Hansi Flick provides update on his future amid Germany links
Outgoing Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick has confirmed he's held 'other talks' when asked about the prospect of him becoming the German national team head coach.
Flick was widely expected to be named as Joachim Low's successor after the Germany boss announced his intention to step down from the role after this summer's Euro 2020 finals.
The Bayern boss' announcement he would be leaving Die Roten at the end of the 2020/21 campaign came coincidentally just weeks after Low's announcement, with Die Mannschaft making no secret of their desire to appoint Flick as their new manager.
Talks are even understood to have taken place regarding how the German national team would fund Flick's arrival, with a bizarre setup involving a friendly match between Germany and Bayern mooted to be taking place, with any proceeds going to the Bundesliga outfit.
However, with Flick's appointment as Die Mannschaft head coach seemingly on the horizon, the Bayern boss has now thrown a spanner into the works by confirming he's held talks with other clubs and that he's unsure what the future holds.
"Everyone is focused on the DFB, but there have been other talks," he said as reported by Kicker. "What concerns the future is far from being decided. I'll wait and see what comes in the end. Let's see how it goes from here."
Despite seeming to pour cold water over the rumours he's on the verge of being announced as the new national team head coach, Flick did add that it would be an honour to manage Germany and that he thoroughly enjoyed his time with Die Mannschaft when assistant to Low between 2006-2014.
"National coach is something special," he added. "You have a team with the best players from Germany. I was closely involved for a long time, had a very, very nice and good time there and I know what to expect. Just wait and see what comes in the end."
