Speaking recently to Bild (via Daily Hotspur), Falk claimed that RB Leipzig will not allow Julian Nagelsmann to join Bayern Munich this summer, as Die Roten Bullen do not want to strengthen a direct rival in the Bundesliga.
Furthermore, Falk then states that Leipzig could be open to talking with Tottenham regarding the 33-year-old, and that it is possible Nagelsmann could replace Jose Mourinho in north London this summer – if Spurs can stump up the money needed to lure him away from the Red Bull Arena.
And after Daily Hotspur relayed Falk’s update on Twitter, fans of Tottenham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing delighted at the news, however, others seemed rather more reserved by stating that they did not want to get their hopes up.
Would Nagelsmann be a good appointment for Spurs?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to Christian Falk’s Julian Nagelsmann update?
“Game-changer if true. Levy should do everything possible to make this happen. He may never get another chance to get this guy in. Pay double if you have to!”
“We’re back in business.”
“OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.”
“Do not give me hope.”
All in all, it would seem as if these Tottenham fans are delighted to hear the news regarding Nagelsmann, and considering the job the young manager has done at Leipzig thus far, guiding the team to a third-place finish in the Bundesliga last season, as well as the Champions League semi-final, it is not hard to understand why they would like to see the German take over at Spurs.
