Hansi Flick wants to leave Bayern at the end of the season.

The coach previously shared his plans with a competitor who could now even become his successor.

Munich / Wolfsburg - Hansi Flick * dropped the bomb on Saturday after the game in Wolfsburg.

The coach of FC Bayern * asks to terminate the contract.

A decision that had been expected for weeks, only the question of when, seemed open.

Flick informed the bosses after the Paris game during the week that he would like to get out of his contract, which runs until 2023, at the end of the season.

Few were aware of his plans until Flick went public.

One of them was the opponent's coach, of all people.

Oliver Glasner from VfL Wolfsburg * could be Flick's successor at Bayern.

FC Bayern: Flick meets with Wolfsburg coach Glasner at the hotel bar

The Austrian has been living for a few months in the hotel where the Bavarians have now stayed. And there Glasner and Flick met for a beer at the hotel bar on Friday evening and sat together for a long time.

"I invited him, he is the guest after all," said Glasner before the game.

A few minutes later, Flick revealed on the 

Sky

microphone what exactly the conversation - which lasted between two and three hours - was about. Is it also about his personal future?

“We broached that briefly, but also talked about other things,” Flick explained

: “We talked about his and my situation in general. We also talked about football in general and the game in Paris. It was an entertaining evening and I enjoyed talking to such an expert. " 

It got really exciting after the game, when the acclaimed Glasner spoke to Sky about his exchange with Flick.

When asked if he knew what the Bayern coach would be doing from the summer onwards, Glasner replied:

“I'm in on what he's doing.

And he's privy to what I'm doing. ”However

, the 46-year-old didn't want to reveal anything, he left it with nebulous hints.

“You have to wait until we say it.”

Shortly before, Flick had announced his departure from FC Bayern, but he has not yet revealed his goal.

FC Bayern: Glasner as Flick's successor?

Austrian has exit clause

Glasner's situation has a surprising number of parallels to Flick's.

Like the Bayern coach before, Glasner also avoids a commitment to his own club.

“The fact is: I have a contract with VfL Wolfsburg until 2022.

The fact is: I haven't spoken to any other club.

The fact is: I wasn't contacted by a single other club, ”the 46-year-old told ZDF.

It is also a fact that there have been quarrels between Glasner and VfL managing director Jörg Schmadtke in the past, which almost led to a falling out last year.

At Bayern, the dispute with sports director Hasan Salihamidzic is said to have been the main cause of Flick's desire for change.

In his second season in the Bundesliga, Glasner is well on the way to qualifying for the Champions League with the Wolves. No wonder that the coach of the third in the table aroused the desires of the competition. In all likelihood, an attractive position will now be available at FC Bayern. "I don't know what Oliver is doing, so I can't answer that question for you," Flick said, keeping a low profile. Glasner's advantage: unlike another candidate, he has an exit clause.
