Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann got a nod of approval from the Premier League after arriving at training in style this week. 

The 34-year-old, who joined Bayern from Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig this summer, posted a picture online, showing his rather unorthodox journey as he arrived at their Sabaner Strasse training facility on a skateboard. 

The widely-admired coach was linked with a move to the top-flight prior to his switch to the German giants, with fans still hoping a move could one day materialise.

Having finished second with Leipzig last season, Nagelsmann has made a strong start to life with Bayern, who are sat top of the table after five wins and a draw from six games. 

Bayern were in action on Friday night, as they strolled to a 3-1 away win over Greuther Furth to extend their Bundesliga winning streak to five matches, despite playing almost the entirety of the second half with 10 men after Benjamin Pavard was sent off. 

The Germans also sit top of their Champions League group table after dismantling Barcelona 3-0 on away turf, with Dynamo Kyiv up next on Wednesday. 

With Nagelsmann furthering his already-impressive credentials at Bayern, it comes as no surprise that fans from the Premier League are keeping watch. 

Responding to the Nagelsmann’s tweet, supporters of both Manchester United and Manchester City called for the manager to make the switch to England.

A pair of United fans implored Nagelsmann to come to the club, despite the Manchester side making their best start to a Premier League campaign since 2017, sat third after four wins and a draw from five games. 

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola has suggested he will look to move into international management when he eventually leaves City, stating: ‘I think I’m going to have a stop. I’m going to have to take a break, see what we’ve done. Next step will be a national team, if there is a possibility.’

One fan already is already lining up the Spaniard’s replacement, writing on Twitter: ‘After Pep come to Man City.’

As stated, Nagelsmann – who is the Bundesliga’s youngest-ever coach – was linked with a move to the Premier League before joining Bayern Munich. 

In good news for those in the Premier League, Nagelsmann then admitted a move to England in the future is one that appeals to him.  

He said: ‘The Premier League is a very interesting league and I can imagine it could be a big aim to be a big manager in the Premier League one day like Jurgen (Klopp), who is very successful. It could be a step in the future.

‘You know, in soccer it’s not that easy to plan: “How long will you be a manager in Leipzig? When will you go to the Premier League?” I could imagine going to the Premier League.

‘I could imagine staying as a manager in the Bundesliga for my whole career. It’s cool to be a manager in my own country, I love it. Then perhaps in the future we can meet face-to-face in the Premier League, who knows.’
