Flick was promoted from the coaching staff after Niko Kovac’s dismissal, following

Bayern Munich’s 5-1 thrashing away to Eintracht Frankfurt last month.

He was initially hired for two matches, against Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions

League and against Borussia Dortmund in the league.

But after two wins he was trusted to continue until the winter break.

Following Bayern Munich’s 2-0 win at home to VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday, CEO Karl-

Heinz Rummenigge and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic agreed that continuing

with Flick is “explicitly a viable option”.

“Under him as head coach, the on-field development has been outstanding, both in

terms of the quality of our play and the results achieved.

“We set a new record in the 28-year history of the UEFA Champions League with six

wins in six matches in the group stage, and in the Bundesliga, we have returned to

the touching distance of the top of the table,” Rummenigge said in a statement.

Bayern Munich currently sits third in the Bundesliga standings, four points behind

leaders RB Leipzig ahead of the mid-season break, and have been drawn against

Chelsea in the Champions League last 16.

intensively for the second half of the season at the training camp.

“Then, we’ll try to achieve as many victories and titles as possible, ”Flick

said.
