Julian Nagelsmann was prone to wide criticism prior Barca clash in the Champions League

Bayern Munich's poor performance in the German Bundesliga has led to many criticisms of coach Julian Nagelsmann, while some media even went beyond suggesting his dismissal. The clouds descended on the Allianz Arena in more ways than one on Saturday afternoon. As the heavens opened, FC Bayern conceded a last-minute equalizer to draw 2-2 with VfB Stuttgart. Although back on top of the Bundesliga - overnight at least - the result just didn't cut it in the FCB camp. It was the club's third successive league draw, after all. Bild, the German tabloid newspaper published by Axel Springer SE, reported that things inside the Bayern dressing room are not well, and the players believe that he should take more responsibility for those conflicts. “The pressure is a subjective thing. I will approach the week exactly as I would have if we had won: we will train, we will analyze the opponent and we will try to find a good idea for Barcelona,” Nagelsmann told the media. Nagelsmann came across as relaxed about the situation, but Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic was a little more concerned after the Stuttgart draw. We have to improve one way or another.” “It was too little today. We have to go up two gears, even three against Barcelona.” It goes without saying that this Bayern side is still more than capable of putting Barcelona to the sword. Standards at Bayern Munich have been so high in recent years, that even a short slump causes intense speculation for them. This will however be Barcelona’s first big test of the season and there is no telling how they will cope. Nevertheless, Bayern Munich wins FC Barcelona, as the standards at Bayern Munich have been very high in recent years.

Tuchel names reasons for Chelsea's loss to Southampton in a stinging assessment

German coach Thomas Tuchel commented on his side's 'soft defending' following Chelsea's loss to Southampton at St Mary's in the fifth round of the English Premier League. The Blues fell to a 2-1 defeat despite opening the scoring and did not cover themselves in glory for either Romeo Lavia or Adam Armstrong's strike. The Blues boss said: "Obviously we're not tough enough to win these matches at the moment, away. It was the same story at Leeds. At Leeds, the problem was that we did not score in the first 20-25 minutes, and they pushed us off balance in two minutes with two goals. We could not find any answers. We thought we at least had answered in the first few minutes of the second half. Today, we scored, so obviously, everything was okay, but one set-piece again. One sloppy defending again. Then we are off balance, and today we did not react to it, we were lucky not to concede a third goal. We were not tough enough as a team to react or push it over the line for us." He went on to add: "Soft, soft, soft defending. What stops that? Pure mentality, stop it by pure mentality. Spot it with defending intelligently. There is no superiority for the opponent, there is no need to give shots away, and there is no need. Just toughen up. As a team, show a different mentality. It's my assessment today; I don't like to talk about it normally because you cannot prove it with data, the body position, or the tactical position in the field. It's like this. Both goals are cheap goals, soft goals, and should not happen if you expect to win a Premier League match on an evening in an away stadium." "We try to win games and the way we d
