Nagelsmann tipped to replace Flick

Julian Nagelsmann is top of the German media’s list of contenders to become the next head coach of Bayern Munich in the wake of Hansi Flick's shock announcement that he wants to leave the club world champions, reports AFP. Despite steering Bayern to the treble by winning the Champions League last season, Flick sent shock waves through German football on Saturday by revealing he wants to be released from his Bayern contract, which runs until 2023, at the end of the season. “It is a great relief for him to have communicated this officially,” former Bayern captain Lothar Matthaeus and TV pundit told Sky on Sunday.
