Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge won't rule out that Hansi Flick could stay on as coach until the summer.

Flick was appointed on an interim basis after the dismissal of Niko Kovac in November. Rummenigge has said Flick will stay in charge until the winter break at least, and the 54-year-old might even continue in the job until the summer of 2020.

"I'm very satisfied with the way we're playing. All we have to do now is score the goals, and then we'll win," Rummenigge told Sky before Wednesday's 3-1 win over Tottenham in the Champions League.

"We have planned to sit down together after the last game before the winter break. I won't rule out that Flick could stay in charge until the summer," he added.

Ajax coach Erik ten Hag is said to Bayern's preferred long-term candidate, but he probably won't be available until the summer. The same goes for Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel who has also been linked with the German champions.
