Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick might be exiting the club football game shortly, but that does not mean he is going to withhold his opinion on the potential of a European Super League.

Not surprisingly, Flick is not a fan of the idea. Even though the manager is focused on a strong finish for his team’s Bundesliga season, he took a few seconds to give his take on one of the most highly-debated topics in all of sports.

“I have other issues on my mind right now, but I am fully behind the club’s statement,” Flick said (as captured by Tz). “(The European Super League) would not be good for European soccer.”

It is widely-assumed that Flick will move on to take the manager job with Germany after Joachim Löw, but whatever happens with the European Super League, the impact will likely be felt at both the club and national team levels.
