Julian Nagelsmann paid tribute to predecessor Hansi Flick after winning his first piece of silverware as Bayern Munich head coach, courtesy of a 3-1 victory at Borussia Dortmund in the 2021 Supercup.


Julian Nagelsmann was very proud

After the game, Julian said the following “I think we defended very well, especially in the first half. We thoroughly deserved to win. It’s not easy against Dortmund with the attacking power that they have. The title is a reward for last season because we won the title. Not me, but Hansi Flick. The title belongs more to others than it does to me. Along with Julian Nagelsmann, there was the main player of the game – Serge Gnabry. Although Robert Lewandowski scored two goals, Gnabry had a perfect game. He said that it’s always important to win the first trophy. It’s a sign to Dortmund, who are one of our biggest rivals. It’s a long season, we’ve got to play them twice, but if they’d have beaten us, it’d have given them a boost, for sure. Keeping possession and controlling the game was key. Manu saved brilliantly from Haaland to keep us in the game, but from then on we were the better team. The third goal was unlucky for them, but we deserved the win. It’s always a great feeling, even more so in front of fans today.


Dortmund did everything but failed

The midfield line of Dortmund was very disappointed after the game. Bellingham said that he was just looking forward to it. Where else would you want to be than playing here against one of the best teams in the world, in front of the best fans in Europe? We can take positives from this. The loss will give us hunger going forward. We’re all gutted we couldn’t get our hands on the trophy, but we’ll use it to motivate us.
