Hansi Flick’s recent statement of his intentions to leave the Bavarian club was met with ‘disapproval’ by the Bayern Munich hierarchy.


RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann has reportedly been touted as the next Bayern manager, replacing Flick at the helm in Munich.

Speaking to the press, Europe’s youngest manager, Nagelsmann said: “There are and were no discussions and no offer. That's why I don't know what Bayern's wish is.

The 33-year-old further added that he doesn’t wish to break out a speculation tussle ahead of the end of the season.

“I have said I don’t want to start a war with my employers - that's still the case,” ended Nagelsmann

Germany's 1990 World Cup winning captain Lothar Matthaus is also ‘convinced’ that Bayern have lined up the Leipzig coach as Flick’s replacement.

Hansi Flick made his thoughts known after Bayern’s 3-2 win over Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena.
