Kimmich and Goretzka rebel at Bayern amid club chaos. the firing of Julian Nagelsmann from Bayern Munich doesn’t seem to have been kindly received by all of the club’s heavy hitters. During the international match against Peru, Bayern’s German players were questioned, and despite Kimmich and Goretzka’s best efforts to handle the delicate issue diplomatically, they couldn’t help but lob a few jabs at the club’s top brass.
When asked by a ZDF reporter if Nagselsmann had lost the dressing room, Kimmich replied, “Absolutely not.” “That occurred because we didn’t succeed sufficiently and win enough games. Of course, we continue to compete in every competition. We weren’t playing well enough, especially in the league, it was evident. In the past ten games, we have only triumphed in five. However, the coach was still in the locker room. I’ve experienced a number of managerial changes, but this one wasn’t anticipated despite our unhappiness, he said.
Goretzka is reluctant to disobey his superiors.
Kimmich’s center-midfield partner Leon Goretzka continued, “It would be foolish of me to disagree with my boss. I can only speak for myself when I say that there was no animosity between Julian and me. I’m not sure if that applied to the other players, but it’s obvious that having someone present one day and having them leave the next comes as a shock to everyone.

Given the importance they both have on the team, both players have spoken up to express their views, highlighting the potential time bomb that is currently present. In an interview with Sport1, Bayern’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, turned the spotlight away from the players before retaliating himself, saying, “Of course, it was a difficult choice because we had a wonderful relationship with Julian. They (Kimmich and Goretzka) would answer “yes” if you asked them if we had a top-tier team and coach, but the level of play wasn’t there. The performances lacked quality. They understand that.
“Does Nagelsmann exhibit a lack of leadership? It was his mannerism.
The Munich executive revealed to Sport1 that there had been a coach-related issue. “Does Nagelsmann exhibit a lack of leadership? His fashion was that. Naturally, there were issues, and there were some disciplinary problems. I am aware that the choice was unpopular, but Bayern Munich was forced to make it. We cannot alter the entire crew. Despite having an excellent coach, the performance levels weren’t what we desired. Both Julian and I are dissatisfied. But we must perform our duties and responsibilities. We require a few months. We won’t talk in person, for sure. Being able to look each other in the eyes is crucial to me.
