Germany are weighing up two options as their next permanent head coach after firing Hansi Flick following Saturday’s heavy defeat against Japan.
The nation are gearing up to host EURO 2024 next summer, but their plans have been thrown into disarray following a run of poor results.
Germany weighing up options following Hansi Flick firing
It was reported on Sunday that Flick had been removed as the Germany boss.
The former Bayern Munich boss oversaw the nation’s exit at the group stage of the 2022 World Cup, and he won just 12 of his 25 matches since taking over in August 2021.
The governing body will look to move quickly in appointing a new boss. According to reports from the Mirror, Louis van Gaal and Julian Nagelsmann are among the front runners at this early stage.
Van Gaal previously managed the Netherlands, but his nation couldn’t make it past the quarterfinals at the 2022 World Cup. Meanwhile, Nagelsmann was fired as Bayern Munich head coach mid-way through the 2022-23 season.
