Julian Nagelsmann opened up about managing Barcelona one day with Ernesto Valverde under pressure at the club.

“I have said it many times. Barcelona is a beautiful city, a beautiful club. But this is not the only club that is attractive,” said the 32-year-old RB Leipzig manager.

Nagelsmann also said that he had an opportunity to manage Borussia Dortmund, but turned down the job due to timing.

“It is true that there was an interest (in him, from Borussia Dortmund). In football, time and form are always the key, and that did not fit, so I was not going to join Dortmund. The timing was not appropriate, and Borussia did not want to wait.”
