Germany set to sack Hansi Flick following poor run of results

Hansi Flick will reportedly be relieved of his duties as Germany manager later today, according to BILD.

Since replacing Joachim Low in August 2021, Flick has picked up just 12 wins from 25 matches. His team has been beaten in four of the most recent five games.

The most recent of those defeats came against Japan yesterday, as Die Mannschaft suffered their heaviest loss in three years.

Flick insisted that he remains the right man to lead Germany forward in the aftermath of a 4-1 thrashing.

“I know in football there is a dynamic, and I cannot forecast what will happen, but from my side, we try everything to prepare the team well,” the 58-year-old was quoted as saying by ESPN.

“I think we are doing a good job, and I think I am the right man for the job.

“We have to go through this together; we are one team.

“We lost heavily today, but we have to shake it off and be different against France.”

However, it is now highly unlikely that Flick will be in charge of Germany when they welcome France to the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday.

Rudi Voller is expected to take the reins, while Julian Nagelsmann remains the favourite to be handed the job permanently.

Nagelsmann is currently without a job since he was sacked by Bayern Munich in favour of Thomas Tuchel, who had also been linked with the Germany job in the past.

The 36-year-old has since been approached by Premier League duo Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, albeit all to no avail.

With less than 12 months left before they host the 2024 European Championship, Germany must get their house to avoid another embarrassing exit from a major tournament.
