He will succeed current coach Joachim Loew, with whom he won the World Cup as an assistant in 2014.

“Everything happened surprisingly quickly for me and I am happy to be national team coach from the autumn,” Flick, who was the frontrunner for the post, said in a statement.

Flick led Bayern to six titles in the 2019/2020 season and also won this season’s Bundesliga crown but decided to leave the champions after 18 months in charge.

Loew, who had a contract until 2022, led Germany to the World Cup title in 2014 with Flick as his assistant, and the 2017 Confederations Cup but his team crashed out in the first round in the 2018 World Cup and has been struggling to perform at the highest level despite an overhaul.
