Munich (AP) – For Hansi Flick, the Champions League victory and the triple with FC Bayern Munich were more intense than the 2014 World Cup victory with the German national football team in Brazil.
He was an assistant coach at the time and already had some experience with tournaments, Flick said in an interview with “Sport Bild”. “Now the situation was different, very special: I was in charge of the coaching team, was responsible for the employees, the staff and the team. So it was now slightly different, more intense,” said the 55-year-old.
Flick was promoted from co-coach to head coach of FC Bayern in the fall and led the team to victory in the championship, the DFB Cup and the premier league in the months that followed. For him in Germany, only Jupp Heynckes was successful, who also won the triple with Munich in 2013.
