Nagelsmann brushes off rumours of Bayern contact as 'comical'
Julian Nagelsmann has long been touted as a potential long-term Bayern Munich coach, but insists that there has been no offer yet.
Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann says rumours he has been in contact with Bayern Munich over a future move are "comical" andÂ insistsÂ there has been no offer from the Bavarian club.
Bayern sacked Carlo Ancelotti at the end of September and re-appointed Jupp Heynckes for the remainder of the season, leading toÂ questionsÂ overÂ the club's plansÂ for the nextÂ campaign.
Numerous reports in recent weeks have suggestedÂ Nagelsmann has already been lined up by Bayern, with the 30-year-old seemingly opening the door to such a move last monthÂ when he saidÂ he considers the area to be his "home".
However, the highly rated coach, who has presided over another strong start to the Bundesliga season with Hoffenheim, is adamantÂ there is no truth to such speculation.
"I think it's comical how this is reported," Nagelsmann told reporters at his media conference on Thursday.
"There's no inquiry, no offer and zero contact from my side. It's bad for you that there are no facts but many fictional things to write about.Â
"I've been coaching at Hoffenheim for seven years and every day I'm thrilled to be able come here and work with this team. I'm very happyÂ to be at Hoffenheim."
