Hansi Flick to coach Germany post UEFA Euro 2020
Hansi Flick last managed Bayern Munich last season, leading the side to twin Bundesliga titles, including a UEFA Champions League. Germany is being managed by Joachim Löw since 2006, having won the FIFA World Cup in 2014, while he would step down post UEFA Euro 2020.
The German national football team is all set to get a new manager after 15 years. Renowned manager Hansi Flick would be replacing Joachim Löw following the team's commitments after the UEFA Euro 2020, ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Löw has managed Germany since 2006. Under him, the side has attained considerable success, including the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017.
As for Flick, he had last managed Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich between 2019-21, leading the side to twin Bundesliga titles and the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League title. It would be his maiden stint as the national head coach for any side, having already served as the assistant to Löw between 2006-14.
"It all went surprisingly quickly for me with the signature, but I am very happy to be able to work as national coach from autumn onwards. The season has just ended and the two years at Bayern Munich are helping The team spirit and the attitude of the players were outstanding, and I'll take a lot with me that will continue to shape my work. I'm really looking forward to it because I can see the great quality of the players, especially the young players in Germany. That's how we have it every reason to approach the upcoming tournaments with optimism, for example the European Championship at home in 2024," told Flick to German Football Association after being roped in for the role on Tuesday.
"In addition, I know from best experience that I am with Oliver Bierhoff, I have a strong, trustworthy partner by my side and who work in the team behind the team, so that the team, we trainers and staff can get started without a long start-up time. I am also looking forward to contributing my ideas and ideas beyond the national team to the academy and the other national teams. The important thing now is not what will happen in September - I will contact you in detail in August - but the upcoming European Championship, for which I wish Jogi Löw, Marcus Sorg, Andy Köpke and the team the greatest possible success. Jogi Löw has more than deserved a great end to his career as national coach," he concluded.
Flick's has won nine titles in his managerial stint to date, including seven with Munich, besides winning n six individual accolades related to coach. As for Löw, it is unclear if he would retire from the role thoroughly or consider managing a club instead.
