Julian Nagelsmann

BUNDESLIGA: BAYERN HELD AT GLADBACH

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann didn't have the best of starts in the German Bundesliga after his team could only play a score draw at the home of Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Nagelsmann and Bayern Munich are targeting a tenth straight league title this season. The Bavarian giants have won the German Bundesliga in each of the last nine seasons. The bid to win a tenth successive German Bundesliga title didn't start well following the 1-1 draw with Borussia Moenchengladbach in what was the first game of the new German Bundesliga season played on Friday night.

Borussia Moenchengladbach took the lead inside ten minutes through Alassane Plea. The French striker scored the opening goal of the new German Bundesliga season on ten minutes.

BAYERN MUNICH JOIN RACE FOR LIVERPOOL STAR

New Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann has not even officially joined the club yet but he is already making transfer moves ahead of the summer. According to reports, the manager has cited Liverpool midfielder Georgio Wijnaldum as a key transfer target whom he will try to sign in the summer following his appointment as the new manager of the German Bundesliga giants.

Nagelsmann was appointed as Bayern manager after Hansi Flick declared that this season will be his last campaign at the club after agreeing to take over the vacant managerial role at the German national team following Joachim Löw's departure announcement. Nagelsmann has now started making plans for the next season and has sighted Netherlands international midfielder Wijnaldum as his priority signing.
