Hans-Dieter "Hansi" Flick (born 24 February 1965) is a German professional football coach and former player who is the manager of Bundesliga club Bayern Munich. From August 2006 to July 2014, he was the assistant coach of the German national football team under head coach Joachim Löw.

Playing career[edit]

As a player, he was a midfielder who played 104 matches for Bayern Munich and scored five goals between 1985 and 1990.[1] He later played 44 matches for Köln before retiring from professional football in 1993 due to injuries. His last spell as a footballer was with Victoria Bammental from 1994 until 2000.

He never played for the German national team, but he made two appearances for the Germany under-18 team, in the group stage of the 1983 UEFA European Under-18 Championship on 15 and 17 May 1983, in a 1–0 win over Sweden and in a 3–1 win over Bulgaria, respectively.

Managerial career[edit]

Flick's managerial career began in 1996 as a player-manager of Viktoria Bammental, which was playing in the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg at that time. At the end of the 1998/99 season, the club was relegated to the Verbandsliga Baden, but Flick remained their coach for one more season. In July 2000, he became a manager of the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg side 1899 Hoffenheim, winning the league and gaining promotion to the Regionalliga Süd in his first season at the club. After four unsuccessful attempts to reach the 2. Bundesliga, he was released from duties on 19 November 2005.[2][3]

Flick then worked briefly as an assistant of Giovanni Trapattoni and Lothar Matthäus and sporting coordinator at Red Bull Salzburg.[2] Flick stated that his work under Trapattoni, one of the world's most renowned managers, taught him many things, especially on tactics and in developing relations with players, but also said that he disagreed with Trapattoni's defence-first approach.[4]

He was named the assistant coach for Germany on 23 August 2006. Although not listed as an officially recognized manager by the DFB, due to the sending off of Joachim Löw in the previous game, Flick was technically the German manager for the UEFA Euro 2008 quarter final against Portugal on 19 June 2008, which ended in a 3–2 win for Germany. After finishing second at the UEFA Euro 2008 and third at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, he reached the semi-finals at the UEFA Euro 2012 and won the 2014 FIFA World Cup as assistant coach of Germany. He became sporting director at the German Football Association after the 2014 World Cup until 16 January 2017.[5][6]

On 1 July 2019, he joined Bayern Munich as an assistant coach, under the management of Niko Kovač.[7] When Kovač left Bayern by mutual consent on 3 November 2019, Flick was promoted to the interim manager position.[8][9] In his first match in charge, Bayern defeated Olympiacos 2–0 in the UEFA Champions League group stage on 6 November 2019.[10] After a satisfying spell as interim coach, Bayern announced on 22 December 2019 that Flick will remain manager until the end of season.[11]

In April 2020, Bayern Munich gave Flick a new contract through 2023.[12]
