Outgoing Bayern Munich boss Hans-Dieter Flick not interested in Barcelona switch

Bayern Munich boss Hans-Dieter Flick is apparently not keen on replacing Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman this summer.

Flick is scheduled to leave the Bavarian giants after their final game of the Bundesliga season this weekend with RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann confirmed as his replacement at the Allianz Arena.

Flick is said to be replacing departing German national team boss Joachim Low after Euro 2020 but Barcelona have since been rumored to be considering him as a potential replacement for Koeman with the Dutch manager’s future being under real threat following Barcelona’s dismal end to the 2020/21 season and he could be terminated even before the start of the European Championships next month.

However, despite the buzz and the speculation, Flick has indicated he is almost certain to replace Low in the top job in German football.

“It’s clear I have spoken with the DFB (German football federation,” he told his weekend press conference, as reported via Diario AS.

“Everyone knows what I think about the national team.

“But it is true that things always have to be solved and clarified.

“When everything is ready, I will be able to announce things quickly. But at the moment all my attention is focused on the game against Augsburg and then on my holidays.”

If Barcelona do fire Koeman before next season, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has now suddenly popped up as the current favorite to take over at the Camp Nou. Well, this is football after all and nothing should ever be surprising.
