Bayern Munich have hit out at Hansi Flick for announcing his desire to leave the club at the end of the season – and insist talks have not yet been agreed about his exit.
On Saturday night, the German made the shock announcement that he wants to quit the German champions following this season despite having two more years left on his contract.
While Bayern confirmed that the head coach announced his desire to leave during the week, the board of directors revealed talks were set for after the match against Mainz on April 24 – and that Flick has not yet quit.

Flick revealed he wants his Bayern Munich contract to be terminated at the end of the season
The statement read: ‘FC Bayern disapproves of the now one-sided communication by Hansi Flick and will follow the talks as they did after the game in Mainz.
‘Hansi Flick informed the board of directors of Bayern Munich about this request (to leave) during the week.
‘Hansi Flick and FC Bayern had the opportunity to focus on the games against VfL Wolfsburg, Bayer 04 Leverkusen (April 20th) and 1. FSV Mainz 05 (April 24th). Three new games were not played.’
Bayern Munich beat Wolfsburg 3-2 on Saturday night and dropped the bombshell that he wants to quit when the season is completed and that he told the squad on Saturday.

Speaking after Saturday’s 3-2 win over Wolfsburg, he said: ‘I told the team today that I informed the club during the week, after the game in Paris, I would like to terminate my contract at the end of the season.’
Flick has been strongly linked with the German national team head coach role with Joachim Low set to leave the position after this summer’s European Championships.
Low has been in charge of Germany for the past 15 years and won the World Cup for his country in 2014.
Flick was appointed as Bayern Munich manager in the middle of last season following Nico Kovac’s sacking and led the German giants to the treble last season.

Bayern’s Champions League triumph was their first in seven years and Germany legend Lothar Matthaus claims Flick in the national team’s number one target for the role.
Matthaus said recently: ‘I’ve said that Hansi Flick is right at the top of the DFB [German Football Federation] list, and then nothing else for a long time. There’s an offer from the DFB, yes.
‘So, they want Hansi Flick and I think – or rather, I’m convinced – that Hansi Flick will no longer be Bayern coach after this season.’
Bayern’s victory over Wolfsburg took them seven points clear over RB Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga. The German giants were knocked out of the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.
