Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have extended head coach Hansi Flick’s contract until 2023 after being appointed interim boss earlier in the season.
Flick joined the Bayern backroom team in the summer of 2019, initially as assistant to Niko Kovac, who was fired in November after a poor start to the season and will now be at the club for a longer period with the position having attracted some big names in world football.
Club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "FC Bayern is very happy with Hansi Flick's work. The team has developed very well under him and plays attractive football, which is also reflected in the results. We are the only German club that is still represented in all three competitions.
On his part, Flick said: "I look forward to tackling the upcoming tasks together with my coaching team and the team. The conversations with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic were very good and characterized by great mutual trust.
"Together we have defined the direction for the coming years. I am sure that we can achieve a lot together."
Prior to taking up his role at Bayern, Flick had worked with Germany boss Joachim Low between 2006 and 2014 and was part of the coaching set-up which was victorious in the 2014 World Cup.
