Bayern give Flick the thumbs-up
– Bayern Munich yesterday confirmed interim boss Hansi Flick will remain head coach “until at least” the end of the season after winning eight of his 10 games in charge.
“FC Bayern and Hansi Flick have agreed” that he “will remain head coach... at least until the end of the current season,” the club said in a statement.
“A continuation of Hansi Flick as head coach beyond that is a conceivable option,” Bayern said.
The 54-year-old, an assistant with the Germany team that won the 2014 World Cup, took charge after Niko Kovac was sacked in early November.
Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Wolfsburg kept Bayern third in the Bundesliga heading into the four-week winter break, four points behind leaders RB Leipzig.
Under Flick Bayern have reached the last-16 of the Champions League and became the first German club to win all six matches in the group stage. – AFP
