Gone are the days of boring football and the reluctance to attack.

Today marked Hansi Flick’s first official day at the help of Germany’s national football team. The 56-year-old former Bayern Munich manager was the natural choice to succeed to Joachim Löw.

One thing that Flick says that he wants to immediately change is the squad’s mindset as he wants to implement an attacking and exciting style of play for Die Mannschaft.

“For me, being the national coach is a huge responsibility that I’m really looking forward to. I will really do my best so that we can play exciting football again,” Flick told the DFB website (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia).

This should come as good news for Germany fans — many of whom lamented the squad’s stake style of play over the past four years. Like the squad selections and coaching style, Germany’s offense had become too stale and left many frustrated and yearning for a change.

Now, the change has occurred and many fans can’t wait to see what is next.
