Nagelsmann wants to star Muller against Union Berlin

Bayern Munich will have an all-important Bundesliga clash against Union Berlin this weekend where Thomas Muller is set to start.

The Bayern Munich legend was taken off after only 16 minutes against Borussia Monchengladbach, after Upamecano was sent off for Bayern.

Bayern Munich

went on to lose the potentially title-deciding match 3-2.

Julian Nagelsmann was slammed because he took Muller off against Gladbach and then also chose to start him off the bench against PSG.

"Thomas is a very experienced player, he was told why the decision was made,"

Nagelsmann said at his pre-match press conference.

 "You can always discuss it afterwards. I spoke to Thomas at length and clearly he is not happy.

"He is very professional and an important player. His importance is huge because it goes beyond the game itself. He will start on Sunday. He is aware of the overall situation."

Union Berlin

is winless against Bayern Munich in 7 Bundesliga outings but they are level on points with the Bavarian Giant.

"I'm expecting a top game,"

Nagelsmann said. "

Union always bring their football onto the pitch, designed for counter-attacks, with their physicality. It's always uncomfortable to play them.

"It will definitely be an exciting and interesting game, hopefully with a better outcome for us."

Bayern Munich could see the return of Sadio Mane, who has been injured since November, losing out on the World Cup.

"Sadio Mane isn't fit enough to start,"

Nagelsmann added. "

But he is an option that we're really happy about."
