Nagelsmann To Join RB Leipzig As Head Coach In 2019

first_imgTSG Hoffenheim head coach Julian Nagelsmann will leave the club for fellow German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in 2019.The announcement was made by Leipzig earlier on Thursday and that the 30-year-old tactician will join the club at the end of the 2018-19 season.He has signed a four-year deal at Leipzig until 2023.Julian Nagelsmann is one of Europe’s highly rated coaches and his stock continues to rise having led TSG Hoffenheim to two successive top-four league finishes.He was previously linked European giants like Arsenal, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich before he decided to pitch his tent with RB Leipzig.The German tactician was contracted to TSG Hoffenheim until 2021 only for him to trigger an exit clause in his deal thus allowing him to move to another club.Speaking about his future via a statement on his present club’s website, Nagelsmann said: “It was important to me to ensure clear conditions.”“I owe it to Hoffenheim and all of its employees, as well as to the team and the fans, in a historic season in which we are competing in the Champions League for the first time, not to have constant assumptions about me and my future. Now everyone knows and we can focus professionally on the upcoming, difficult tasks.“Everyone knows that I will be burning and doing everything I can to reach our ambitious goals until the last hour of my commitment to Hoffenheim.” He concluded.TSG Hoffenheim officials have opted not to rush into naming a replacement for Nagelsmann according to director of football Alexander Rosen who said: “We knew about the contractual option, which is not exceptional in professional football.”“It speaks for the character of Julian, that he has now laid the cards publicly on the table and created so early for all clarity.” He added.Relatedlast_img read more

NFL preview 2019: AFC East player to watch, impact rookie, projected finish

first_imgThe AFC East has been the most predictable division in football over the last decade.New England remarkably has taken home 10 straight division crowns and finished on top in 15 of the last 16 years. The Patriots and star quarterback Tom Brady aren’t focusing on their previous accomplishments, though. Player to watch Josh Allen, Bills quarterbackAllen will be one of the most intriguing players in the entire NFL this season. The Bills selected him out of Wyoming with the No. 7 pick in the 2018 draft. Overall, he struggled as a rookie, completing just 52.8% of his passes while throwing 10 touchdowns to 12 interceptions. But the team went 5-6 in his starts and he showed flashes of promise, including a five-score performance against the Dolphins in Week 17. “Being in the same system for a year … it’s been a huge help,” Allen said during OTAs in May. “It’s a complete 180 feeling from last year to this year. Obviously, having the year of experience under my belt now and being around the guys in the locker room and having such good relationships in here. … At the same time, we are just trying to make each other better and trying to win football games for the Bills.”Allen’s development will be fascinating to watch and a major key for the Bills, who hope to return to the playoffs in the near future. This was a fantastic throw by Josh Allen pic.twitter.com/j3bqvg9uD7— Bills QB Watch (@BillsQBwatch) August 24, 2019Impact rookie Chase Winovich, Patriots defensive endThe Michigan product slipped to the third round of the 2019 draft, where the Patriots scooped him up with the No. 77 overall pick. He appears to be a steal — so far, at least. Winovich recorded 11 tackles, along with 2 1/2 sacks, in the preseason and has already impressed his teammates.“He’s definitely got a high motor, that’s for sure,” Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower told reporters in early August. “He’s one of the guys who works really hard. He’s always asking questions and he obviously wants to do the right things all of the time. You really couldn’t ask much more from a guy that’s willing to do whatever and then with the way he does it. He acts like he’s done it for a while.”Winovich has a chance to take New England’s pass rush to the next level. #Patriots 3rd round pick Chase Winovich got the team 7th sack of the day. pic.twitter.com/fFA2NyviHS— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) August 9, 2019Coach on the hot seatSean McDermott, BillsMcDermott isn’t necessarily entering the season on the hot seat, but he’s the closest coach to it in the AFC East. Adam Gase (Jets) and Brian Flores (Dolphins) are in their first year in their respective jobs, so they’ll likely have some time to try to turn those franchises around. And — this goes without saying — Bill Belichick obviously isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, unless he chooses to.Coming off a 6-10 record from last season, McDermott’s seat could get warmer in 2019 if the Bills once again struggle and Allen either regresses or fails to take a step forward. Key matchup Jets at Patriots, Sept. 22:The Jets have a long, long way to go to challenge the Patriots. Everything will have to break just right in order for them to win, but with quarterback Sam Darnold and the addition of running back Le’Veon Bell, New York appears like the team in the division best positioned to do so. The Jets likely will need a win in New England if they want to have any shot at dethroning the Patriots in the AFC East.Predicted finishThis isn’t a tough call. Despite the Patriots losing tight end Rob Gronkowski to retirement after last season, the defending champions still bring back Brady, receiver Julian Edelman and a host of other offensive weapons. Their defense isn’t too shabby, either, and they’re certainly a favorite to represent the AFC in a fourth straight Super Bowl.The Jets and Bills should fight for the second spot in the division behind New England, though neither is expected to finish the season in playoff contention. The Dolphins, on the other hand, may have a tough time picking up wins. 1. Patriots NFL preview 2019: AFC South player to watch, impact rookie, projected finish “If (there’s) anything the Patriots have taught me, it is being in the present and not resting on what has happened in the past and certainly not worrying what is happening in the future,” Brady said during a radio interview in mid-August. “I am excited to get out there and play this year and do what I hope to do for this team.”8/12, 75 yards. @TomBrady was sharp in his #NFLPreseason debut! #CARvsNE pic.twitter.com/yXmNPRHdOh— NFL (@NFL) August 23, 2019The Patriots clearly are the front-runners to capture an 11th straight AFC East title entering the season. The Bills and Jets are expected to be afterthoughts, but both are led by young, developing quarterbacks while the Dolphins are rebuilding. Here is your 2019 AFC East preview.
