Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick has had quite a few days.

In the aftermath of his team’s victory on Saturday, Flick announced his intent to resign at the end of the season, which caused a firestorm of news to hit the German media.

While that was ablaze, however, Flick was at peace and left thinking about what he had just gone through over the past few weeks in dealing with injuries during such a crucial period.

Most of all, Flick thinks his team was capable of winning more, but just hit some very unfortunate luck.

“Of course, more would have been possible. We had several absences in the most important phase, but the team did bravely,” said Flick (as captured by Tz). “We wanted to achieve more, but it didn’t work out. But defeats are part of sport and life. We still want to win the (Bundesliga) championship, that’s our big goal.”

When Flick was asked how he felt with so many players hitting social media to post pictures of them with Flick, the manager was touched and said he was “happy about the pictures.”

Regardless, there could be a lot more pictures to be taken. Flick wants to finish the season strongly and hoist the Meisterschale one more time.

“I think we can all celebrate properly then,” said Flick. “I have had a successful time here, and success you can only have together. That’s why we will also celebrate the championship together.”
