Julian Nagelsmann started out as a coach with the TSG academy in 2010 and led the U19s to the German Championship four years later. Nagelsmann took over the Bundesliga team, which was battling relegation, at the request of TSG patron Dietmar Hopp and now TSG managing director Alexander Rosen at the age of only 28 in February 2016. TSG Hoffenheim comfortably secured their top-flight status thanks to the Landsberg native, who then guided the Kraichgau club into the UEFA Europa League and later on the UEFA Champions League. Those were TSG's first participations in international competition. Nagelsmann moved to RB Leipzig in 2019, before joining FC Bayern Munich two years later.
"We're of course delighted. Julian was trained at TSG Hoffenheim, we worked successfully for a very long time. He'll receive the maximum support from us. Now it's a case of everyone in German football working together to make sure it's a successful home EURO," said Alexander Rosen of the decision.
The former Hoffenheim trio will now have the honour of leading the German national football team into UEFA EURO 2024 on home soil. TSG Hoffenheim wish Julian Nagelsmann and his two assistant coaches Benjamin Glück and Sandro Wagner the best of luck for the task ahead.
