The German national team will have a new head coach after Euro 2020. Once the Euros are finished, Hansi Flick will become Germany’s head coach.
Hans-Dieter Flick headed Bayern Munich last season but resigned from his post. 33-year-old Julian Nagelsmann will replace him at Bayern after leaving RB Leipzig.
As for himself, Hansi Flick will become Germany’s head coach. He will thus replace Joachim Löw as the new head coach of the German national team.
Löw, who has managed the German national team since 2006, will leave at the end of the Euros.
With this information being public since long, it is also well-known that Flick has wanted the Germany job after Löw.
Indeed, he used to be Löw’s assistant in the latter’s early days as Germany coach.
Recently, he declared his desire to lead Germany and even quit Bayern, where he spent two exceptional years, for it.
And now, the German Football Association (DFB) have finally contracted Flick. They have hired him as their new national head coach until 2024, as per DFB’s official website.

What Was Said?
Flick is looking forward to embark on a new journey in his career and he commented:
“Everything went surprisingly quickly for me with the signature, I am very happy to be able to work as the national team coach from autumn.”
“The season has just ended, and the two years at Bayern Munich are still having a strong impact on me,” Flick said.
“The team spirit and the attitude of the players at Bayern were outstanding, and I’m taking away a lot that will continue to shape my work. I’m really looking forward to it because I can see the quality of players, especially the young players in Germany.”
Meanwhile, DFB director Oliver Bierhoff commented that everyone at the DFB was joyful to have finally signed Flick.
Bierhoff said: “I am very proud that we have succeeded in signing Hansi Flick. He was at the top of my list from the start. I have known and appreciated the human and professional qualities of Hansi Flick since our many successful years together with the national team.”
