RB Leipzig Reject Julian Nagelsmann As Lampard Replacement

Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester saw pressure pile on Frank Lampard’s position and calls for him to be replaced by grow louder.

And speculation has since grown of a move for Julian Nagelsmann, who has guided RB Leipzig to second in the Bundesliga and 2019/20 Champions League semi-finals at 33 years old.

But the German side side made their stance clear on their manager in a Twitter exchange with a Chelsea supporter.

The fan wrote on social media: “Leipzig admin!! Long time no see! How you doing?

 “Had a lot of fun trying to get Timo Werner from you last time and that all worked out! You've been doing well!

 “Turns out we now need another favour from you it seems… how's your coach Julian doing?”

The official account wasted no time replying, though, as they simply said: “Doing great, thanks!

“And… no chance. Bye.”

Nagelsmann started his managerial career at Hoffenheim after a knee injury at Augsburg in 2008 ended his playing career.
