Munich (AP) – For Bayern President Uli Hoeneb is a provisional sticking to Hansi Flick after the successful start with the interim coach alternatives.
"One thing is clear: After such an outstanding week with two convincing victories, you can not say that Hansi Flick we will now send away and get some who may work only a few months," said the 67-year-old Saturday night in the ZDF sports studio after the 4: 0 of the German football champion against Borussia Dortmund.
The outgoing in the coming week President also revealed that the club was forced to act under head coach Niko Kovac after 1: 5 at Eintracht Frankfurt a week ago. Kovac had lost the backing in the team. "There have certainly been currents within the team that wanted the coach away, so the leadership responded accordingly," Hoeness said.
In the succession plan for Kovac there is "no decision at all," said Hoeneb. "During the talks, which are due in the next few weeks, we will certainly start by talking about Hansi Flick."
With the two victories in the Champions League against Olympiakos Piraeus (2: 0) and against BVB in the Bundesliga, the club has gained time, "he needs to be clear what he wants". The goal must be a "long-term solution," Hoeneb said: "Until it comes to one, I think Hansi Flick is not a bad solution."
