Uli Hoeness raved after this classic evening of a "dreamlike" final game as FC Bayern president: "The team has played outstanding football from the first to the last second."
"That's how I imagined my departure as president. The team has given me a gift, as you can not have better », exulted the 67-year-old after the 4: 0 of the German champions in the Bundesliga top match against Borussia Dortmund.
A week after the 1-1 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt, the demonstration of power in the German Clásico was also a special victory for Hansi Flick, who quickly brought the weakening Munich back on track. The 54-year-old recommended a prolongation of his commitment as a backup chief, the CEO Karl -Heinz Rummenigge also announced directly after the match on Saturday night. "We will continue with Hansi until further notice. He has done well now and he has our confidence, "said Rummenigge.
What the tedious 2: 0 in the Champions League against Olympiakos Piraeus and the class performance against BVB mean for the further search for a coach of the German football champions, revealed Rummenigge not. After the international break in two weeks at Fortuna Dusseldorf sits at least the longtime Joachim Löw assistant Flick back on the Munich Bank. How long he will remain as the successor of Niko Kovac after this increase from zero to a hundred head coach, is open.
Flick was "completely relaxed." The 54-year-old enjoyed this second evening as a chef, looking forward to a "nice bottle of red wine" with his wife and family. "There is no agreement. I was asked to do the two games. I have an employment contract as an assistant coach at FC Bayern Munich, which goes until 2021. What should I worry about, »said Flick after the 1100th Bayern victory in the Bundesliga.
The words from the executive suite should have pleased him. "I think that Hansi Flick will be the first person to talk to in the next few weeks," remarked Hoeneß, one week before the end of his era next Friday.
The fact that Hoeneß was allowed to jump up and down on his honorary place was due to a great team performance and goals from Robert Lewandowski (2), Serge Gnabry and Mats Hummels. "At the first gate he almost knocked me down the stairs," Rummenigge said laughing after an emotional evening. "Of course he was happy, we were all happy."
That was no one at Borussia Dortmund. "We were clearly not there, a very poor performance. It was far too little, "said coach Lucien Favre. Captain Hummels spoke plain text. "It is a sign for us that we ourselves are not a top troupe," said the 30-year-old. "From the 15th minute it was nothing more, because we were the clearly defeated team. Bavaria was better in all respects. »
