The 1-0 victory in Paris was not enough to correct the 2: 3 in Munich: The elimination of FC Bayern against Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League was hardly sealed, as the discussion about the coach took off on.
First Hans-Dieter Flick indicated several times in a five-minute monologue on Sky that his time with the record champions would be over after the season.
Afterwards, Sky expert Lothar Matthäus gave quite explosive information on the subject of Bayern coaches.
Looking at the future of Flick, Matthäus, 60, became surprisingly clear after the game: "I am convinced that Hansi Flick will no longer be a Bayern coach after this season." Flick, whose contract in Munich runs until June 30, 2023 , will sit on the Bayern bench for the last time on the 34th matchday of the Bundesliga against FC Augsburg.

The former captain of FC Bayern also wants to know who Flicks could be his successor in Munich if he left: Julian Nagelsmann.
“Bayern Munich has had a little chat with Nagelsmann, including about economic matters, as far as we know,” said Matthäus about negotiations with the 33-year-old coach of the rival from Leipzig.
Matthäus, who worked as an assistant coach at Red Bull Salzburg for a year from May 2006, still has contacts in the beverage manufacturer's cosmos.
Flick is the favorite at the DFB
In addition, the record national player is certain that the German Football Association (DFB) has already contacted Flick: “The DFB offer is there.
Nobody can tell me that they haven't spoken yet.
You know each other too well.
Hansi Flick is at the top of the list at the DFB and then nothing comes for a long time, ”emphasized Matthäus.
After leaving the Champions League, Flick himself had expressed himself tellingly: “Where are we going, how are things going from here - I always think about that.
Because for me, success is an ongoing process.
For me there is always the situation to evaluate everything, to face new challenges or to consider how to approach it.
Of course I have my own ideas. "
