Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick said on Saturday he had told the team and club bosses that he wanted to leave the German champions at the end of the season despite his contract running until 2023.
Hansi Flick’s decision comes after Bayern Munich’s title defence in the Champions League came to an early end. Bayern were ousted by PSG who dominated the two-leg quarter-final earlier this month.
The former Germany assistant coach, who initially took over on an interim basis in November 2019, led the club to a spectacular winning run that earned them six domestic and international titles in the following months, including the Champions League and the club World Cup crown.
“The situation is I told the team today that I informed the club during the week that I wanted to get out of my contract at the end of the season,” Flick said after his team’s 3-2 victory over VfL Wolfsburg.
Notably, Hansi Flcik has emerged as the leading candidate to take over the German national team once Joachim Löw finally steps down after this year’s European Championship. Flick was Löw’s assistant from 2006-14. (With Agency Inputs)
