,” he added.
