Flick emerges as the favorite to replace Koeman at Barcelona

Thu 20 May 2021 | 10:53

Earlier this month, Hansi Flick announced that he will leave his role as Bayern’s manager at the end of the season as he negotiated to terminate his contract with the Bavarians two years early.

The 56-year-old has spent spells as an assistant coach in RB Salzburg, Germany, and Bayern Munich before being appointed as the Bavarians head coach in 2019 and leading them to their second continental treble in their history.

The Bayern boss has been tipped to replace Joachim Low as the Germany international’s head coach after their summer Euro 2020 tournament as he has negotiated to terminate his Bayern contract early.

However, according to


, the German has emerged as Juan Laporta’s ideal replacement for their under-fire manager, Ronald Koeman.

Signing a contract renewal with Al-Sadd, Xavi Hernandez has been ruled out of being appointed as Barcelona manager while Eric Ten Hag and Jurgen Klopp have been mentioned as other names on Laporta’s list.
