Hans-Dieter Flick (abbreviated to Hansi Flick), is a former soccer player and current coach at FC Bayern Munich. He started playing football very early in his childhood and has already played a number of roles with the juniors. After the juniors, he remained loyal to his last junior club, SV Sandhausen, and played there for the first time in the men’s team.
Other stations as a player were FC Bayern Munich and 1. FC Köln, he was able to complete most of the assignments as a player at FC Bayern Munich.
To date, after his active career as a player, he has worked either as an assistant coach or as a coach. He has maintained his passion for football over the years.
Hansi Flick was born on February 24, 1965 in Heidelberg and has been playing football since he was five. According to his own statement, there were only two options for “Hansi” at the time, so in his hometown he could only choose between the football or music club.
For him, the decision was clear from the start that it should be the football club. After finishing school and getting his entrance qualification for a technical college, he decided to train as a bank clerk.
This still benefits him today, because he is considered a very down-to-earth person both privately and professionally, which should also pay off for him financially.
So his sporting career went from SV Sandhausen to FC Bayern Munich, a big step considering that he was moving from the Oberliga to the Bundesliga at the time. As a result, at the age of 20, he received his first license player contract with FC Bayern Munich, for whom he played around 104 games from 1985-1990. After that, he was under contract with 1. FC Köln, but his career did not go so well in Cologne, as he struggled with protracted injuries during this time. As a result, he played his last Bundesliga game aged just 28 before retiring from active professional football. Flick also played for Germany in the U-18 national team and made two appearances.
There are a few more stations in his coaching career, for example he coached TSG Hoffenheim, was an assistant coach at Red Bull Salzburg and has been head coach at FC Bayern Munich since 2019.
As a player, he was German champion four times with FC Bayern Munich, won the DFB Cup once, won the DFB Supercup and was a finalist in the European Cup (now known as the Champions League).
Flick was already able to record some successes as an active player, and he continued this success in his coaching career. As an assistant coach with the German national team, he became world champion in 2014, third at the 2010 World Cup and second at the European Championship in 2008. Before his career as assistant coach of the German national team, he became champion of the Oberliga Baden with TSG Hoffenheim in 2001 -Wuerttemberg.
Hansi Flick lives with his wife in Bammental, they have been married for 30 years. He was made an honorary citizen of Bammental and ran his own sports shop until three years ago.
He also has two daughters with his wife Silke, the godfather of the older daughter is Lothar Matthäus. For him, his credo in raising children was an Indian proverb that says: “While children are small, give them roots, when they grow up, then give them wings.”
His reaction to the 2014 World Cup semi-final against Brazil showed that he really is down-to-earth. Because when the German national team defeated the Brazilians 7-1, his instruction before half-time was that excessive cheering was forbidden, so he didn’t want to see any high fives or provocations.
Furthermore, after the successful 2010 World Cup, Hansi Flick and his coaching team were awarded the coveted “Bambi” media prize.
In this case, a special prize was awarded to the team around Flick and Löw.
