Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick will be stepping down from his post after Saturday’s match against FC Augsburg.
The 56-year-old will leave the club after a wildly successful tenure at the club, which includes seven championships. Still, his time at the club was not easy — and not just against the competition on the pitch.
Flick was tasked with leading his squad through a global pandemic and keeping them focused on the end of goal of winning as many trophies as possible.
He didn’t win them all...but he came close.
“The time without spectators was difficult. It is a pity that this is the end of it now. The fans are what make sport. Nevertheless, we want to play another good game against Augsburg,” said Flick (as captured by Tz). “I just enjoyed the trip that I started. We were able to work with a great team in a short, intensive and successful way. This is something very special. But I’m also looking forward to this chapter coming to an end. It goes on.”
As we know, that next chapter will likely include a stint leading Germany.
