Julian Nagelsmann (33) recently formulated the demands on the young stars of the Bundesliga runner-up in tough sentences.
The trainer from RB Leipzig: “If a youth player joins my team, he has to want to tear the world down. He has to go into the professional cabin, change, and then the lawn has to burn. Not everything has to be perfect. But I have to see the mentality. And I don’t do that for everyone. ”That’s why the club has already reacted.
Nagelsmann’s assistant trainer Moritz Volz (37) is now taking care of the integration of top talent among the professionals. Nagelsmann: “Moritz wears his hat in the junior and transitional area. He takes care of the feedback discussions with the youth players so that they not only run along, but also receive feedback. “
Volz is supposed to become a top talent turbo so that more homegrown people make the breakthrough.
In addition, the sporting leadership around Manager Markus Krösche (40), the Commercial Director Sport Florian Scholz (41) and the Technical Director Christopher Vivell (33) exchanges even more closely with the sporting management of the youth training center around Sebastian Kegel (37), Christian Streit ( 36) and Per Nilsson (38).
The first successes can already be seen. The club has the strongest U19s in years and is the clear leader with four wins from four games in the A-Juniors Bundesliga North / Northeast. And with Eric Martel (18) and Joscha Wosz (18), two young players are now regularly part of the Nagelsmann squad.
