A Champions League last 16 tie with Leipzig offers Tottenham a window into what might have been when Julian Nagelsmann brings the buccaneering Germans to London on Wednesday looking to inflict another early exit from the competition on Jose Mourinho. Nagelsmann, 32, is 25 years younger than Mourinho and has a CV 25 trophies lighter than the Portuguese; yet, many believe Spurs missed a trick in failing to pursue him as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor. Had the clash against Liverpool in Madrid gone the other way, there is every chance the Argentine would have bowed out on top. Instead, he lumbered on until November, when he was sacked, paving the way for Mourinho’s return to the Premier League. Despite his relative lack of experience, Nagelsmann would have been a more natural heir to Pochettino if Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wanted to rekindle the high-pressing, attacking and proactive football of the glory days of Pochettino’s reign. But Tottenham and plenty others were too slow off the mark when it came to getting their hands on one of Europe’s top coaching talents. After three-and-a-half seasons transforming Hoffenheim from battling for Bundesliga survival to qualifying for the Champions League, Leipzig knew Nagelsmann was the man they wanted to fulfill Red Bull’s ambitious project to dethrone Bayern Munich as the kings of German football. The bold approach of a young coach and energy of a youthful squad have taken Leipzig to within a point of Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga and into the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time.

‘I’m so proud of the group’: RB Leipzig coach after handing Atletico Madrid shocking defeat
Leipzig, who were only founded in , reached the semi-finals for the first time with a win over Atletico , twice runners-up. They will face Paris Saint-Germain for a place in the final. Twitter was full of praise for RB Leipzig as they cherished the win for a side that have achieved so much in such a short period of time.

When the most promising young coach in world football became available, RB Leipzig did not hesitate to act, even if it meant waiting a season to get their man. Just as the arc of the moral universe is long and bends towards justice, so the arc of Hoffenheim bends towards Europe — and all under the Sinsheimers’ very own charismatic young leader. Okay, no more Barack Obama, but in all seriousness: Nagelsmann’s work at Hoffenheim has – for the most part – been characterised by its incremental improvements.
The club sat 17th and seven points from safety when Nagelsmann took the reins in February following Huub Stevens’ illness-enforced retirement, but went on to finish 15th before blossoming into genuine top-six contenders, finishing third, fourth and ninth ONLY three points outside the European places in the Bavaria native’s three full seasons in charge. That Nagelsmann then took a squad that appeared destined for relegation to successive top-four finishes is a feat almost unparalleled in the German game; that he managed on a comparatively little budget is a testament to his preternatural coaching skills.
Indeed, the almost year-on-year on year improvement has not just been in league positions. Hoffenheim have progressively scored more goals, reached the UEFA Champions League and beaten record champions Bayern Munich for the first time in their history. For a club like Leipzig , who have designs on becoming regular players at the top of the Bundesliga and in the latter stages of European competition, appointing Nagelsmann is a move that appears to guarantee those aims will be met.
In fact, for further proof of the year-old’s domestic prowess, consider that only Bayern and Dortmund have collected more points than Hoffenheim since Nagelsmann assumed control back in February What he will be able to achieve on a weekly basis with an even bigger squad packed with potential is a mouthwatering prospect.
