Hansi Flick to succeed Joachim Low as Germany's manager after Euro 2020

Flick has signed a three-year deal and will become Germany boss after the European Championships.

Soccer's worst kept secret has been let out the bag.

Hansi Flick will replace Joachim Low as Germany's boss after the 2020 European Championships.

Flick was assistant manager to Low from 2006 to 2014 before stepping down after their World Cup success in Brazil.

"I am hugely excited, because I see the class of players, and especially young players, which we have in Germany," Flick said.

The 56-year-old, who signed a three-year deal with the national side, was at the top of their 'wish list' according to Oliver Bierhoff.

He leaves Munich with an incredible winning percentage of 81.4 percent.

Flick enjoyed a trophy-laden spell at the club and to celebrate, Planet Sport has decided to take a look at the best wins of his 16-month tenure.

Bundesliga - 2019/20

There are normally three things certain in life: death, taxes and Bayern Munich winning the German domestic league.

However, following a humiliating 5-1 defeat to the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt on matchday 10, Bayern were four points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Niko Kovac ultimately lost his job and rather than turn to the tried and tested Jupp Heynckes, Flick - Kovac's right-hand man - was promoted on an interim basis in November.

After a promising start, Flick was announced as manager until the end of the season.

Flick would guide Bayern to their 30th title and win it by some margin with Dortmund 14 points behind in second place.

Robert Lewandowski scored 34 goals and claimed the prize as Bundesliga's top goal scorer in 2019/20.

in doing so, became the first player since all-time leading Bundesliga marksman Gerd Müller to win the award for a third successive season.

Champions League 2019/20

Europe's elite competition resumed following a short break because of the global pandemic but in a different format.

The competition had changed its traditional two-legged ties to a single-elimination tournament from the quarter-finals.

All of the fixtures took place in Lisbon and Bayern started in emphatic style, thrashing Lionel Messi's Barcelona 8-2.

After overcoming Lyon 3-0 in the semi-finals, Flick's men collided with Paris Saint-Germain in the final.

The big talking point before the game was Flick's team selection after deciding to give Kingsley Coman the nod.

The French winger had endured an injury-hit season and was expected to make the bench, forcing Flick to justify his decision.

"Kingsley came through the ranks at PSG and that might provide extra motivation," he said.

It proved to be a masterstroke with Coeman scoring the only goal in the Champions League final to earn Bayern their sixth European Cup.

They were the first team in European history to lift the trophy with a 100 percent win record.

12 months of success

Flick followed on from his historic treble-winning season by lifting the UEFA Super Cup and DFL Supercup in 2020.

He added another triumph in UEFA's Club World Cup, beating Mexican outfit UANL 1-0 in the final.

Bayern had won six trophies from a possible six - something only previously done in 2009 by Pep Guardiola's Barcelona.

At this stage of his career, Flick had now lifted more trophies than draws and defeats combined (5).

Bundesliga 2020/21

Flick endured a difficult second season in domestic and European competitions.

They were eliminated at Kiel in the DFB Cup in the second round followed by a Champions League quarter-final exit to PSG.

It was a different story in the league though, with Bayern winning their ninth successive Bundesliga title.

They picked up 78 points and scored 99 goals in the process - only more goals were scored in their previous campaign (100) and 1971/72 (101).

Bayern defeated Augsburg on the final day of the season and it left Flick with a final record of 70 wins from 86 games and just eight defeats with seven trophies won.
