2 Reasons Bayern Munich Probably Won't Fire Julian Nagelsmann

Julian Nagelsmann is in a complicated situation following Bayern Munich's minor performance at the start of the 2022/2023 season. However, there are a number of reasons why Nagelsmann's position is still quite safe at Bayern.

Bayern drove quite smoothly in the Champions League stage. Two games played, two wins earned. The problem is in the Bundesliga. Die Roten failed to win in the last four matches. This is an unusual result for Bayern.

Now, in week 7, Bayern are in 5th position in the Bundesliga standings. Manuel Neuer and colleagues won 12 points. They are five points behind Union Berlin at the top of the table.

Nagelsmann's situation is further complicated by reports of player dissatisfaction with the way he coaches. However, Nagelsmann may not be sacked by Bayern in the near future. What is the reason? Listen below

Long Contract and Release Clauses

Nagelsmann has a long-term contract with Bayern. Nagelsmann was picked from RB Leipzig at the start of the 2021/2022 season. At that time, Bayern had to pay 25 million euros to redeem the 35-year-old man's contract.

Bayern gave Nagelsmann a long-term contract because he was considered to have great potential. Bayern and Nagelsmann are under contract until June 2026.

In addition, there is a special clause that regulates termination of employment. Quoted from Bild, the clause became active in the second season of Nagelsmann's tenure at Bayern, which means it is active in the 2022/2023 season.

Bayern must pay the remaining contract Nagelsmann whose value is believed to be quite high. Or, they have to sit down together to get an agreed compensation value. Referring to some information, Nagelsmann earns between 8 to 9 million euros per season.

Still Early Season

Apart from poor results in the Bundesliga, there is another aspect that makes Julian Nagelsmann's position quite complicated. The former Hoffenheim coach reportedly had a bad relationship with the player. He claimed to be stubborn and reluctant to change tactics.

However, several Bayern officials have given statements about Nagelsmann's future. They have not given any indication that the 35-year-old coach will be replaced. They still believe Bayern can bounce back because it's still early in the season.

"We fully trust Julian Nagelsmann and our entire team. After the international break we will go all out again, as you know FC Bayern," said Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer.
