FC Bayern Munich has confirmed that current manager Hansi Flick will remain with the squad through the remainder of the season. While there have been rumors surrounding Bayern and other managers, including recently sacked Mauricio Pochettino, Bayern has decided that their current strong form was evidence enough to give Hansi Flick the remainder of the year.

When asked about the reasoning behind the decision, Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidžić stated as such:
The fact that our players have been so convincing in the past few weeks in terms of their play and character shows we are on the right track with Hansi Flick at the head of the coaching team. I am happy that we will continue working together. Hansi deserves our trust. I am convinced we can achieve our sporting goals with him, whether in the Bundesliga, the DFB Cup or the Champions League.
The hope is that Bayern will be able to continue their strong form through the 2nd half of the season in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League under the continued leadership of Hansi Flick.
