JUST IN: Bayern Munich Manager Hansi Flick To Leave Club By End Of Season

By  | 

Hansi Flick’s stint as Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich manager will come to a halt by the end of the season.

Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano made this known via a series of tweets, saying Flick has announced his official decision to the board and players.

According to Romano, the 56-year-old manager is now set to become the new coach of German National Team after Euro 2020 — when Joachim Löw leaves the job.

Flick said after Bayern’s 3-2 Bundesliga win over Wolfsburg on Saturday afternoon — which gave them a seven-point league lead — that he informed club bosses in mid-week about his decision. There was no immediate reaction from the club.

“I just told the team that I told the club during the week after the 1-0 in Paris that I would like to get out of my contract,” Flick told Sky Sports.

“It was important to me that the team heard it from me.”

Löw’s former assistant Flick joined Bayern as assistant manager to Niko Kovac for the start of the 2019 season, but was promoted to interim manager when Kovac left in November the same year.

He was made permanent manager in April 2020 and went on to win six titles with the team — Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League trophies, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup.
