Nagelsmann said: “Toni is important for us, you can give him the ball at any time.

"He’s an important player for everyone, but especially for the youngsters in the squad.

“It was difficult to convince him to come back. He told me he would only return if he felt we could win something. And then he said, ‘Yes, let’s do it.”
