I am not in the backroom or the locker room. But from the outside, having been around the block even a few german blocks, it looks to me like this: Tedesco: My best young attacking player, heart of my team Goretzka free transfer OUT >> Rudy 28 year old has been BM center back in at $28mm IN << A lot of unproven this or that on the cheap from here or there IN. 36 year old veteran soul of my team OUT>> I am the best coach in the Bundesliga now that Tommy Teuchel is out. And you give me this crap to play a defensive 5-3-2? Fine. So he rolls out a 2-1-3-2-1-1 and a 3-1-2-4... That's a coach saying: F*you and your stupidity. he took the CL seriously because, how can you not? Those were auditions for the job at Everton, Tottenham, Valencia etc.
