Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich has named Julian Nagelsmann among his choice of the three best managers in world football.
Although the Germany international did not mention the other two, he insisted that the Bayern Munich manager is in his top three coaches.
Reports in Europe suggest that Bayern Munich are preparing to announce the sacking of Nagelsmann and appoint Thomas Tuchel as their new head coach.
Kimmich, paying tribute to Nagelsmann during his press conference with the German national side on Friday, said, “I can only say that Julian is an outstanding coach.
“I’ve had many coaches in my career and he is easily in the top three.
“But I cannot say anything on this issue [concerning his sacking] and please respect it.”
