Reports: Flick to sign contract to become Germany national team coach

Former Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick is set to sign his contract as the new Germany national coach, a position he will take over after the Euro 2020, the Bild newspaper and broadcasters Sky Sport reported.

The newspaper said Flick was at the German Football Federation (DFB) headquarters on Tuesday morning and that his contract will be valid until after the Euro 2024, set to take place in Germany.

Bild also reported that Flick will earn less than he did at Bayern.

The coach had previously spoken of good talks with the DFB.

“There are still a few things to be clarified. That has nothing to do with me, these are other things. When they are clarified, things will look good,” Flick said in an interview with web portal Sportbuzzer that was published on Tuesday.

Flick was promoted from assistant to head coach when Niko Kovac had to go in November 2019 and has led Bayern to seven titles.

His 18-month reign ended over a major rift with board member Hasan Salihamidzic, and he asked to be released out of his contract until 2023.

Flick was immediately pointed to as the preferred candidate to replace current Germany coach Joachim Loew, who will step down after the Euro tournament in summer.

Flick was Loew’s assistant from 2006 until the World Cup title in Brazil in 2014.
