For one year, in the 1984/85 season, Manni Schwabl and Hansi Flick were together at FC Bayern. The friendship has lasted to this day, which is why the Haching boss says: "The Hansi has always remained the same - a down-to-earth, pleasant contemporary." Only one thing temporarily clouded the harmony of the roommates at the time - that was when Flick from Baden was the original Bavarian Schwabl wanted to emulate his favorite discipline: playing cards ...
In the course of the 55 years of his life,
Manni Schwabl developed
a method of subjecting fellow human beings to a character test. Schwabls Masche: “I've gotten used
speed of feedback
.” It works like this: “If someone wants or is looking for something, it takes a minute before he gets back to you. If, on the other hand, someone is currently at a career high, then you often have to call
20 times afterwards
Schwabl's prime example of timeless commitment is
: “Regardless of whether he was
Jogi Löw's assistant coach
head coach at Bayern
or whether he temporarily did nothing - he always stayed the same.
He never made a difference.
Hansi is a totally
down-to-earth, pleasant fellow
who has his
heart in the right place
“Down-to-earth contemporary”: Hansi Flick is not off the beaten track even as a triple trainer - says his old friend Manni Schwabl.

Schwabl and Flick have known and valued each other
since the 1980s
when they shared a room during their time together in Bavaria.
Whereby: sharing only applies temporarily.
"At the time, Hansi said to me: It's nice to
be in the same
room with you - you do
until 10:59 p.m.
one minute before bed rest
." Schwabl's explanation: "Until then, I was mostly in a different room - while playing cards. "
Hansi's look when paying out - I'll never forget that.

Schafkopf is known to be
Schwabl's favorite game
- for Flick, who comes from Baden, it was rather
. And yet he wanted to learn, as the
native Bavarian Schwabl
remembers. “He played once and then said: I won't play cards with you any more. If I pay so much money every time, then my contract is not enough. "You suspect it: Flick lost, even heavily - and to make
, he also had
:" I said to him: Hansi, where you come from, from Bammental - how do you want to be able to do sheep's head there? Just leave it! Says Hansi: No, I want to know that now, I want to be able to do that now. And then ouch did it. "
Smiling, almost snorting, Schwabl recalls
the end of Flick's lesson
: “My advice to him at the time: Just smile when you pay out, after all, money is well spent. Because: You will never do that again in your life! "It is not known whether Flick adhered to it, but Schwabl is still amused today by the ambitious
Schafkopf apprentice from Bammental
:" You forget a lot of things over the years, but
Hansis Take a look at the payout
- I'll never forget it. "
The two remained friends anyway

- which is probably one of the reasons that Schwabl refuses to comment on Flick's announced escape from FC Bayern. The
says only this much
: “I don't allow myself to judge that. Because the other way around, I would expect the same. "
