Hansi Flick comments on Germany job as Bayern Munich boss becomes odds-on favourite

Hansi Flick is the odds-on favourite to become the next Germany manager.

Flick has enjoyed incredible success since taking charge of Bayern Munich in November 2019, but he's now priced at 2/7 (Bet Victor) to become the successor to long-serving Germany boss Joachim Low, who will depart after this summer’s European Championships.

Flick has accrued six trophies in 18 months, and while the Champions League won’t be retained, Bayern are on course for their ninth successive Bundesliga title.

Flick’s Bayern were knocked out of Europe’s elite competition in the quarter-final stage by Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG, in an engrossing 180-minute battle during which the clubs shared six goals; in the end, the French side progressed on the away goals rule.

Flick holds one of the most enviable jobs in world football, yet his strained relationship with Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has thrust his future at the club into doubt.

A power-struggle is clearly evident with the duo failing to see eye-to-eye over Bayern’s transfer policies. Thiago was allowed to leave for Liverpool last summer, while David Alaba and Jerome Boateng are set to depart at the end of the season - all three against Flick’s wishes.

Hansi Flick is now odds-on for the Germany job

Meanwhile, he's opted to give fleeting appearances to the likes of Bouna Sarr, Marc Roca and Douglas Costa, who were all brought in by Salihamidzic.

"I have a contract with Bayern but you always have thoughts about how the future looks and if everything is working wonderfully here,” Flick told Sky Deutschland after the PSG game.

"Whether I'm at the DFB [German Football Association] perhaps is irrelevant for my family. Whatever decision I make, they will support me. Having them behind me is a great feeling. I love the job and I can't imagine doing anything other than coaching.”

Given the timing of the opening at Germany Flick, who was Low’s assistant between 2006 and the World Cup triumph in 2014, will undoubtedly be tempted to sink himself into a new project. 

After all, it’s a job that doesn’t crop up very often.

Former Bayern and Germany player Lothar Matthaus, now a pundit, made some interesting comments on Tuesday night which fuelled the rumour mill.

"I'm convinced that Hansi Flick will not still be Bayern coach next season. The DFB wants Hansi Flick as a long-term solution and has made him an offer.”

If Flick does swap Bayern Munich for Germany, this could open up the door for Bayern to lure over RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann who is currently the favourite to replace Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.
