Per a report from German newspaper Welt am Sonntag (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Bayern Munich manager will not be ending his contract in an effort to pursue the Bundestrainer job with Germany.
Per the report, Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge spoke specifically on the matter and said that Flick “We are well advised to finish wat we have contractually agreed. I clearly communicated that with Hansi.”
Rummenigge also emphasized there would be “no offer” from the DFB and that “President Fritz Keller conformed that to me again in a phone call this week.” Below is the full statement, as captured in a set of two tweets:
There will be no offer from the DFB for Hansi Flick.— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) March 20, 2021
Rummenigge: "President Fritz Keller has confirmed that to me again in a phone call this week"
Flick staying at Bayern beyond this summer "has nothing to do with probability. That is a fact", says Rummenigge
Because Rummenigge — who is never one to mince words — said it was a “fact”, we can assume that the CEO means business in keeping Flick through the end of his deal.
With his contract set to expire in 2023, Flick could eventually make the jump to Germany, but Bayern Munich does not appear to want to let him out of his deal early under any circumstance, any time soon.
