Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann will join RB Leipzig in the summer - and the 31-year-old admits he's worried that his impending move could lead to more dissatisfaction among his players.
"If a player is dissatisfied and knows that the coach will no longer be there in the summer, there is always the danger that the dissatisfaction will grow a bit more and that more will be made known," Nagelsmann told Bild and added:
"But it makes little sense for a player now to not give everything he can or to be more angry."
Nagelsmann points out that his successor will most likely keep an eye on the players for as long as possible before taking over.
"He doesn't start to look at the players in July. Of course, he already does that now," the Hoffenheim coach said.
Just before Christmas, Hoffenheim owner revealed that he's in contact with a potential replacement for Nagelsmann.
The main candidate is said to be Red Bull Salzburg coach Marco Rose who has been linked with the job for a while now.
