DIETER-MINED TO SUCCEED
Bayern Munich boss Hans-Dieter Flick has a date with history on Thursday when the European champions meet Tigres in the Club World Cup Final.
If Flick wins the competitions then he will become the first ever Bayern manager to win the Bundesliga, German Cup, German Super Cup, Champions League, European Super Cup and World Cup in the club’s illustrious history.
Jupp Heynckes enjoyed a sensational treble with the Bavarian giants in the 2012-2013 season but left shortly after the end of the campaign and was replaced by Pep Guardiola.
Guardiola went on to win the 2013 European Super Cup by beating Chelsea as well as the Club World Cup of that year by overcoming Raja Casablanca.
