Nagelsmann praises de Ligt and Mane

Julian Nagelsmann praised Matthijs de Ligt and Sadio Mane after they marked their Bayern Munich debuts by scoring in a 6-2 rout of DC United.

Matthijs de Ligt and Sadio Mane did not take long to open their Bayern Munich account in a hammering of Wayne Rooney’s DC United side.

De Ligt scored with a sweet volley less than two minutes after coming on as a half-time substitute at Audi Field on Wednesday after Mane had opened the scoring from the penalty spot early on.

Netherlands defender De Ligt was only on the field for 25 minutes before he was withdrawn by Nagelsmann.

Still, the Bayern head coach allayed concerns that his new recruit from Juventus may have sustained an injury.

Mane, signed from Liverpool last month, also set up a goal for Serge Gnabry before Nagelsmann sent out a totally different side for the second half.

Nagelsmann was pleased the impact his new signings made and allayed concerns over De Ligt’s fitness ahead of a friendly against Manchester City in Green Bay on Saturday.

He said: “Both players have made a good start.

“Matthijs scored a brilliant goal with his left foot. I saw his impressive passing with his left foot in training today, and now this brilliant finish as well.”

Nagelsmann added of De Ligt’s withdrawal:

“He’s not got an injury. Nothing unusual happened. I think he’ll be fit again tomorrow and will be able to play on Saturday.”

Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui also caught the eye on their debuts.

With the former providing an assist for Thomas Muller to complete the scoring.

Nagelsmann said: “Both have done really well, especially in training.

“The final ball from Ryan was brilliant. He’s big, but he’s very quick on his feet. He played a great pass to Thomas.”
