Great Leipzig forward.

Three things about Julian Nagelsmann: He is one month younger than Lionel Messi, he is the youngest ever full-time manager in Bundesliga, he is the youngest ever manager to make UEFA Champions League knockout stage with new club RB Leipzig this season. Also three imprints Julian Nagelsmann already left on Leipzig: A camaraderie with the players, a new style of play, an elevated sense of belief and performance.

"

Julian Nagelsmann is young and modern. He comes up to us. He speaks our language.

He absolutely wanted me to stay here in the summer even though I wasn't great last year. He gave me a lot of trust. I want to repay that and that’s only possible if I perform well.”
