News : FC Bayern “disapproves” of Flick’s farewell announcement – sport
The management of FC Bayern reacted angrily to coach Hansi Flick’s public announcement of his departure. “FC Bayern disapproves of the one-way communication that has now taken place by Hansi Flick and will continue the talks as agreed after the game in Mainz,” said the board of the German record champions on Sunday.
Coach Flick made public on Saturday after the Bundesliga game in Wolfsburg that he had asked Munich to terminate his contract, which was still running until mid-2023, after this season.
Bayern confirmed this request on Sunday. However, it was actually agreed with Flick to initially focus on the Bundesliga games in Wolfsburg, against Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday and FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday. This did not want to disturb “the full concentration of the entire club on these three important games”. It remains to be seen whether Flick will receive approval after the season as he had hoped.
Even with assistant coach Klose it looks like separation
Also with Miroslav Klose, currently assistant coach under Flick, it looks like a separation. His contract expires in the summer. “For me personally it is not a problem at all that the club has not yet spoken to me. What really makes me think is how people are communicating with each other here,” said the 42-year-old picture.
“To have respect for each other, even if you don’t always agree, that is absolutely necessary! Uli and Kalle have made this club a world club because they always wanted FC Bayern and not personal vanities,” praised Klose the long-time managers Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeneß. In the summer, Klose switched from the U17s of the German record champions to the professionals, where he is one of Flick’s assistants. During his time in the youth department there were occasional tensions with sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, who also has differences with Flick.
“There is simply nothing I can report on,” says Nagelsmann
There are also pithy quotes from Leipzig, where RB coach Julian Nagelsmann has not clearly ruled out a move to Bayern, but he did not want to comment on the current speculations. As the coach said on Sunday, there is “no new status”. In addition, he does not want to make himself more important than he is in the current situation, said the 33-year-old.
“There is simply nothing I can report on,” says Nagelsmann: “I think it’s totally wrong to sit down and say, ‘What if’. I can’t sit down here and say: ‘I’ll do it now tomorrow with Lena Gercke ‘- because I’ve never been with her. ” Nagelsmann, who is under contract in Leipzig until 2023, is considered the first contender for Flick’s successor.
