Flick, however, feels quite the opposite. In fact, he is extremely happy to pair up his Bayern Munich boys with his Borussia Dortmund players to form a strong stable of athletes for the German national team.
“I absolutely welcome that. The past has shown that when you have two clubs that form a block (in the national team), you can be successful,” Flick told Sky (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
Niklas Süle, Nico Schlotterbeck, Karim Adeyemi, Julian Brandt, and Marco Reus form a solid block of players representing the Black and Yellows. Borussia Dortmund is only second to Bayern Munich in terms of club representation on the squad — and that might change if Serge Gnabry opts to leave the Rekordmeister in the coming weeks.
