Although he is on his way to defending the title in Germany, Hans Dieter Flick has already decided to leave the ranks of Bayern Munich at the end of the season. After the victory over Wolfsburg, he pointed out that he had already announced his decision to the players and leaders of the club and that he would not sit on the bench of the German giant from the summer.
The Bavarians have already won six trophies on the bench with Flick, picked up all possible silver last year, and they are on their way to winning more trophies, as they gained seven points more than the second-placed RB Leipzig on the Bundesliga table after the triumph over Wolfsburg.
However, they were eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, and the German expert said after the game with the Wolves in the 29th round of the championship that he had informed the players and the club about his desire to terminate the contract at the end of the season.
"I have already told the team that I would like to terminate my contract this summer. I informed those responsible about my decision after being relegated from the Champions League last week. I wanted to personally inform everyone.
I would like to thank the club that gave me the opportunity to lead this team " The Bayern coach is contractually bound to the club until the summer of 2023, but he did not want to reveal the reasons for the early parting.
"These are things I've talked about internally with those in charge and it will stay that way for a while."

It was also written about his conflict with the sports director Hasan Salihamidžić, but also about the fact that he will succeed Joachim Low on the bench of the German national team this summer.
Flick does not hide that this is an option. "Of course it's an option, but I have to see everything first. The last couple of weeks have not been easy for me. That's why the whole process, to tell the club and of course, my players have been very important to me."
As things stand, Flick is leaving Bayern, although the club has not yet announced. However, it seems that it has been firmly resolved and the chances of changing the mind are not so big. The impression is that he will really take over the coaching function from Low, who has already announced his departure from the ranks of the German national team after the end of the European Championship.
This outcome was recently announced by Lothar Mattheus. "This was Hansi Flick's last game on the Bayern bench in the Champions League. He is the first option to succeed Joachim Low on the national team bench and he will accept the offer in the summer," Mattheus said shortly after Bayern's failure in the Champions League in the middle of the week.
