The former Bayern Munich coach signs for Barcelona

Many great people have represented both Barcelona and Bayern Munich throughout history. As players, players like Robert Lewandowski, Arturo Vidal and Thiago Alcántara come to mind. As coaches there is one name that stands out above all, Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola stands out above the rest because he is one of the best coaches in the history of football. Both Barcelona and Bayern Munich are aware of his incredible pedigree as a manager, as both teams benefited from having Pep in charge during their glory years.

Well, yet another Bayern Munich coach will hope to have at least half of the legacy that Pep had at FC Barcelona, ​​since it is believed that he will sign a contract at the Camp Nou in the coming days.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio RomanoFormer Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick is in Barcelona today (Tuesday, May 28) and is expected to sign a new contract as Barcelona coach tomorrow (Wednesday, May 29). It will be an agreement that will keep Flick as Barcelona coach until June 2026.

There was talk that Bayern Munich were considering rehiring Hansi Flick as their new coach. Thomas Tuchel underperformed in the 2023/24 season, so the decision was made some time ago to leave the club this summer. Although there was talk that Tuchel could stay beyond this summer, the German himself has decided that he will look for a new adventure.

Barcelona found themselves in a similar situation when they wanted to hire Hansi Flick, given their outgoing coach. Xavi also performed poorly as head coach at the Camp Nou, so despite his incredible legacy as a player, he was deemed unfit for the future in Catalonia.

Hansi Flick is the best Bayern Munich coach since Pep Guardiola. With two Bundesliga titles, a Champions League, a DFB Cup, a DFL Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup during his two years as coach of Bayern Munich, he has a great pedigree in the Allianz Arena.

Unfortunately for Bayern Munich fans, Flick was not in the long-term desire to run Die Roten. Instead, he wanted to manage the German team, and that’s exactly what he did. It is sad to say that he will not return to Bayern this summer.

That said, Bayern Munich are excited to welcome Vincent Kompany from summer 2024/25.

Do you think Hansi Flick will succeed at FC Barcelona?
