Bayern Munich’s manager shades Juventus over De Ligt’s fitness

July 25, 2022 - 10:30 am

Bayern Munich manager, Julian Nagelsmann, appeared to aim a sly dig at Juventus over the fitness of Matthijs de Ligt.

The Germans have just signed the defender from Juve, and he was already a part of the Bianconeri group in the preseason before the move happened.

He will continue his preparation for the new campaign with them, and he was reportedly exhausted after his first training session with his new club.

Juve is one of the biggest clubs in the world, so their fitness standard is high because their players need to be in the best shape to compete in various competitions.

However, in a recent interview, Nagelsmann appears to suggest that the standards are higher at his club, and De Ligt has never trained under such intensity.

“I spoke to him after training and he said the session was his hardest in four years. It was hard, but it wasn’t that hard. Just normal for Dr. Broich,” Nagelsmann told reporters, as quoted by Football Italia.

“He didn’t play so many minutes last season and I’ve heard in Italy it’s then not easy to stay fit.”

Juve FC Says

Nagelsmann is entitled to his opinion, but we have the right standard of training.

All managers have their focus in training, and their fitness requirements also differ.

What we have under Max Allegri is good enough and has won multiple trophies for us. It doesn’t matter if Bayern’s training is more intense as long as ours brings results.

    This report is funny because I have heard that Italy has some of the hardest and most intense training in Europe. It’s been said to be the most intense, actually. These slight digs are really starting to annoy me. De ligt has always had weight problems. It’s a known fact. He doesn’t train to the best of his abilities and always comes back overweight. Do you actually think Mr.Siuuuu would have stayed at Juve for three years if their training regime was not at par. Mr. Angels man should focus on his own team and league. Instead of making unfounded comments about Italian football. Total disrespect by both player and coach. And by the way morons, HE ONLY PLAYED AT JUVE THREE YEARS. THAT MEANS YOU INSULTED AJAX TOO.

    Fine, I’ll keep in mind what Herr NAGELSMANN said. And I hope BAYERN MUNICH are drawn against JUVENTUS FC at some stage in this season;s CHAMPS. Going by what HERR NAGELSMANN said his team should outrun , outplay and beat JUVENTUS FC soundly over the two legs. WE’LL see HERR NAGELSMAN!

    These HERRs are always like that, especially when it comes to ITALY and ITALIAN football……..super arrogant and SAUCY , and bad losers ( just think KLOPP). And yet, most times they cross Italy’s path they end up with PIE IN FACE…….haha.

    And EVEN Antonio CONTE has had something to say about the ARROGANCE of BAYERN and HERRs NAGELSMAN, KAHN and SALIHANMDZIC ( shame on the latter, he should know better).

    Conte says Bayern have been ‘a bit disrespectful’ with Kane comments

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Unsurprisingly, Tottenham coach Antonio Conte has been irked by Bayern Munich’s comments about Harry Kane. The Tottenham and England striker would be a ready-made replacement for Robert Lewandowski but being five years younger at 28, he’d be sure to cost a lot more than the 50m euros (£42.6m) Barcelona paid Bayern to sign the Poland striker earlier this month.

    “The situation at Tottenham is very clear, the plan is very clear with the club,” said Conte. “Harry is a part of the project. He is a very important part of the project and, yes, [they’re] only rumours.

    “At the same time, I repeat I don’t like to speak about players from another club. If I want to do something I go to speak to the club, not through the media.

    “I think maybe it’s a bit disrespectful for the other club. This is my way. This is my way to face the situation with other players.”

    I thought when we signed De Ligt, I thought he would naturally take the batin from Giorgio Chiellini. We saw glimpses of his ability, mostly last season, but, he seemed to fall short, gave decisive penalties to the opposition, scored own goals, shirked challenges, that led to goals. So I hope he is happy at Bayern & wish him well. We need to focus on out new defence & hope Bremer, Gatti, Bonnuci, form a bond and a wall for our team. I am so saddened & frustrated to hear, Pogba, is already injured & will miss the start of the season, we have waited 6 years & this has happened.
