Nagelsmann praises Bayern Munich defender Dayot Upamecano

Tue 19 October 2021 | 21:33

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann says his center-back Dayot Upamecano is a peaceful person despite his fierce look.

Both

Nagelsmann

and

Upamecano

joined the nine-in-a-row Bundesliga champions

Bayern Munich

from

RB Leipzig

last summer.

The defender is establishing himself as a first-team regular at the Bayern defense line, and head coach

Nagelsmann

is convinced there is a hardman element to his game, as well as the nature of a gentle giant.

"Upamecano has taken an incredible development, he has an incredible defender's gene,"

said

Nagelsmann

.

"He loves to defend. Obviously, he has a good physique. He seems mad when looking at him but he's the opposite. He is a really kind and peaceful person that has a great character. I like working with him. He's rather shy and introspective but he is a great human being.

"He looks a lot more evil than he is. I think he has never in his life hit a mosquito on the wall and probably won't do that in the future. Also from his family, he got a lot of positive things on his way while growing up. You still notice that today."

Robert Lewandowski

and

Serge Gnabry

both scored twice in the first half as Bayern Munich blew

Bayer Leverkusen

away 5-1 on Sunday.

The victory moved Bayern up to 19 points, one point ahead of

Dortmund

while Leverkusen remain third with 16.

"There's always potential to improve,"

said

Nagelsmann

.

"The question is if you have to improve or stay at your level. We'd be happy if we could keep the level of the minutes seven to 45 from the Leverkusen game. Then we could have a great away game in the Champions League."
