The decision was made by the German Football Association (DFB) after a meeting held on Sunday, September 10, 2023.

Flick, who took over from Joachim Löw after the 2022 World Cup, had a difficult start to his tenure, with Germany failing to qualify for the Nations League finals and finishing second in their World Cup qualifying group. The team’s form continued to decline, with losses to France and Italy in the Nations League and a defeat to England in a friendly.

The final straw came in the match against Japan, where Germany was jeered by its home crowd as they slumped to a 4-1 loss. Flick had vowed to “fight on” as Germany coach, but it was not enough to save his job.

Who is Hansi Flick?

Hansi Flick is a well-known figure in football. He was the main man, the head coach, of Germany’s national football team. Before this, he worked as an assistant coach when Germany won the World Cup in 2014. In 2020, he gained even more fame by leading Bayern Munich, a top German football club, to victory in several tournaments.

Pressure Mounts on Flick

The defeat to Japan was the fourth in five games for Germany, leaving Flick under intense pressure. The Athletic described the result as “ein Desaster” (a disaster). Bayern Munich players Joshua Kimmich, Leroy Sané, Thomas Müller, Leon Goretzka, and Niklas Süle were all part of the Germany team that suffered the defeat, adding to the scrutiny on Flick, who had previously managed Bayern Munich.

Why was this decision made?

Football, like most sports, is about results. Coaches are judged by how their teams perform on the field. Recently, under Flick’s guidance, Germany’s team faced several tough moments:

  • Nations League: Germany didn’t reach the final rounds.
  • World Cup Qualifying: They finished second. This isn’t bad, but for a team as successful as Germany, first is always the goal.
  • Friendly Matches: These games don’t count towards any tournament, but they’re essential for practice. A recent game against Japan ended in a 4-1 loss for Germany. That’s a significant margin in football, and it didn’t make the team or Flick look good

Should Flick be Sacked?

The decision to sack Flick has divided opinion, with some arguing that he should have been given more time to turn things around. A poll by Bavarian Football Works showed that 57% of respondents believed Flick should be sacked. However, Flick had his supporters, with some pointing out that injuries to key players had hampered his efforts.

So, what’s next for Germany’s football team?

Big decisions lie ahead. With Flick no longer in charge, someone else needs to take the reins. As of now, the German Football Association hasn’t named a replacement.

In the meantime, Rudi Völler, another experienced figure in German football, will take charge temporarily. It’s like when a teacher is absent, and a substitute takes over for a few days. But this “substitute” has a big job ahead. The next major game is a World Cup qualifier against Iceland in October.

Beyond that, there’s an even bigger event on the horizon: Euro 2024. It’s one of the biggest football tournaments, and Germany is hosting it. That means there will be a lot of eyes on the German team, and they’ll want to perform well, especially in front of their home fans.


Hansi Flick’s tenure as Germany coach has come to an end after a string of poor performances. The defeat to Japan was the final straw, and the DFB has decided to make a change. It remains to be seen who will take over as coach, but they will have a tough job on their hands to get Germany back to winning ways.
