Nagelsmann still ‘spoiled for choice’ at Bayern

Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann is “not worried” despite losing star striker Robert Lewandowski.

The 33-year-old scored 50 goals last season – the most of all players in Europe’s top five leagues – but pushed for a transfer away from the Allianz Arena with one year remaining on his deal and finally got his wish on Saturday as Barcelona secured his signature.

The total fee will reportedly be € 50 million, including add-ons.

But Julian Nagelsmann is not concerned about being able to replace the potent talisman.

He told BR24:

“Robert Lewandowski had a great eight years at Bayern. So it’s a big challenge to replace him.

“I’m not worried right now, we are very well-equipped offensively, and I’m still spoiled for choice.

“We have a possibility of building FC Bayern without a striker that can reliably score 40 goals.

“It’s an interesting task for my coaching staff and me, as well as for [sporting director] Hasan Salihamidzic and [CEO] Oliver Kahn.”

Nagelsmann still 'spoiled for choice' at Bayern

Bayern has already signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool, while midfielder Ryan Gravenberch and right-back Noussair Mazraoui have also recently joined from Ajax.

After Serge Gnabry signed a new deal with the Bundesliga champions on Saturday.

Julian Nagelsmann still has several forward options at his disposal.

Newcomer Sadio Mane played several games through the middle of the attack for Liverpool last season.

In contrast, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Joshua Zirkzee, who scored 18 goals in 47 games on loan at Anderlecht last season, also remain at the club.

I think Bayern may not sign a number 9 this season.

“With Sadio Mane, we signed a player who played a lot as centre-forward for Liverpool last season, who is a different type of player to Lewy, not a classic striker,” Julian Nagelsmann added.

“But we also have a lot of personnel to play with two centre-forwards.”
