In time for the hot English weeks, FC Bayern is picking up speed. This is also due to the fact that coach Hansi Flick leaves no room for excuses. In terms of personnel, he can almost draw on unlimited resources anyway.
A lot is a matter of attitude, especially in these Corona times. Positive tests, traveling, a game every three days, after the game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday (3:30 p.m.) four away in a row. Hansi Flick sets a good example, Bayern coach says: "Whining is not an option. We have to accept things, adjust to them and make the best of them."
Effenberg sees Flick as Löw's successor
Stefan Effenberg considers Hansi Flick to be the best candidate to succeed Joachim Löw.

For the SPORT1 experts, the FC Bayern coach is the best contender for the post of national coach, who has recently come under increasing criticism.
This applies initially to the duel with Eintracht, which gives Flick one more personal option: Leroy Sané is available for the first time since he suffered a capsule injury to his knee at 1: 4 in Hoffenheim on September 27th. "He made a very good impression in training today and is absolutely an alternative," said the coach, albeit with one caveat: "He's not planned from the start." The 55-year-old still has to convert
due to Corentin Tolisso's red card suspension. There are plenty of options, including one or the other rotation. For example Douglas Costa, who before his three-year interlude at Juventus Turin scored his last Bundesliga goal on matchday 24 of the 2016/17 season - against Eintracht in a 3-0. Niklas Süle could get a break in central defense, Jerome Boateng is ready for him.
Atletico’s Jan Oblak admits he didn’t know who Bayern manager Hansi Flick was!
Speaking ahead of Bayern Munich’s match vs Atletico Madrid, Jan Oblak talked about Hansi FlickIn fact, per Bild (paywall), even the world’s best world’s second-best goalkeeper, Jan Oblak, had no idea who Hansi Flick was until the start of 2020. This admission just goes to show how meteoric Flick’s recent rise into prominence has been. Bayern play the Slovenian’s Atletico Madrid later today and, of course, Oblak now knows of Flick’s considerable qualities — even going on to laud Flick for the work he’s done and many trophies he’s won.
The statistics - unsurprisingly - show FC Bayern as favorites. If a triple succeeds, it would not only be the 700th home win in the glorious Bundesliga history, but the 41st success of Bayern at home against Eintracht, there was no more in any other duel. This is due to the fact that the last eleven clashes in the Allianz Arena always won the Munich team, they currently have a longer series against any other club. Of course,
Flick warns of the task. He attests the Frankfurters a lot of passion, running and tackling strength and a quick offensive game. Then there is the strength in standards, especially through Martin HInteregger. "For a defender, he's an exceptional player on the offensive." After the 4: 1 in Bielefeld and the 4: 0 against Atletico Madrid,
Flick has every reason to be confident. "I'm satisfied with the last two games, we're on the right track and things are developing positively." With the right attitude, the results come too.
