‘Let’s be open and inquisitive!’

Postby FCBayernNews » Wed Apr 29, 2020 10:35 am

As a head coach, the concept of a team is important to Hansi Flick. In an interview with club magazine ‘51’, he discusses questions of style, professional development and FC Bayern’s ambition.

Hansi Flick: The Interview 

Herr Flick, you’ve signed a contract extension with Bayern, becoming permanent head coach at a top club at the age of 55. Are you something of a late developer?

(laughs) “Well, my career has perhaps been a little unusual. For example, I ran a sports shop for over 20 years, working in the shop myself. I took my time back then and wanted to secure my future, although I always knew I wanted to be a coach. I wouldn’t want to have missed out on any of them. I learnt a lot everywhere, and it characterises my work today.”

Before you joined Bayern, you spent some time as a guest at a number of top European clubs.

“During my time with the DFB, first as a coach and then as sporting director, I visited a lot of academies, including at Real Madrid and Barcelona. I spent three days as a guest observing training at Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. I even came to take a look at Bayern, by the way. I visited Arsenal’s training camp in Austria three summers in a row. I thought to myself: Take a good look at all this! This coach thinks things over a lot - how can you absorb this for yourself? My philosophy was never to copy things 1:1. But I did appreciate getting new ideas and stimuli. More and more.”

At the beginning of April, Hansi Flick extended his contract as coach with Bayern until 30 June 2023. Get all the details here:
