Bayern Munich have announced Hansi Flick will keep his position as head coach until the end of the season, the club confirmed on Sunday morning.
“We at FC Bayern are very satisfied with Hansi Flick’s work. Under him as head coach, the on-field development has been outstanding, both in terms of the quality of our play and the results achieved,” said CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
“We set a new record in the 28-year history of the Champions League with six wins in six matches in the group stage, and in the Bundesliga we have returned to touching distance of the top of the table. I am convinced that FC Bayern will continue next year where we left off in the last few games, namely playing attractive and successful football. On behalf of FC Bayern as a whole, I wish Hansi Flick every success.”
Flick added: “I’m happy that FC Bayern is continuing to place trust in me as head coach. I really enjoy working with the team and the coaching team. We have achieved a good starting position for the second half of the season in the Bundesliga, DFB Cup and Champions League.”
The 54-year-old took charge of managerial duties of the Bundesliga club after the sacking of Niko Kovac in November.
