Julian Nagelsmann under pressure as Bayern Munich stars lay telling complaints on the manager

Following Bayern Munich’s stuttering start to the Bundesliga campaign, Julian Nagelsmann has come under intense pressure as a result of the players’ complaints about three key issues.

Bayern Munich has only lost once so far this season, but the team has had a history of underwhelming and, quite frankly, losing focus toward the end of games.

With Union Berlin and Freiburg both ahead of Bayern in the standings after their subpar start, Julian Nagelsmann has recently come under additional criticism.

However, they have had a fantastic start to their Champions League campaign and are now atop their group after winning their first three games.

Bayern will play Victoria Plzen on Wednesday night in an effort to maintain their perfect record in Europe thus far this year.

Bayern, though, is having trouble in the league, and the players have apparently complained to Nagelsmann about three key difficulties.

SportBILD claims that the Bayern team is dissatisfied with Nagelsmann’s handling of game-related events and the way he frequently fails to effectively respond to them.

Bayern’s Leon Goretska and Leroy Sane scored goals for Bayern in Der Klassiker, which was held to a 2-2 draw between the German heavyweights and Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

However, Kingsley Coman was dismissed in the last seconds of the match, just after Dortmund’s Anthony Modeste had equalized.

While Bayern Munich still sits above Dortmund, losing more points in the Bundesliga doesn’t assist their momentum to catch Union, as Nagelsmann remarked after the game.

The players also complained about Nagelsmann’s “inexplicable substitutions” and his failure to make the proper “tactical switches” mid-game.

On their Saturday trip to Signal Iduna Park, Nagelsmann used all five substitutions, with attacking midfielder Marcel Sabitzer and left back Alfonso Davies being replaced at the break.

Joshua Kimmich and Coman both entered the game, and as neither of them is a left-back, the choice to replace Davies seemed odd on paper.

Nagelsmann altered his formation, nevertheless, to make his team’s attack more aggressive and front-footed.

They added a second goal early in the second half, but Youssoufa Moukoko and Modeste’s goals would cause them to lose a two-goal lead.

The Bayern team’s final complaint is that Nagelsmann is allegedly running a “one-man show” and making rash decisions on the sidelines.

The Bayern team, who don’t like his demeanor on the sidelines, are concerned about his impulsiveness.

Nagelsmann’s management approach leverages strong emotions to inspire the team members on a weekly basis.

The former RB Leipzig coach is believed to be highly authoritarian and enjoys setting an example for his players.

Nagelsmann played around with his formation and the roles in his system throughout the previous season. The majority of Bayern Munich supporters felt that winning the Bundesliga alone was not sufficient.

It remains to be seen if fans will be willing to endure another season where winning several trophies is seriously in jeopardy.
