Julian Nagelsmann will take command of the Chariot Corps.
The German Football Federation (DFB) announced on its website on Wednesday (Aug. 22) that “Nagelsmann has been appointed national team coach. He will lead the team at next year’s UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany. Nagelsmann has signed a contract until July 2024. He is the 12th national team coach in Germany’s history and succeeds Hanji Flick,” the official statement read.
DFB President Bernd Neuendorf said: “Next year’s Euros are very important for German football as a whole. We are convinced that Nagelsmann’s team will inspire our fans and that the tournament will be one of the best ever. 먹튀검증 Mr. Nagelsmann is an outstanding coach. Now we will all focus on next summer’s Euro and support Nagelsmann.”
DFB Director Rudi Feller added: “When we started the search for a national team coach, Nagelsmann was our preferred candidate. Not only is he a professional, but he has proven himself as a coach at a very young age. He can motivate and inspire the entire team. He will play an important role at the Euros next summer in his home country,” said Nagelsmann.
“We are hosting the Euros in our country. It’s something special that happens once every few decades. I have a great desire to win. We will be a tight-knit group,” and “The goal is to do well at the Euros. It’s a big challenge for me. I want to inspire with attractive football, not just results. I have a clear idea. I’m not nervous because I have confidence in the team and the coaching staff,” he said of his Euro aspirations.
For the first time in its history, Germany played the card of sacking a coach. “On the proposal of DFB President Neuendorf, the federation’s supervisory board has decided to dismiss national coach Flick and assistant coaches Markus Zorc and Danny Ruhl from their duties with immediate effect,” the DFB announced on Tuesday.
DFB President Neuendorf said: “We agreed that the national team needs a new impetus after disappointing results. We need confidence ahead of Euro 2024. It was the most difficult decision of my tenure. Because I value Coach Flick and the coaches. But the first priority to be addressed is success and the decision (to dismiss) was inevitable,” he said.
