The German coach has become the great revelation of the Bundesliga. The technician of Leipzig, 32, has confessed in an interview in Independent which in the summer of 2018 ruled out joining the coach of the whites. Zidane he had left the merengue set and white discipline offered him the position when he directed the Hoffenheimbut the German refused and Florentine signed to Lopetegui.
Nagelsmann He has told exclusively what his first feelings were when he heard this news. “It's normal that if the Real Madrid He calls you, you think, at first I was surprised, I weighed him and I was not comfortable with the decision to go there. I want to improve and if you go to Real Madrid immediately, there is no time to improve as a coach. ” (This way Zidane will handle the rotations until the end of the season)
The technician was aware that he needed to gain more experience before getting to work to train a team the size of the Real Madrid, a charge also for which many end up worn out before so much. “You don't have the opportunity to become better since you have to be the best. Right now I am not the best, but I admit that I want to be one of the best in the future. If you go to Real Madrid or at Barcelona, fans, the media and decision makers don't give you time to become that. They just want to win every game, titles, win the Champions League… If you don't win, you can't argue that you are still young and that you are developing. In the world of football it is not easy to plan a race, because it is very unpredictable, but you have to try ”
Nagelsmann He prefers to have patience and bet initially on projects that are not as ambitious as white discipline could be. “The main thing is to take the right steps, not the biggest steps. The Real Madrid it's probably one of the highest steps that can be taken, so I thought ‘do you turn 31, go to Real and from there to where?” The German coach finished.
