Hansi Flick is open to becoming the head coach of Barcelona at the end of the season, when Xavi Hernandez is set to leave. The former Germany national team boss has been out of a job after his dismissal in 2023, and has been linked with a number of clubs since then. Barcelona have been one of those clubs, and a move could take place when Xavi eventually leaves.
Flick rose to prominence after his remarkable season with Bayern Munich, winning them the sextuple, including the Bundesliga title, DFB Pokal and the Champions League in 2020.
Hansi Flick open to managing Barcelona next season
The Spanish side is still in the early stages of recruiting a new manager. But, the positive sign from a manager like Hansi Flick is great news, with the offer almost set to be accepted if it comes.
The club is expected to proceed with caution in their attempts to replace Xavi after his shocking announcement a few weeks ago. The Spaniard was able to guide his club to the LaLiga title in 2023, but this year has been very challenging for them, especially considering the number of injuries in the first team.
Depending on youth players and a limited first team budget, Xavi has been subject to a number of challenges. But the critics have still been vocal about the shortcomings of the former midfielder in his role.
While Hansi Flick’s time with Germany proved to be disappointing, his club stint with Bayern still shows a lot of promise for success. And with his attack-minded playing style, he could be a great addition to the Barcelona squad for the coming season.
