Despite a terrible World Cup campaign, Hansi Flick will continue in command of Germany until Euro 2024, according to conversations with the German Football Association (DFB).
Following the conclusion of Euro 2020, the former Bayern Munich manager was charged with restoring the national team’s status after two unsuccessful international tournaments.
However, similar to Russia 2018, Germany fell out in the group stage of Qatar 2022, raising severe concerns about top-level leadership and prompting the departure of technical director Oliver Bierhoff.
Flick’s future has also been uncertain, but after discussions with DFB president Bernd Neuendorf and vice-president Hans-Joachim Watzke, he has been confirmed to remain on board.
“My coaching team and I are excited about hosting the European Championship in our own nation,” Flick remarked.
“We can do far more as a squad than we shown in Qatar. We blew a fantastic opportunity there.
“We’ll take our cues from it. We all want Germany to rally behind the national squad again in the 2024 European Championship in Germany.”
Neuendorf stated that Flick has the DFB’s complete support, while also disclosing that a successor for Bierhoff would not be considered until there is a prospective leadership shift.
“We are all persuaded that hosting the 2024 European Championship in our own nation is a fantastic chance for German football,” he stated.
“Our objective is for this competition to be a sports success. Hansi Flick has our whole trust. He and his team will overcome this issue.
“In terms of Oliver Bierhoff’s replacement, we have decided to first consider the future organization of this area of responsibility within the DFB before making a personnel choice.”
