Hansi Flick on Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller: “There will never be someone like that again”

Hansi Flick has a history with the German forward and gives him exceptional praise. The newly-appointed German coach is certain to bring Müller aboard in the future.

Bayern Munich star Thomas Müller is without a doubt, one of the best players of his generation. Among his most recent feats, the Raumdeuter has recorded the most assists in the Bundesliga in back-to-back seasons. Sure, it helps when you have Robert Lewandowski to score, but not enough credit is given to Müller.

Hansi Flick, however, is not shy to praise the World Cup winning forward. Flick views Müller as an ideal player for any manager. “Thomas is a phenomenon for me. He doesn’t always do everything right in the game. But as a coach he brings you significantly more moments of joy than such in which you get upset about him - if he goes out to the corner again, where he shouldn’t be, loses the ball, and then a counterattack emerges,” Flick told Bayern magazine “51”.

Hansi Flick coached Müller when he was the assistant manager of the German national team during the 2014 World Cup, and Flick is certainly exciting to be working with Müller once again when he becomes the national coach after this summer’s competition.

“There will never be someone like him again. You often cannot grasp his style of play, but he is always positive, has the energy of an 18-year-old and encourages everyone else,” said Flick about the German forward.

We have yet to hear of any decisions for Flick’s management once he becomes the German national coach, but it’s probably fair to say that Müller won’t be going anywhere. If anyone knows Müller’s value, it’s Hansi Flick.
