Bayern Munich have announced that they “disapprove” with coach Hansi Flick’s plans to leave the club at the end of the season.
The Bayern coach said he had informed the club and the playing staff of his desire to depart from the Bundesliga champions after their 3-2 victory over Wolfsburg on Saturday.
However, the club’s board released a statement on Sunday expressing the disappointment in Flick’s decision to go public with his plea to leave.
“Yesterday [Saturday], 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,” the statement said. “Hansi Flick had informed the FC Bayern Munchen 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 [April 20] and 1. FSV Mainz 05 [April 24], 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.”
