Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge knows a coaching talent when he sees one, so the upcoming departure of Hansi Flick probably still stings him a bit.

Rummenigge, however, hopes that Flick lands his “dream job” with the German national team, which will be looking for a new boss this summer when Joachim Löw steps down. While Rummenigge assuredly wants Flick to be happy, the CEO also wants to avoid any potential drama that might occur if Flick opted to instead coach at another club abroad.

“I wish it for the DFB. It would be the first positive sign,” said Rummenigge (as captured by Tz). “One can only urgently recommend that the association clarify this matter as quickly as possible. Because it would be a drama if Hansi went abroad. Because of his success at FC Bayern, he is in great demand there.”

As for Flick, he is still playing coy about his future.

“I don’t know yet, I’m open to many things. I had a lot of fun with Jogi, Oli Bierhoff and Andi Köpke. I have a deep trust in Oliver Bierhoff and I have no pressure at all. I want to continue to be a coach and win titles. It’s a lot of fun,” Flick said.

Would Flick ever consider a return to Bayern Munich? Well....yeah, he would.

“I can imagine a lot. That is not impossible. FC Bayern is my club, ” said Flick (as captured by Sport1’s Florian Plettenberg).

As Rummenigge stated, it would behoove the DFB to get a deal done with Flick as soon as possible and eliminate any chance of a big, foreign club entering the bidding with a monster offer.
