Nagelsmann confirms Leroy Sane will be fit for the World Cup

Bayern Munich closed the gap on Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin to a single point after victory against Hoffenheim on Saturday.


beat Hoffenheim thanks to goals from Jamal Musiala and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. Bayern after four games without a victory have won three of their last four games but Julian Nagelsmann insists they have not changed their tactics.

"I think we already had plenty of good games beforehand, we just didn't use our chances,"

he said at a post-match press conference.

"There were games like against Stuttgart [2-2 home draw] where we should have been up three or four nil but ended up drawing. Similar against Dortmund as well.

"In general we didn't change too much, neither did the players, they were already working hard... As I've said already, the players want to improve as well and have a very high expectation of themselves.

"We didn't train differently, maybe a little more analysis, and then just [started] winning. At Bayern, you always need to win, then everything is great.”

Nagelsmann also confirmed that

Leroy Sane’s

injury is not serious and he will be fit for the World Cup.

"It's difficult to predict [how long he will be out for] but the fact he's already back on his feet is great,"

he said.

"We don't really have much experience with him [in recovering from this type of injury] because he has not really had muscle problems... It's not the biggest of injuries.

"He could be back in two-and-a-half or three weeks, and he can certainly be fit and in a good rhythm prior to the World Cup."
