"Impossible to shape an era"

After convincing debut as interim coach of FC Bayern Hansi Flick gets a lot of praise from all sides. The chances of a temporary employment are good. Also national record player Lothar Matthäus raves about Flick, but also finds critical words for the bosses of the record champions.

"Bayern does not necessarily need a coach who has won the Champions League three times and is a world star," Matthäus writes his column on "".


"What Bayern needs is peace, unity, and the certainty that the entire club is pulling together," the 58-year-old is convinced and explains: "I'm sure Hansi Flick will be the ideal head coach If he is accepted, respected and totally supported by the club bosses, he will enjoy it and everyone will benefit. "

The last time was that of outgoing President Uli Hoeneß, Chief Executive Officer Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and New Sports Director Hasan Salihamidzic failed to demonstrate unity on the coaching issue. Curious reports of a Rummenigge call with coach idol Arsène Wenger made the rounds. Ralf Rangnick, who was also traded as a candidate for the head coach post in Munich, is said to have been rejected by Hoeneß and Salihamidzic.

"It must be the solution of Rummenigge, of Salihamidzic, of Hoeneß and be of all decision-makers, "warns Matthew. "For the good of the FCB, there should not be any talk of it being the coach of Karl-Heinz or Uli – that Hasan finds him good, but that Oliver may not like him." That had been the case too often in recent years. And to make matters worse, the public also knew about it.

"This is 'I am I' and not 'Mia san mia'", the German national record player puts in. "This will make it impossible for anyone on the Bayern Bank to shape an era."

Anyone who becomes FC Bayern's long-term coaching solution or has a final decision on it is still unclear. Until then, Flick may remain on the sideline as responsible and prepare the team for the away game in Dusseldorf after the international break.
