Bavarian Podcast Works — Special Edition: Hansi Flick wants to leave Bayern Munich

Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?

Bayern Munich downed Wolfsburg 3-2 in the Bundesliga, but the biggest news of the day would not drop until the postgame when it was leaked that Hansi Flick had let the club’s front office know that he wanted to leave.

Obviously, this is not great news for Bayern Munich fans, who saw Flick salvage what looked like a lost 2019/2020 season and turn that campaign into a sextuple-winning thrill-ride.

There probably was not another manager who could have overseen that run with such success and aplomb, but Flick pushed nearly all the right buttons for 2019/2020, while also having tremendous success in 2020/2021 as well.

There will be plenty to talk about in the coming days, but check out our initial reaction at Bavarian Podcast Works as we walk through the following topics:

  • How Flick was able to fix Bayern Munich in 2019/2020.
  • How effectively Flick managed his roster and communicated with players — which built an immense amount of trust.
  • How things got to this point.
  • Some potential successors.
