Germany confirm Hansi Flick to replace Joachim Low as head coach after Euro 2020


Germany have confirmed that Hansi Flick will replace Joachim Low as head coach after the European Championships this summer.

Flick, who will in turn be replaced by Julian Nagelsmann at Bayern Munich, was one of Low’s assistants during their World Cup winning campaign in 2014.

Flick became Bayern boss in November 2019 and won two Bundesliga titles and the 2019-20 Champions League, as well as four other trophies.

The 56-year-old will now look to guide Germany to victory at home when they host the European Championship in 2024.

“Everything went surprisingly fast for me with the signing, but I’m very happy to be able to work as a national coach starting in the fall,” said Flick.

“The season has just ended and the two years at Bayern Munich will be useful. The team spirit and the attitude of the players was exceptional, and I will take a lot of things with me that will continue to shape my work.

“I’m really looking forward to it because I can see the great quality of the players, especially the young players in Germany.

“We have every reason to approach the tournaments to come with optimism, for example the European Championship at home in 2024.

“In addition, I know from experience that with Olivier Bierhoff [head of national teams and academy] I have a strong and trustworthy partner by my side.

“The important thing now is not what will happen in September… but the next European Championship, for which I wish Jogi Low, Marcus Sorg, Andy Kopke and the team the greatest possible success.

“Jogi Low deserves more than the end of his career as a national coach. “

Bierhoff is also looking to work with his former international teammate.

“I am very proud that we were able to recruit Hansi Flick for the position of national coach,” he said.

“He was at the top of my wish list from the start. I have known and appreciated the human and professional qualities of Hansi Flick from our many years of success with the national team. “
