The players live in Herzogenaurach in a kind of flat-sharing community, with four sharing a house. Flick wants to strengthen the team spirit. Training sessions are held in the morning.

World footballer Lewandowski had increased the pressure on Monday for a transfer from the Polish national team a year before his contract with Bayern Munich expired on June 30, 2023. “For today, one thing is certain: my history with Bayern is over. After everything that has happened in the last few months, I can’t imagine continued good cooperation,” said the 33-year-old. According to the Polish media, Lewandowski used it to detonate a bomb.

From Lewandowski’s point of view, an immediate transfer is “the best solution for both sides”. The management of FC Bayern insists on the fulfillment of the contract. Lewandowski is apparently drawn to FC Barcelona. The Catalans would have to pay a fee for him this summer. This would have to be at least 40 million euros for Bayern to consider a change.

Unlike Lewandowski, Goretzka has clearly committed to FC Bayern. He extended his contract last year until 2026, under club coach Julian Nagelsmann and under Flick he should play a central role in the coming months. WORLD asked Goretzka: Where is the national team? “Based on the past few years, you can’t say that we’re among the best in the world,” he replied. “But we want to go back there.” The games in the Nations League are a good indicator.

Despite all the appreciation, Flick does not guarantee that Goretzka will be used. In midfield, young star Jamal Musiala is putting pressure on his established club colleagues Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich, both of whom have had a difficult second half of the season.

Goretzka was out injured for a long time, now he feels in great shape again and has full confidence in his body. “Our whole team is of such good quality that it would be fatal for the coach to give someone a starting eleven guarantee,” said Goretzka. “I wouldn’t put the handcuffs on myself either.”

The training in Herzogenaurach is intense. “That’s what Hansi wants to see,” says Goretzka. “That we push ourselves. It is precisely this competitive situation in training that makes us better.” He spoke of “absolute power football” under Flick, which “was a lot of fun for us on the pitch and also for the spectators”. He wants to convey this joy again with his colleagues in the game against European champions Italy.
