Hansi Flick to take Germany national team

A fascinating match yesterday as Champions League holders Bayern Munich were knocked out by French League 1 giant Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday; coach Hansi Flick tipped to leave the club at the end of the season to take Germany’s job since Joachim Low would vacate the head coach’s position after the Euros.

Hansi Flick will leave Bayern Munich in the summer to take over from Joachim Low as coach of the Germany national team, Lothar Matthaus has said.

Flick has steered Bayern to success after success since taking over from Niko Kovac in November 2019, winning six trophies in 18 months in Bavaria.

Last month it was announced that Joachim Low will step down from his role as Germany head coach following Euro 2020 after asking to end his contract early, and Flick has been one of the names mentioned as a potential successor.

Speaking to Sky in Germany, Matthaus believes that Bayern’s Champions League exit at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain will persuade Flick to be the one to take over from Low.

“I already said two weeks ago that in my opinion, this is Hansi Flick’s last season,” he said. “I’ve said that Hansi Flick is right at the top of the DFB [German Football Federation] list, and then nothing else for a long time. There’s an offer from the DFB, yes.

“So, they want Hansi Flick and I think – or rather, I’m convinced – that Hansi Flick will no longer be Bayern coach after this season.

“That means the last game against Augsburg at home will be Hansi Flick’s last game as head coach of Bayern.”

And, according to former defender Matthaus, Bayern is already planning for Flick’s successor, with RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann identified as the man they want to come in.
