Munich’s Flick: ‘not the time to speculate’ on national team job

Hansi Flick is concentrating on his job as Bayern Munich coach but unlike others he has not explicitly ruled out succeeding Joachim Loew as national team coach in summer.

“I have a contract until 2023 and want to be successful and win titles with Bayern München. It’s not the time to speculate about my future,” Flick told reporters on Friday ahead of Munich’s Bundesliga match at Werder Bremen.

Loew said on Tuesday that he would resign from his contract until 2022 after 15 years in charge following the summer’s European championships.

Flick is seen as a top contender for the job. He was Loew’s assistant from 2006 until the 2014 World Cup title. He has worked a sports director at the ruling body DFB and became Munich coach in November 2019, winning six titles with them.

“I have a team that is absolutely top. At the moment I am enjoying it a lot,” he said.

But Flick stopped short of a clear “no” to the Germany job, which had come from Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp and RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann earlier in the week.
