During his weekly press conference, Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick touched on the abhorrent behavior of some fans, who have taken to social media to harass sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic and his family.

Flick was left dumbfounded how anything could escalate to that level.

“I don’t know and I can’t explain it. I think everyone can imagine what it must be like to have your family insulted. Brazzo has a great family, I know his son Nick very well. Lines have been crossed, which is a no-go,” Flick said (as captured by Tz).

Flick also insisted that no matter now much he and Salihamidzic disagreed on things, the matters always stayed professional and never got personal between the two.

“With all the things Brazzo and I had, it never got personal. It was all part of the journey together. I enjoy the work more than the successes. We can win seven titles in two years and Brazzo played a big part in that,” Flick said. “We have a different approach, but that has nothing to do with the fact that we don’t appreciate each other personally and that’s what counts in the end. Insults like that shouldn’t be the order of the day, that’s just not part of it. I disapprove of all of this.”
