Hansi Flick, who has resigned as Bayern Munich manager at the end of the season, will take over as coach of Germany’s national team from Joachim Lowe after Euro 2020. The German Football Federation (DFB) has announced.
“Everything went surprisingly fast, but I’m very happy to have been coaching Germany since the autumn,” said Flick, 56, after signing a three-year contract to succeed Lowe.
“I am extremely excited because I see the class of players and especially the young players we have in Germany.”
Fick served as Lowe’s assistant coach during the 2014 World Cup in Germany and was a favorite for the role. Lowe will leave after serving as national team coach for 15 years.
“He was at the top of my wish list from the start,” said national team director Oliver Bierhof.
Flick, on the other hand, took on from Niko Kovac as Bayern’s manager in the middle of the season, after Kovac had a pathetic outing with the team. Flick then led the team to their historic second treble by the end of the 2020 season.
