The Bayern Munich head coach is one of the first coaches to respond to a Super League (ESL) proposal. And, it seems, Hansi Flick disapproves of Super League.
Today, at a press conference, Hans-Dieter Flick sided with the Champions League, which the Super League threatens to usurp.
Bayern Munich have rejected the new league, and Flick disapproves of Super League as well. The Bayern coach has no desire to participate in the new Super League.
Flick fears the ESL will disrupt continental football. Indeed, like his club, all German clubs have refused to participate.
Flick said: “Right now I have other issues. I don’t know all the details (of the Super League), but I support the club’s statement and the Champions League competition,” he said in comments relayed by Sky Sport in Germany. I am behind the Champions League. A Super League would not be good for European football.”
Football journalist Fabrizio Romano also tweeted to inform fans about Flick’s words against ESL:
Another coach, Jose Mourinho, was fired by Tottenham over his alleged refusal to train players in protest of ESL. However, this may not be the reason behind his sacking- Spurs’ consistent poor performance this season might be why.
