OFFICIAL: Hansi Flick will take over as Germany’s manager after the Euro

BERLIN (AP) — Hansi Flick will take over as Germany coach after the European Championship, replacing Joachim Löw.

Flick signed a three-year contract effective from July 1 to succeed his former boss, who is ending his 15-year tenure after the tournament, the German soccer federation said Tuesday.

Flick’s last game in charge of Bayern Munich was on Saturday.

“It’s a wonderful thing that Hansi Flick is returning to the federation as national team coach,” federation vice president Peter Peters said. “He has developed as a person and as a coach since his already successful time here — not only shown by his fantastic success with FC Bayern.”

Flick was Löw’s assistant from 2006-14, when they helped Germany win the World Cup in Brazil. He left to become the federation’s sporting director through 2017, and then took over at Hoffenheim.

The 56-year-old Flick most recently led Bayern to two Bundesliga titles, a Champions League victory and German Cup success. He informed the Bavarian club in April that he wished to leave.
