RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann, younger than both Messi and Ronaldo, leads his team to Champions League semi-final

Julian Nagelsmann has become the youngest coach ever to reach the Champions League semi-finals. He was born on 23rd July 1987.

Lionel Messi, born on 24th June 1987 and Cristiano Ronaldo, born on 5th February 1985 are both older than the German coach.

The Bundesliga side RB Leipzig came into existence just 11 years ago and they are now into the Champions League semi-finals. They will face Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain.

Nagelsmann has done an excellent job. Even after losing his best performer Timo Werner, who has signed for Chelsea, he guided his team to victory against a resilient Atletico Madrid team.

They went 1-0 up after the start of the second half via Dani Olmo’s header. But Simeone brought Joao Felix on and he turned the match into Atletico’s favour.

Felix earned a penalty and converted it into a goal himself. Atletico were looking to break again but Dayot Upamecano excellently led the backline to hold off Atletico’s attack. And then in the last minutes of the match, super-sub Tyler Adams scored a goal deflected of Savic. It was enough for Leipzig to progress into the semi-final and set up a date with PSG.

Atletico Madrid midfielder congratulated Julian Nagelsmann’s team on their victory. He said: “They were superior in many ways – you need to congratulate the opponent for how they played.”
