Bayern München coach Hansi Flick has commented on speculation that the club bosses want him to work together with Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel at Allianz Arena next season.
Hansi Flick has been in charge since the dismissal of Niko Kovac about a month ago, and a recent report from Bild claims that Bayern could see him working as an assistant coach under Tuchel next season should it be possible to bring the former Borussia Dortmund coach to Germany from PSG.
When asked about Tuchel at the pre-match press conference ahead of Bayern's clash with Gladbach on Saturday, Flick said:
"I think Thomas is one of the best German coaches. I like his way of playing football.
"I can imagine a lot of things, and I have already done a lot in my career. But we have agreed to wait and see," Flick said.
Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has made it clear that Flick will remain in charge till Christmas at least, and the 54-year-old doesn't want to speculate on his future until after Bayern's final game of the year against Wolfsburg on December 21.
"We'll sit down together after the game against Wolfsburg. I'm not interested in anything else until then," Flick said.
