Hansi Flick Preparing for a New Challenge in Club Football After Bayern Munich

Three years after the end of his successful tenure at FC Bayern, Hansi Flick could take on a new challenge in club football in the summer. The national coach, who was fired in September 2023, is said to be preparing meticulously for this.

As reporter Christian Falk reports on the “Bild Sport” program, Flick is currently learning Spanish diligently. Behind this lies the interest of FC Barcelona – a task that is said to be very appealing to the 58-year-old.

According to Falk, Barca have already contacted Flick. It had been signaled to him that he was on the list of candidates to succeed Xavi Hernández.

The 44-year-old Catalan club icon recently announced his retirement at the end of the season. Since then, speculation has been raging as to who will inherit Xavi. Flick is being traded as a possible option.

But the German should not be the top candidate, said Falk. Instead, Roberto De Zerbi is at the top of Barca’s list.

The 44-year-old has been coaching Brighton & Hove Albion since the summer of 2022 and has made a good name for himself in the coaching industry with his strong work there. However, the Italian is tied to the Premier League club until 2026. Cash-strapped Barca would probably have to shell out a transfer fee for him.

Falk only gives outsider chances in Barcelona to other traded candidates such as José Mourinho and Julian Nagelsmann, whose contract as national coach currently ends after the home European Championships in the summer.

A move from Jürgen Klopp to Catalonia is also considered out of the question. The 56-year-old announced his departure from Liverpool FC last week. But he first wants to take a break of at least a year, as he also explained.

FC Barcelona instead of FC Bayern? Speculation about Hansi Flick’s future

When asked about the rumors about Hansi Flick, Barca boss Joan Laporta recently told “RAC1” that sports director Deco said that he had “not spoken to any coach”.

But Barca’s options on the market are “pretty limited,” emphasized Laporta. “It has to be a coach with a strong background and there are certain conditions that the new coach must accept, which are non-negotiable and which we want to maintain, such as our youth structure.”

Flick won the championship twice as well as the DFB Cup and the Champions League once with FC Bayern. This was followed by his ultimately extremely unsuccessful engagement with the DFB.
