It’s official! Hansi Flick will replace Joachim Löw as the head coach of the German national team after the upcoming Euros. Bayern Munich’s sextuple winning manager has signed a three-year contract, which would keep him at the national team until 2024.
Flick is looking forward to embark on a new journey in his career and is indeed grateful for the exceptional two years he had in Munich. He commented: “Everything went surprisingly quickly for me with the signature, I am very happy to be able to work as the national team coach from autumn. The season has just ended, and the two years at Bayern Munich are still having a strong impact on me.”
“The team spirit and the attitude of the players at Bayern were outstanding, and I’m taking away a lot that will continue to shape my work. I’m really looking forward to it because I can see the quality of players, especially the young players in Germany”, added Flick.
DFB director Oliver Bierhoff commented that everyone at the DFB was filled with joy to have finally made the signing happen, saying: “I am very proud that we have succeeded in signing Hansi Flick. He was at the top of my list from the start. I have known and appreciated the human and professional qualities of Hansi Flick since our many successful years together with the national team.”
Thankfully, the German national team will be in safe hands.
Vielen dank und alles gute, Hansi!
