Germany sacked HC Hansi Flick after humiliating defeat to Japan, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp identified as main replacement

Hansi Flick had a good thing going on at Bayern Munich before leaving his post to become the head coach of the German national team in 2021. His story to the pinnacle of the game has been fascinating, and he was arguably the best coach in the world during his time at Bayern Munich, leading the team to a treble in 2020, including a 100% win record in the Champions League that season.

The former Bayern Munich midfielder couldn’t inspire his team past the group stage at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with the team infamously losing to Japan in their tournament opener. He has now been sacked after another 4-1 loss to Japan in a friendly match.

Germany sack HC Hansi Flick

The DFB has axed head coach Hansi Flick after another humiliating 4-1 defeat to Japan in a friendly match two days ago. Hansi Flick couldn’t inspire his team past the same team they lost their 2022 World Cup tournament opener to, as his team was all over the place in the second half.

The former Bayern Munich manager signed a three-year deal with the German national team in 2021 to become the team’s new head coach after Joachim Low stepped down after the EURO 2021. Flick joined the German national team after a successful stint with Bayern Munich, with the German helping the club win the second treble in their history as they swooped all the available trophies in 2020.

With a win percentage of 81%, he was one of the world’s best managers. He was duly recognized and rewarded with the UEFA Manager of the Year award for his efforts to lead the Bavarian giants to glory in 2020. The loss to Japan on Saturday was Germany’s third in a row, with the German FA deciding to part ways with the former Hoffenheim manager.

Jurgen Klopp identified as the main man to replace Hansi Flick

With Hansi Flick gone, Germany will look to find a replacement for him as soon as possible, and Jurgen Klopp has been identified as the leading man to replace the former Bayern Munich manager. The problem with the idea is that it will take some convincing to tempt Klopp to leave his beloved role as the manager of the Liverpool side that is in the mix to win the Premier League this season.

Klopp has led Liverpool to three wins in four games this season, with his side sitting third on the table, behind leaders Manchester City and second-placed Tottenham Hotspur. Any deal to tempt Jurgen Klopp with the Germany job may have to wait until the end of the season.
