Hansi Flick dominated European club football for a season when he was the coach of Bayern Munich between 2019 and 2021. In his first season at the German club, the 56-year-old German tactician led Bayern Munich to win treble – Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and the UEFA Champions League.
Towards the end of the 2020-2021 season, Hansi Flick told Bayern Munich that he wanted to leave the club during the same period Joachim Löw had announced that he would leave the German national team after the 2021 European Championship.
After the season ended, Flick left Bayern and was later named the replacement of Löw. He took over from Löw after the European Championship.
Since then, Hansi Flick has used his managerial skills to help Germany to win all the games he has led the country to.
In September 2021, Germany became the first European country to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. While on Thursday, November 11, Hansi Flick and his team hosted Liechtenstein at the Volkswagen Arena and Germany beat their visitors 9-0.
The 9-0 win over Liechtenstein means that Hansi Flick is the first German coach to win his first 6 successive games in charge of the national team.
Before the record-setting victory, the German football association (DFB) used the arena to perform the official sent-off ceremony for coach Löw.
After the game, one of the veterans in the German national team, Thomas Müller said the German team has been enjoying a super atmosphere under the watch of Flick.
“You always have to put things into perspective a bit, because we haven’t had any extremely difficult opponents”, Muller said. “But we are there.
“There’s a super atmosphere in the home games. We always wanted the next goal. You can talk about a harmonious evening. That we will have more opportunities after Liechtenstein’s red card was also clear.
On the sent off of Joachim Löw, Muller added: “It’s always nice. I hope we’ll see each other again later.
“With all sporting successes, it’s always about those personal moments. They’re not always colorful, you also have a lot of friction. But the conversations at the table and everything around them that you take with you. Jogi Löw is a top guy.”
Leroy Sane is a success story of Hansi Flick
Apart from the fact that Hansi Flick became the first German coach to win his first 6 straight matches on Thursday; and apart from the fact that he has qualified Germany for Qatar 2022 World, Leroy Sane is another success story of the coach.
Sane who left Manchester City to join Bayern Munich in 2020, struggled to establish himself in Germany’s national team under coach Joachim Löw.
However, since Flick took over from Löw in 2021, Sane has become unstoppable. The fast-rising superstar has scored four goals in 6 games under Flick already.
“You can see the ease is back with him and the way he plays football is just fun to watch,” Flick said of Sane. “He does a lot of work against the ball. He’s developed incredibly.”
