RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann gets upset on the sidelines during the match against Gladbach

Julian Nagelsmann of RB Leipzig relies on a learning effect from the defeat in the Fueball Bundesliga during the reunion with Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB-Pokal.

“We took a lot of things with us and discussed the content. There was enough Lsungsans-tze to score,” the coach said before the quarter-final on February 4 (6.30pm). “It’s a good way not to get into a rack stand like in the past fenf games.”

Of the four games played so far in Frankfurt, Leipzig have not yet played, most recently a 0-2 draw on 25 January. Nagelsmann underlined the importance of the game also with a view to the game at Bayern Munich on 9 February. “It’s a different competition, but there’s a connection in terms of self-deprecation and anticipation for the next game,” said the 32-year-old.

Nagelsmann does not believe that Stefan Ilsanker, who was briefly transferred to Frankfurt for secrets, is not believed. “Ilse likes to say a little bit, that goes to that. I don’t see it as a big threat,” the RB coach said. Ilsanker is not allowed to play on Tuesday, which is what Leipzig and Frankfurt have to do.

Furthermore, the ‘bungsleiter’ was involved in the discussion about the shady interpretation of the rules against Meckerer. Nagelsmann called for more common sense. “You have to distinguish between untransgaming.orgsmanlike things like swallows or time games and nervous situations,” the 32-year-old said.

Pléa was “not grossly untransgaming.orgsmanlike”

“There is a difference between emotion and unfairness. Emotions make groo and that should remain the case. You have to talk to each other well and it’s a slopor to admit mistakes.” You know this from home, Nagelsmann said: “Sometimes you have to say yes, then there is peace.”

The debate about the exemplary behaviour of football pros picked up speed at the weekend after the yellow-red card against Alassane Pléa in the match between Leipzig and Borussia Mönchengladbach. Pléa continued to gesticulate after a yellow card for groping and received a spot-kick from referee Tobias Stieler.

“I didn’t find Pléa’s lamenting grossly untransgaming.orgsmanlike, nor an indication that there is a thunderbolt in the amateur league,” Nagelsmann said.
