Grassau (dpa) - The outgoing Bayern coach Hansi Flick does not want to name a point in time for his decision about a possible engagement as a national football coach.

«I've always said that I don't feel any pressure.

Of course the talks are good, but there is nothing more to say about it, ”said the 56-year-old Flick in Grassau, referring to the exchange with DFB director Oliver Bierhoff.

Flick is the DFB's preferred candidate to succeed Joachim Löw.

He apparently wants to wait for the end of the season in the Bundesliga on May 22nd before anything is announced.

“I have two more games here.

I have a job here to do a job.

It's very important to me because the team is very important to me, ”said Flick.

His “absolute focus” is therefore initially on a successful end to the season with FC Bayern.


DFB director Oliver Bierhoff would like to provide clarity before June 11th. "My dream schedule would be to make it clear before the EM that you then no longer have to talk about the topic at the EM," Bierhoff said on Thursday evening on Sky. Looking at Flick, he said, “I'm positive. Of course you're never sure, but we have good conversations. Of course, he also has to rethink one or the other, so you have to give him time. We would all like him to be our national coach. "

Flick had terminated his head coach contract with FC Bayern early at the end of the season and would be free to succeed Löw, who will leave after the tournament.

"We know Hansi is a sought-after man," said Bierhoff.

Bierhoff has repeatedly emphasized his good, close and trusting relationship with Flick, who was Löw's assistant in the national team from 2006 to 2014.
