Hansi Flick can continue his work at Bayern Munich beyond the end of the season. The German record champions will extend the contract with the 55-year-old by three years until June 30, 2023. The club bosses and the coach agreed on this, as the club announced. The engagement of the former assistant coach, who had succeeded Niko Kovac in November, was planned until summer.
“The team has developed very well under him and is playing attractive football, which is also reflected in the results,” said CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge of Bavaria. “I also like the way he leads the team, his human qualities are convincing and his empathy speaks for him.”
Initially, Flick was a short-term solution for two games, then one until Christmas, before he was promoted to boss at least for the current season. “Together we have set the course for the coming years. I am sure that we can achieve a lot together,” said Flick.
“Hansi and I know in which direction we want to develop the team,” said sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. “Football is facing major challenges. We believe that Hansi is also the right head coach for this time.”
