Julian Nagelsmann on his plan for Kylian Mbappé & Neymar: “We have to be very fast on the defensive line.”

Speaking to BT Sport following RB Leipzig’s 2-1 win against Atlético Madrid, head coach Julian Nagelsmann discussed his plan for Kylian Mbappé, Neymar & Co.

“We have to be very fast on the defensive line,” said the 30-year-old. “As you saw today, Upamecano and Klostermann are very fast and they defend very well but there will be situations when you can’t defend against these guys on your own.

“You saw that yesterday. Atalanta tried to cover them man-to-man but it’s not easy because if you lose a duel then they’ve got numbers up on the next line and there’s a lot of starts in that team and it will not be easy but we will try and go to the final.”
