Flick criticises Super League
Hansi Flick has been one of the first coaches to respond to the concept of a European Super League.
The soon departing Bayern coach said that he felt that despite not knowing the details as of yet, it wouldn’t be good for European football.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said both BVB and Bayern were against the idea of a Super League.
âThis decision dictates that all clubs wish to implement the proposed reforms to the Champions League. The ECA board members took a clear stance in rejecting plans for the establishment of a Super League,” said Watzke.
âBoth German clubs on the ECA board, Bayern Munich andÂ Borussia Dortmund, shared exactly the same stance throughout all discussions.â
DFB against Super League
It was revealed recently that Hansi Flick would be leaving his job as head coach of Bayern Munich.
Hansi Flick will leave Bayern Munich in the summer to take over from Joachim Low as coach of the Germany national team, Lothar Matthaus has said.

He will then take over the German national job after Joachim Low leaves after the incoming European Championships.
It was therefore unsurprising to see his future employers, the DFB, agree with his view and come out in retort to the idea of a Super League.
