The commitment of Flick as successor to Niko Kovac was initially intended only for the games against Olympiakos Piraeus (2: 0) and Dortmund. "We are satisfied with how we performed today," said Rummenigge after the dominant appearance against BVB. In two weeks in Dusseldorf Flick will be after the international break for the third time in the responsibility.

But how does the FCB search, which is now quite surprising? Hasan Salihamidzic gave a small glimpse of Olympiakos Piraeus ahead of the Champions League game.

Who will be Kovac's successor at Bayern Munich? Hasan Salihamidzic calls plan
But between the lines revealed the sports director of the FCB but then a lot. Thus, after the Brazzo statements more than clear that the FCB currently sees itself not forced to a coach-quick shot: "We try to make a good decision. We will take our time and not let ourselves be put under pressure, "said the sports director.
And also to the question, if Hansi Flick will hold the post as interim coach for more than one to two weeks, Brazzo said with a positive grin: "We'll see." He added that he had experienced Flick very confidently in the past few days and that Flick had talked a lot to the players.
So it's clear: The FCB will take time in the search for a Kovac successor. So that the Bavarians will introduce a new coach in the next few days, so can not be expected. At the moment, it seems possible that Hansi Flick will remain coach for a long time. That will probably depend on the results.
Previously, Uli Hoeneb had already made a far-reaching decision in terms of finding a Kovac successor.
First report: Conspicuous Brazzo quote after Kovac-Aus: Did he steal it?
Munich – With his statement on the separation of coach Niko Kovac FC Bayern has caused astonishment. Sports Director Hasan Salihamidzic said in a Sunday evening press release:
"Now I expect a positive development from our players and absolute motivation to achieve our goals for this season."
CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was quoted in 2017 at the release of the Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti from FCB with the sentence:
"I now expect the team to show a positive development and absolute drive to achieve our goals for this season."
"Lack of appreciation and inadequate quality of Salihamidzic"
On the net, the doublet caused a laugh – at the expense of Salihamidzic. "The PM for the dismissal of Ancelotti and the PM for the dismissal of Kovac contain the same wording. Unfortunately, you do not need to know more about the lack of appreciation and the inadequate quality of Salihamidzic, "writes a Twitter user.

Curious duplication: Was Salihamidzic not contacted, but his name used?
It may be speculated whether Salihamidzic was not contacted before the release of the press release, or whether the sports director really came to exactly the same words as Rummenigge 2017.
Salihamidzic has been criticized by fans for months. During the transfer period, transfers such as Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Perisic and Michael Cuisance succeeded him only at the last moment, after Bayern's efforts had previously fizzled several times. Even his low standing compared to the all-powerful club bosses Uli Hoeneb and Rummenigge was in the environment of the record champion already more often an issue.
