The German Football Association (DFB) has accepted to start negotiations with Hansi Flick about succeeding Joachim Low as national team head-coach.
Earlier this month, it was officially announced that Joachim Low will leaveBayern Munich
at the end of this summer's European Championship after 15 years in his post, with Julian Nagelsmann already installed as his replacement.
The DFB spoke In a statement toSID
"It is well known that Hansi Flick is held in high regard by the DFB. We can confirm that, against this background, we will now hold talks with him and those responsible at FC Bayern."
"We are currently not going to comment on the further procedure, which we will initially coordinate internally with all parties involved with all due care and calm."
As soon as Low revealed his intention to leave this summer, despite having two years remaining on his contract,Flick
was immediately chosen to take the Germany job.
The 56-year-old was Low's assistant for eight years before becoming DFB sporting director after their victory at the 2014 World Cup.
With Nagelsmann's contract being confirmed by Bayern, DFB can now easily follow their interest in Flick.
Despite the fact that DFB announced that they will not pay any kind of compensation fee for their new coach, serious talks may need to go down before a deal is done.
