Germany Enticed By Flick
Its not only Flick’s exceptional reign at Bayern Munich which have seen him spearhead the race but also the time he spent with Low. Flick served as Flick’s assistant with the German football team for a period of eight years with the two getting started at their roles in 2006.
Flick who took over from Niko Kovac at Bayern Munich not only overhauled a struggling Bayern Munich outfit but transformed them into an invincible unit. He’s left manifold titles in only 18 months with the lengthy list of trophies including the Bundesliga and Champions League.
His exceptional transformation of the German club has seen Bayern Munich be quick to clobber any news of Flick leaving the club for the Germany. Club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge shot down the prospect of Flick leaving to become Germany boss, saying the coach will remain at Bayern for the next season.
However, with Rummenigge stepping from his position at Bayern Munich at the turn of the year as Oliver Kahn replaces him, Flick may be coaxed into opting for the Germany job.
