Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick indicated that talks with the German Football Association have progressed.
DFB has been in discussion with Flick for the role of Germany national team manager since it was made official by the organization. National team director Oliver Bierhoff recently stated that thus far, both parties have had excellent interactions.
Now, ahead of Die Roten's final Bundesliga match of the 2020/21 season against Augsburg, coach Flick announced in the pre-match press conference that "just minute things remain to be sorted" before a deal with the DFB is concluded and he takes over as Bundestrainer from Joachim Löw (as caught by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia in the following tweet).
Flick on his future: "It's clear that I spoke to the DFB. Everyone knows how I feel about the national team. Things still need to be sorted out. It's about little things. If they are settled, we can announce it quickly. At the moment, however, I've put my focus on Augsburg." pic.twitter.com/AMlBv6EEsP— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) May 21, 2021
Flick, who has reportedly turned down teams such as Juventus, Barcelona, and Tottenham in recent days, is highly regarded by DFB officials, and a deal between the two is all but assured at this time. Without a doubt, Germany has hit gold with this purchase.
