As coach, had a nine-game stay at Benfica and a highly successful tenure at Leiria before really making his mark after arriving at Porto in January 2002. In his first full season, 2002/03, Porto won the UEFA Cup and a domestic double. The next year they retained their league title and claimed the UEFA Champions League with a 3-0 defeat of Monaco in Gelsenkirchen.

Coaching career: Augsburg (youth), 1860 München (youth), Hoffenheim (youth), Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig
• Nagelsmann's playing career began at Issing before a move to Augsburg's youth academy. From 2002 he represented 1860 München for five seasons, starting off in the youth side before being promoted to the second team.
• Injury prevented him from making a single appearance in 2006/07, so he returned to Augsburg, where he picked up a serious knee injury and was forced to retire in 2007 aged just 20 having never played a competitive first-team game.
• Nagelsmann, who has a degree in sports and applied coaching, swiftly took up a post in Augsburg's youth coaching set-up under Thomas Tuchel before two years in charge of 1860's Under-17 side.
• His association with Hoffenheim began in 2010 and he led the club's Under-19s to the league title in 2013/14, his first season. Succeeded Huub Stevens as first-team coach in February 2016, aged just 28 – the youngest coach in Bundesliga history – and guided the club away from the Bundesliga relegation zone by the end of that campaign.
• Took Hoffenheim to a fourth-placed finish in 2016/17 although their subsequent UEFA Champions League adventure lasted only one tie, Liverpool eliminating them in the play-offs. Another strong Bundesliga season was rewarded with third place and on 21 June 2018 it was announced that Nagelsmann would leave Hoffenheim at the end of 2018/19 to take over as coach of RB Leipzig; before departing he oversaw Hoffenheim's debut UEFA Champions League group campaign and a ninth-placed Bundesliga finish.
