“Poch got an average team to a UCL final. Nagelsmann is too inexperienced,” said a fourth fan and another added: “A year ago, I would’ve want Nagelsmann, but something tells me that if he join us, he’s just going to use us as a “experiment” and not become serious winners. Poch on the other end needs to be proven on why he’s always been a good manager. He’ll not mess around.”
