WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to TZ, Kimmich said, "We won only 5 games out of 10. But I can say that he didn’t lose the dressing room. I’ve already been through a few coaching changes – there was nothing to indicate internally that he lost the dressing room or that players are unhappy. We all were surprised."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Nagelsmann's last game in charge was a 2-1 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in the league. His side had won four successive matches before that and, across October and November, they won 10 on the bounce.
