"I think so, he has the skill and a high emotional ability to deal with the players," said LOw in the half-time of the top match on Saturday night between Bayern and Dortmund at Sky. "Of course Hansi knows what to do, I think he can."
The previous assistant coach had taken over the record champions after the mutual separation of Niko Kovac last Sunday. A long-term successor to the Croatian does not seem to be in sight yet. A phone call with Arsene Wenger during the week had been fruitless. The Bavarians said the French according to their presentation.
Flick himself had blocked questions about his future before the kickoff. "I'm not interested in that," said the 54-year-old, adding that, with a view to the BVB game and the 2-0 victory in the Champions League against Olympiacos Piraeus last Wednesday, "I have the task for these two games I want to enjoy the game and I hope we can bring that to the place the team is capable of.

Expectations that the record champion must live up to: "This is something that also belongs to the philosophy of Bayern Munich: that they want to play a dominant game, but that they also play attractively, that they play forward, that they can recognize things there that you have in other teams, in terms of technical level, in terms of the speed you do not see in other teams. "
In order to reintroduce a recognizable game philosophy to the team, Kahn recommends "very, very much to think" in the decision-making process for the new coach. Because it has to be about getting a coach who can possibly shape an era again. And I think that's something you can not shoot so easily right now. That's something you have to think about now, "says Kahn, who returns to FC Bayern starting in January.
