Julian Nagelsmann Confirmed as Germany’s New Head Coach for Euro 2024: Details and Salary Revealed

Julian Nagelsmann to Replace Hansi Flick as Head of Germany’s Coaching Staff

Bild newspaper has confirmed that former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann will replace his compatriot Hansi Flick as head of Germany’s coaching staff less than nine months before Germany hosts the European Cup.

Nagelsmann’s Contract Details

The German newspaper indicated in a report on Tuesday that details of the contract have not yet been finalized, but Nagelsmann’s salary will be approximately 400,000 euros per month until the end of the 2024 European Cup.

Germany in Crisis

At thirty-six, Nagelsmann is preparing to coach his country in crisis after he sacked a coach for the first time in its history, ditching Flick on September 10, the day after a heavy 4-1 defeat to Japan following a series of disastrous results (he lost four out of five matches) led to former international striker and current local federation sporting director Rudi Völler temporarily taking over technical duties to lead Germany to a 2-1 friendly win over France.

European Cup Hosts

Germany will host the European Cup final next summer, with the opening match taking place on 14 June at the Allianz Arena in Munich and the final in Berlin on 14 July.

Nagelsmann’s Mission

Nagelsmann arrives on a mission to save his host nation to become Flick’s new replacement after he previously succeeded him as Bayern Munich coach in the summer of 2021 before being sacked in March 2023, although Bayern struggled on three fronts (local league and cup and Champions League).

Nagelsmann’s Previous Achievements

Nagelsmann won the 2021–22 German league title with Bayern but was knocked out of the Champions League by Spain’s Villarreal in the quarter-finals.
