Former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick is ready to start his second camp at the helm of the German national team and the sextuple-winner is excited about the possibility what he can do with his roster.

Flick loves that he has numerous players who can slide into different positions on the field. Interestingly,

“I am absolutely convinced of my players and their possibilities. We are well filled in all positions and we can line up some players variably,” said Flick in an interview with kicker. “Kai Havertz can play several positions, (Thomas) Müller and (Marco) Reus can do the same. Jamal Musiala, for example, can also play as a six.”

Musiala at the six? That would be very interesting and it would not be out of the realm of possibility that the kid could handle it. Flick is correct, though, while Germany might lack a true target man striker and might use a converted midfielder at right-back (Jonas Hofmann), the squad, overall, has tremendous flexibility.

Can Flick take that versatile talent and mold into a unite that can win the 2022 World Cup? It might seem far-fetched, but Flick might be the perfect person to devise the plan to make it work.
