Julian Nagelsmann heads Germany

Julian Nagelsmann has been appointed as Germany’s new manager following Hansi Flick’s sacking earlier this month.

The 36-year-old left his role as Bayern Munich boss earlier this year, with Thomas Tuchel replacing him at the Allianz Arena.

Nagelsmann, who had a contract with the Bundesliga champions until 2026, has reached an agreement with both Bayern Munich and the German FA to lead the national team until the upcoming European Championships in Germany next summer.

Flick, who took over in August 2021 after Joachim Low, his former boss from 2006 to 2014, had left, managed to secure 12 victories out of 25 matches during his tenure.

The 58-year-old oversaw eight consecutive wins at the start of his reign but at the Qatar 2022 World Cup Germany failed to get out of Group E after losing to Japan, drawing with Spain and beating Costa Rica.

Oman and Peru are the only other nations Flick’s side had beaten in the past 12 months.
