The future of Bayern Munich Head Coach Hansi Flick has taken a fresh twist with the German giants stating they “disapprove” of his request to leave the club.
His position at the Allianz Arena has been under doubt for some time with rumours that he was set to leave for the German national side swirling for continually.
Those suggestions were confirmed on Saturday with the 56-year-old expressing his intentions to depart following the conclusion of the 2020/21 campaign after Bayern’s 3-2 victory over Wolfsburg.
However, the Bavarians have expressed their displeasure with Flick’s comments in a statement on Sunday.
It read: “Yesterday (Saturday), FC Bayern head coach Hansi Flick made public his wish to terminate his contract, which runs until June 2023, at the end of the current season.
“Hansi Flick had informed the FC Bayern Munchen AG executive board of this wish during the past week.
“Hansi Flick and FC Bayern had agreed to place the focus on the matches against VfL Wolfsburg, Bayer 04 Leverkusen (20 April) and 1. FSV Mainz 05 (24 April), in order not to disrupt the concentration of the whole club on these three important matches.
“FC Bayern disapproves of the unilateral communications issued by Hansi Flick and will continue talks after the match at Mainz, as agreed.”
Flick will hope to round off his tenure with a second Bundesliga title with Bayern sitting at odds as narrow as 1/500 with William Hill to win the league this season.
