Now, of course, the press conference of RB Leipzig with coach Julian Nagelsmann, which will take place at 1.30 p.m., is eagerly awaited. Hansi Flick will speak to the press again tomorrow at 1 p.m.
The Bavarians did regenerative training today from 10 a.m. to 10.50 a.m. Flick left the office at 12.27 p.m., but the bosses are probably still sitting together.
How Sport1 reported, there have already been talks with trainer candidates between those responsible at RB Leipzig. The lawn ballers want to demand a transfer fee of over 15 million euros. Andre Villas-Boas moved from Porto to Chelsea for 15 million euros in 2011 – the record so far.
Flick quake at FC Bayern: All developments in the live ticker
Flick has announced that he will leave the club in the summer. How do Bayern react? Does FC Bayern want to receive a transfer fee for Flick? Felix Magath thinks that it should definitely be more expensive than Adi Hütter, who is moving to Gladbach for 7.5 million euros.
Both at Sky90 as well as in One-two the guests criticize the leadership vacuum at Bayern. Click here for the SPOX comment.
Felix Magath continues to protect Hasan Salihamidzic: “Nobody can tell me that it was a spontaneous action. I’m not against Hansi Flick or for Hasan Salihamidzic. I’m just saying how it works from my point of view. Hansi Flick will be National coach, that’s the best solution. The bosses should sit down. It’s clear that there will be unrest – especially against Salihamidzic, who has nothing to do with it. FC Bayern will also be successful with another coach. It will be pretended here that after six titles there are six more. There is still no coach who has been able to defend these titles at Bayern, no matter what his name is. It’s just like that. “
After returning from Wolfsburg, the Bayern bosses went to Säbener Strasse to discuss the situation, according to the picture. Accordingly, one is not sure how to react to Flick’s advance.
Felix Magath can’t understand why Flick wants so much power. “Hansi Flick came to FC Bayern as an assistant. So I am surprised that Hansi Flick should lead the personnel policy at FC Bayern. That has never happened before. I was twice a double winner and had hardly any influence,” said Magath. When he once pointed out to Hoeneß that he was selling a player, he was asked if he was insane. “The composition of the squad has always been a matter for the board of directors. As a club, I don’t let an interim coach dictate the personnel policy. If he had been signed up for three years, it could be discussed. In this situation there was no reason to listen to him. That was probably the beginning of the argument, “said Magath.
Julian Nagelsmann is considered the hottest candidate to succeed Flick. In the discussions about the Upamecano transfer, Salihamidzic is said to have already spoken about him with his advisor, who also looks after Upamecano. This is reported by Bild and Sky. “Bayern Munich has already had a little chat with Nagelsmann, including about economic issues, as much as we know,” Lothar Matthäus added on Tuesday Sky asserts.
Yesterday followed up and claimed that he did not mean Nagelsmann directly, but his advisor. There, too, it is said to have been about economic matters. “There were and are no discussions. This also applies to my consultants, because they are not self-sufficient,” Nagelsmann explained last week.
Speaking of surprised Bayern bosses. After the Wolfsburg game, Sky reporter Uli Köhler spoke to Uli Hoeneß on the phone. The honorary president is said to have been completely surprised and did not know that Flick had announced his departure.
According to matching media reports, Flick is said to have taken the Bayern bosses by surprise with his announcement. When Flick stepped in front of the cameras, they were already on their way to the airport (due to Corona they are flying separately from the team). It was therefore expected that Flick would only make his decision public after the Leverkusen game. So now it turned out differently.
Who will succeed Hansi Flick? As the picture reports, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is said to be skeptical of an obligation by Julian Nagelsmann. The Bayern boss should probably prefer Ajax coach Erik ten Hag. Massimiliano Allegri, meanwhile, shouldn’t be a candidate. The Italian should be drawn to AS Roma.
