The woman who hides behind the sudden dismissal of Nagelsmann from Bayern

Bayern Munich officially announced last Friday the dismissal of Julian Nagelsmann 631 days after the young coach, only 35 years old, took over the reins of the Bavarian giant. His replacement on the Allianz Arena bench is Thomas Tuchel, without a team since he was sacked by Chelsea earlier in the season.

One of the main reasons It seemed to be losing first place days before facing Dortmund, leader of the competition, in a key game for the team’s aspirations and also that some heavyweights in the locker room were not in tune with the coach. One of those who expressed it was Gnabry, who opened the door to a possible exit. But What is this loss of confidence due to? The answer is in a woman.

The Julian Nagelsmann’s relationship with reporter Lena Wurzenberger made him lose the confidence of the Bayern Munich dressing roomas confirmed by the club legend Mark Babble.

Nagelsmann was sacked this week by the Bundesliga giants and replaced by former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel. His sacking came as a surprise to the wider football community, as he had only lost three league games this season and reached the Champions League quarter-finals.

But it seems that problems off the field are the key. Wurzenberger, who works for German sports news outlet Bild, began dating Nagelsmann last year after he split from his wife of 15 years, Verena.

And although the outlet immediately removed her from Bayern’s coverage, she became a “big problem” for the team. “Julian Nagelsmann loves a Bild reporter”, they headlined then in their own medium. “Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann has a new girlfriend. It treats of Lena Wurzenberger (30), that previously has informed on the FC Bayern for BILD and has been on vacation with him in Ibiza. BILD has learned of the new relationship and has released Lena Wurzenberger from reporting on FC Bayern with immediate effect.”they added.

Babbel, who also played for Liverpool during his playing career, assured Blick: “I know that his relationship with the Bild reporter was a big problem in the dressing room. There was a loss of confidence because some players could no longer communicate what they were thinking that they were afraid that everything would end up published in the newspaper”.

Nagelsmann and Wurzenberger were first photographed together vacationing on a yacht in Ibiza last summer and have gone public with their relationship ever since. She has been in the stands at the Allianz Arena on several occasions this season.

Following Nagelsmann’s departure, Deutsche Presse-Agentur reported that Wurzenberger will leave Bild at the end of the month. After the events, the couple had to shorten their ski trip in the Austrian Zillertal to return to Germany.
