MATT-ER OF TIME
Julian Naglesmann is being lined up to replace Hansi Flick at Bayern Munich, club legend Lothar Matthaus has claimed.
And that’s because Flick is set to take over from Joachim Low as Germany boss.
Matthaus told Sky Sports: “I already said two weeks ago that in my opinion, this is Hansi Flick’s last season.
“I’ve said that Hansi Flick is right at the top of the [German FA] DFB’s list.. There’s an offer from the DFB.
“So, they want Hansi Flick and I think – or rather, I’m convinced – that Hansi Flick will no longer be Bayern coach after this season.
“Munich have already chatted a bit with Nagelsmann, including about financial matters.
“Before the start of this season, Flick said that the coach should have a vote on new signings, which I think is right. As a coach, what am I going to do with players who I perhaps don’t want?
“I think it’s got too much for Hansi, and then the offer, the opportunity is there to become Jogi Low’s successor.”
