Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick has confirmed that negotiations with German Football Association are at an advanced stage. Ever since it was made official by the organisation, DFB have been in talks with Flick for the managerial position of the Germany national team. Most recently, national team director Oliver Bierhoff indicated that both parties have had positive discussions, so far.
Now, ahead of Die Roten’s final Bundesliga fixture of 2020/21 season against Augsburg, coach Flick has revealed in the pre-match conference that “only small details are left to be settled” before a deal is finalized with the DFB and he succeeds Joachim Löw as the Bundestrainer (as captured by twitter account @iMiaSanMia in the following tweet)
Flick on his future: "It's clear that I spoke to the DFB. Everyone knows how I feel about the national team. Things still need to be sorted out. It's about little things. If they are settled, we can announce it quickly. At the moment, however, I've put my focus on Augsburg." pic.twitter.com/AMlBv6EEsP— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) May 21, 2021
Flick, who reportedly turned down clubs like Juventus, Barcelona and Tottenham in the past few days, is regarded very highly by DFB officials and the possibility of an agreement between them is all but guaranteed at this point. Needless to say, Germany have struck gold with this acquisition.
