News : Hansi Flick in private: How does the Bayern Munich coach tick off the pitch?

One can imagine that Hans-Dieter “Hansi” Flick (born 1965) is quite satisfied when it is said about him: “Hansi is a competent specialist, with a lot of experience and a high level of social competence.” The quote comes from Oliver Bierhoff, DFB director and for many years a companion of Flick in the context of the German Soccer-National team. One for the front row was Flick, apart from his position as an active player in midfield, but not for a long time. But even there it was rather modest with the goal scoring.

Hansi Flick celebrates World Cup triumph alongside Joachim Löw

He wore the Bayern jersey from 1985 to 1990 and expanded the coaching staff in the summer of 2019 to include the then coach of FC Bayern Munich, Niko Kovac. In November 2019, after Kovac’s departure from the Isar, Flick automatically became a man just in case and took over the coaching post permanently from 2020. His credo is: “As a coach, you are there for the players.” As a close colleague and confidante of national coach Löw, Flick played a significant role in the German 2014 World Cup triumph in Brazil.

Hansi Flick: career as a player – sports disabled at the age of 28

It was a long way for Flick to reach the legendary World Cup final and the golden cup that made an entire football nation happy. He started at the clubs BSC Mückenloch, SpVgg Neckargemünd and SV Sandhausen. In 1985, at the age of 20, Flick moved to Bayern on the Isar and made over 100 games for the record champions by 1990. After three more years for 1. FC Köln, he hung up his football boots after numerous injuries. At the age of 28, Flick is a sports disabled person.

Flick then moves relatively quickly to the coaching bench. The starting shot was given in 1996 at Viktoria Bammental. This is followed by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (2000-2005) and RB Salzburg (2006 under Giovanni Trapattoni and with Lothar Matthäus). Then Flick becomes Joachim Löw’s indispensable assistant in the national team, changes to the post of DFB sports director in 2014 and takes over as managing director at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (2017 – 2018) before joining Bayern. On April 18, 2021, Flick announced that he will be leaving FC Bayern Munich in the summer of 2021.

Hansi Flick privately: He learned this job alongside his professional career

Grew up Hansi Flick in Neckargemünd-Mückenloch. And the ex-kicker and now coach can do more than kick the pill. After graduating from a university of applied sciences, Flick, who was born in Heidelberg, completed a very down-to-earth apprenticeship as a banker. He lives with his family in Bammental in the Electoral Palatinate, where he also ran a sports shop until 2017. As the “Bild” reports, you have to “just call Flick Hans-Dieter by his real name” to annoy him. Apparently he doesn’t like it.

Hansi Flick privately married to Mrs. Silke

As far as his private life is concerned, Flick is largely covered. Here too, the “Bild” knows: “His wife Silke, his daughters Kathrin and Hannah and the two grandchildren are more than anything to him.” As the “AZ” writes, Flick and Ms. Silke have been married for over 30 years. According to “Bild”, he is remembered by his ex-trainer Jupp Heynckes: “He’s not someone who likes to start a fight.” Except maybe because of the name thing.

Hansi Flick as the successor to Joachim Löw as national coach?

Since Joachim Löw announced that he would resign as national coach, Hansi Flick has recently also been under discussion as a hot candidate for Löw’s successor. This career move does not seem to be entirely out of the question for him. In the last interview, he was ambiguous and announced that his family would “no matter what I would do, always support him and stand behind me”.
