After the impressive performance of FC Bayern in the 4-0 home victory on Saturday in the German Bundesliga over Borussia Dortmund, there has been much praise for interim coach Hansi Flick. The Munich bosses rated the victory as a clear statement, the successor of Niko Kovac to entrust the team after the international break.
It was Uli Hoeneb who boldly founded the alternative "Weiter mit Hansi". "One thing is clear: After such an outstanding week with two convincing victories, you can not say that we're going to send the Hansi Flick away now."
Hoeneb had to be particularly grateful to Flick and the team for the rapid change of mood shortly before his farewell convention in the Munich Olympiahalle. "I always think about the next Friday, when you enter with a 4: 0, it is of course more pleasant than with a 0: 2," said the 67-year-old after his "gorgeous" last game as the club's head. "That's how I envisioned my departure as President, and the team gave me a gift that you just can not have."
For Hoeneb, Flick is "the first interlocutor" for the coaching commission headed by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. "After the best season performance" decreed the CEO: "We will work with Hansi Flick until further notice.He said, the two games against Piraeus and Dortmund are the first finish line, which he has brilliantly exceeded, and now we will be calm He has our confidence now. "
The coaching hunt will not be stopped, but it can be calmly tackled after the performance explosion in the League Summit and successfully concluded with a "long-term solution" that Hoeneb urged. "Until it comes to that, I think Hansi Flick is not a bad solution," commented Hoeneb.
Flick himself first tasted the snapshot, with a "nice bottle of red wine" in the circle of his family. "We were clear about the 90 minutes and the four goals better," the boss judged for the time after the goals of ribbon-shooter Robert Lewandowski (2), Serge Gnabry and an own goal of Munich returnees Mats Hummels.
He did not want to make any demands at the time, Flick said. "I'm completely relaxed there." The 54-year-old pointed out his employment contract as assistant coach, "that goes until 2021". But he also said that he had enjoyed working with the team – "so in function".
Next to him was Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre, groaning: "We were clearly not there, it was far too little." The "men's football", the BVB sporting director Michael Zorc wanted to see from his team, played only the real Bayern guys. "It is always wonderful when the Dortmund come to Munich and we act as today," said Thomas Muller. It was the sixth league-waddles in a row for BVB in Munich – at 3:26 goals. Captain Hummels spoke relentlessly of the difference to his ex-Munich colleagues: "It is a sign for us that we ourselves are not a top troupe." He missed the "holding against".
With Flick's predecessors were obviously many Bayern professionals dissatisfied, as Hoeness allowed to see through. "There have certainly been currents within the team that wanted the coach away, so the leadership has responded accordingly," said the president on ZDF. In addition, Hoeneb said: "The team made a significant contribution to Niko Kovac's not being there anymore, and today they realized, 'Oops, we have to deliver!' And they delivered. "
