Hansi Flick is confirmed as Germany head coach
It has been announced that Hansi Flick will take over as Germany’s national team coach until Euro 2020.
After the finals this season, the Bayern Munich manager will succeed Joachim Low, ending Low’s 15-year reign.
Last month, Flick told the Bundesliga champions that he will be leaving at the end of the season. His contract will start on July 1st.
On Tuesday morning, the 56-year-old was photographed with Germany’s technical director Oliver Bierhoff as the announcement was made through social media channels.
Between 2006 and 2014, Flick served as Low’s assistant in the national team, and he has since excelled as the head coach of the Bundesliga’s most decorated side, earning an impressive sextuple with the Bavarian outfit in 2020.
‘Everything happened really quickly, particularly signing the deal, but I’m very happy to be the Germany head coach from autumn,’ Flick said of his appointment.
