Hansi Flick confirms he has been in contact with the DFB (German Football Association) and that it is only now a matter of the final few details before he becomes the Germany national team head coach.

Flick has been a hot candidate for the Germany job ever since Joachim Low announced his decision to step down from his position after this summer’s European tournament.

The former Hoffenheim boss, after winning seven trophies in just over a year-and-a-half in charge, is set to leave the Allianz Arena after this season. He will be replaced by RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann at Bayern.

The 56-year-old has lately been linked with taking charge of Barcelona but he has now essentially poured cold water over those speculations.

“I’ve talked to the DFB and everyone knows how I feel about the national team,” Flick told his pre-match press conference ahead of Bayern’s match against Augsburg, via Goal.

“But it is also the case that these things always have to be settled when it comes to the small things.
