Flick admits he made mistakes when leaving Bayern Munich

Flick is currently in the training camp for his country before facing Hungary and England in the European Nations League.

He left the Bavarian club in June 2021 amid rumors that he had fallen out with Bosnian sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, despite being one of the most successful coaches in the Bavarian giants’ remarkable history.

acknowledgment of wrongdoing

“I think I’m going to do a thing or two differently now,” Flick told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

“Of course the conversations would have been good – sitting at the table with each other again to work things out and let everyone express their opinions,” he added.

“At the end of my time at Bayern Munich, there were times when I took the wrong turn. There were definitely moments when I wasn’t fair to the team.”

Flick assumed his position in the technical management of Bayern Munich temporarily after the dismissal of the Croatian Niko Kovac in November 2019, when the team was in fourth place, and succeeded in leading it to achieve a historic treble (league, domestic cup and Champions League).

Under the supervision of Flick, Bayern scored 64 points out of 72 possible points and ended the season that was interrupted by “Covid-19”, before clinching the Champions League title for the sixth time in the club’s history by beating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the final in Lisbon. .

He won the Bundesliga title again the following season, but left the club when the position of coach of the German national team became available, saying he did not receive the necessary support from the Bayern leaders.

“There is a rapprochement with Hassan now,” he explained. “I’m really happy because we were able to clean up some things.”

Bayern support

Flick also confirmed that he believes his former club will overcome his current struggles.

Bayern Munich is currently ranked fifth in the league, after failing to win its last four matches in the German League (three draws in a row and a loss).

“Bayern played unbelievably at the beginning of the season,” Flick said. “After the third stage, everyone thought the other teams didn’t have a chance (to beat him).”
“Now they are in a bit disappointing stage – but they always create chances, and that makes me very positive.”

Flick also endorsed his successor Julian Nagelsmann, saying, “He was an excellent coach. I admire the way he allows the team to play football – regardless of the recent results.”

Germany will play Hungary on Friday in Leipzig before traveling to London to face England at Wembley on Monday.
