Hansi Flick’s chasing his first Bundesliga title as a head coach and it could come as early as this weekend with three games to spare.
for an eighth straight year on Saturday, Bayern Munich could be crowned Bundesliga champions. However, Coach Hansi Flick expects closest rivals Borussia Dortmund to wait for his side.
If Dortmund loses to lowly Fortuna Düsseldorf, a Bayern home victory over Borussia Monchengladbach will win the silverware later in the day. They will be 10 points clear with three rounds of games left. However, Flick is keen to believe Dortmund wouldn’t screw up in Dusseldorf.
“Every footballer has the desire to give it all so long as it is still possible. We ‘re going to focus on our game we want to be winning. The game is going to be rough because Gladbach is a strong team,” Yahoo Sports says.
Bayern is hampered by the absence of both its chief goal creator and its most powerful finisher, which means a glimpse of the team’s future could be made this weekend.
The 19-year-old Dutch forward exhibited brief glimpses of his potential this season but only played for 191 minutes in the Bundesliga, scoring three goals in that period.
Otschi Wriedt, a 25-year-old Ghanaian from Bayern’s reserve-team ranks, was also promoted to the senior squad for the match at Allianz Arena. Otschi Wriedt, a 25-year-old Ghanaian from Bayern’s reserve-team ranks, was also promoted to the senior squad for the match at Allianz Arena.
Flick says he has “one or two options” to replace Muller and Lewandowski, and he was confirmed to have spent extra time with Zirkzee on Thursday’s training. Flick said there was an element of tiredness in Bayern’s success during Wednesday’s DFB-Pokal win over Eintracht Frankfurt, but stressed that his team “would like to continue.”
This season, with a cup final against Bayer Leverkusen on July 4 followed by the awaited Champions League finish in August, there’s a possible treble to them.
On Friday, Flick spoke about Muller’s leadership qualities, and how they might be missed, suggesting the team should come together to share responsibility.
