Nagelsmann confirms Neuer, Lewandowski, and Goretzka will remain home ahead of Pokal fixture

By Peter Vice

Bayern München head-coach Julian Nagelsmann provided squad updates ahead of his side's delayed first round Pokal fixture in Bremen tomorrow. 

The FCB gaffer also told journalists that he knew who would be in starting XI, but declined to reveal it.

One expected FCB trainer Julian Nagelsmann to leave some players out of the squad's delayed first-round domestic cup fixture on Wednesday. After all, the German giants are headed to the Hanseatic north not to play SV Werder Bremen, but fifth tier pro-am side Bremer SV.

At a Tuesday presser before the trip, the 33-year-old FCB head-coach confirmed that Manuel Neuer, Robert Lewandowski, and Leon Goretzka would remain behind. Nagelsmann revealed that in Neuer's case, he remained concerned about his first-choice keeper's lingering injury.

For the other two stars, it remains merely a matter of managing the workload ahead of the coming international break. Kingsley Coman and Lucas Hernandez--both of whom returned to training today--will also stay in Bavaria to continue to rehab injuries.

Aware that the journalists questioning him sought any hint about his potential squad selections against a partially amateur team, Nagelsmann toyed with his questioners a bit.

"I know who will be playing," the young trainer noted half-pejoratively, "I could also tell you who will be playing, but I'm not going to. I don't want to make it easy for an opponent or for you [the journalists]. You guys can wrack your brains over it until tomorrow."
