Berlin, 27 Apr (EFE).- RB Leipzig’s coach Julian Nagelsmann will join Bayern Munich this summer on a five-year contract that will make him the most expensive manager in Bundesliga history, the Bavarian club announced on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old will be paid up to 25 million euro across the five years of his deal, according to local media.
“I am convinced that FC Bayern’s sporting future will be a very successful one with Julian Nagelsmann,” the club’s next president, former goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, said in a statement.
Bayern’s president Herbert Hainer said that Nagelsmann “represents a new generation of coaches. Despite his young age, he already has an impressive CV.”
“We are convinced that with Julian Nagelsmann, we can continue the magnificent successes of recent years,” he added.
Nagelsmann replaces Hansi Flick, who recently announced that he would quit at the end of the season.
Flick led the team to a treble last season, his first in charge at the Bavarian giants.
On his maiden first-team coaching experience, Nagelsmann led Hoffenheim from battling to stay in the Bundesliga in 2016 to qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in their history in his first whole season as their coach.
In 2019, he joined RB Leipzig who he steered to European competition on two occasions, including last year’s Champions League semifinal. EFE
