Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge want to keep the coach of the club Hansi Flick for a very long time.
Flick was hired as an interim coach after the dismissal of Niko Kovac in November, he then signed a three year deal with the Balvarian giants in April after bringing the club back on track.
Since then, the 55-year-old German coach has continued his success by winning the two German titles (Bundesliga and dfb pokal) in a spectacular fashion and has qualified Bayern Munich to the semi final of the Champions League.
Rummenigge was in an interview with Kicker saying “Bayern’s future coach is Hansi Flick – and hopefully he will remain so for a very, very long time. We can all congratulate ourselves on Hansi Flick last November and expressing confidence in him. He has paid back this trust again and again,”
He also added “Hansi Flick has brought back important values to the team and the club. We are in a very good position at the moment, having won the German double and advanced to the semi-finals of the Champions League. This makes us happy. We don’t just play successful football, but highly attractive football as well. This was our goal”.
In the past, Flick worked under the Germany national team coach Joachim Löw from 2006 to 2014.
Flick will now be looking to complete the treble titles which was last done in 2013 by the coach then Jupp Henyckes.
Flick will have to defeat Lyon first in the semi final on Wednesday and then win the final in Lisbon.
