Julian Nagelsmann reiterated he has not held talks about the Bayern Munich job – and likened speculation he has to breaking up with a German model who has never actually been his girlfriend.

RB Leipzig head coach Nagelsmann was speaking a day after Hansi Flick announced he was set to leave Bayern at the end of the season.

Flick has been strongly tipped to take over as Germany national team coach with current boss Joachim Low stepping down after the rescheduled Euro 2020 tournament.

Nagelsmann is among the leading contenders to succeed Flick at the Allianz Arena with former Bayern and Germany international Lothar Matthaus indicating he was a shoo-in for the job.

The 33-year-old has won 52, drawn 21 and lost 15 of his 88 matches in charge of Leipzig with a win percentage of 59.09.

But he has again stressed no discussions between himself and Bayern have taken place.

“There is simply nothing I can report,” Nagelsmann told a media conference on Sunday ahead of Leipzig’s Bundesliga clash with Cologne.

“I think it’s totally wrong to then sit down and say what if, and maybe get yourself talked about somewhere and make yourself important on things that aren’t there.

“I can’t sit down and say, I’m going to break up with Lena Gercke [German model] tomorrow, because I’ve never dated her, for example.

“I’m sorry to say that there are no new developments compared to the last press conference. The same things apply that I said there.

“There are and were no discussions and no offer. That’s why I don’t know what Bayern’s wish is. I have said I don’t want to start a war with my employers – that’s still the case.”
