Bayern Munich has rejected a request from head coach, Hansi Flick, to leave the club 18 months after he was appointed as the babarian side coach.

Flick had on Saturday made it publicly that he wants to terminate his contract, which runs until June 2023, at the end of the current season.

In view of this, Hansi Flick and FC Bayern had agreed to place the focus on the matches against VfL Wolfsburg, Bayer 04 Leverkusen (20 April) and 1. FSV Mainz 05 (24 April), in order not to disrupt the concentration of the whole club on these three important matches.

A statement on the club’s website: “FC Bayern head coach Hansi Flick made public his wish to terminate his contract, which runs until June 2023, at the end of the current season.

“Hansi Flick had informed the FC Bayern München AG executive board of this wish during the past week. Hansi Flick and FC Bayern had agreed to place the focus on the matches against VfL Wolfsburg, Bayer 04 Leverkusen (20 April) and 1. FSV Mainz 05 (24 April), in order not to disrupt the concentration of the whole club on these three important matches.

“FC Bayern disapproves of the unilateral communications issued by Hansi Flick and will continue talks after the match at Mainz, as agreed.”

Flick’s announcement came days after Bayern were eliminated from the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain and amid reports he is set to replace Joachim Low as Germany boss this summer.

Flick has been considered the top candidate to replace Low after the Germany boss confirmed he will step down after Euro 2020
