Munich (AP) – Hansi Flick is optimistic that FC Bayern Munich can further strengthen its selection in the transfer window that ends next Monday.
“I am excited because everyone knows that the season is not a normal season when we have a game every three or four days,” said the coach of the German record champion in Munich on Tuesday. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and his team would do well. “We try to do what we can,” said Flick. “I’m not nervous.”
Before the Supercup against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday (8.30 p.m. / ZDF and DAZN), the 55-year-old again pointed out the financial challenges for the clubs due to the coronavirus pandemic. FC Bayern “couldn’t take full advantage when it comes to finances,” said Flick. “We have to make sure we do it wisely.” Recently there has been speculation about Sergiño Dest (Ajax Amsterdam) or Max Aarons (Norwich City) as additions. The spectacular Mario Götze variant (without club) had already been discussed.
Javi Martínez, Mickaël Cuisance and Alexander Nübel are traded as outgoing or loan candidates. The Schalke goalkeeper Nübel, just like the French defensive talent Tanguy Nianzou (18) and the king transfer Leroy Sané (24), was obliged to participate.
You have until October 5, after which you can talk, Flick said. One thing is clear: the world-class players at FC Bayern want to win titles and games this season too. The Munich roster is currently considered very small due to the high demands with countless English weeks.
