Biography Hansi Flick

Manager and head coach FC Barcelona.

German Hans-Dieter "Hansi" Flick (born 24 February 1965) is the new head coach of FC Barcelona's football men’s first team with a contract from from June 2024 to 30 June 2026. He replaces Xavi Hernandez. Flick was a player at SV Sandhausen, Bayern Munich and FC Köln. He began his managerial career at fourth-division club Victoria Bammental as a player-manager. In 2000, he was appointed manager of fellow fourth-division side 1899 Hoffenheim, with whom he gained promotion to the Regionalliga Süd, before departing in 2005. Between 2006 and 2014, he was the assistant coach of Germany under manager Joachim Löw as they won the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and subsequently served as sporting director of the German Football Association until 2017.

Flick rejoined Bayern Munich as an assistant coach in 2019 and became interim manager following the departure of Niko Kovač in November 2019. He was later appointed permanently, and won the UEFA Champions League that season, completing the club's second continental treble. In 2021, he also led the side to a FIFA Club World Cup and another Bundesliga title. Alongside former FC Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola, he is one of only two managers in the world to achieve a sextuple with their team. Flick led Bayern to winning the Bundesliga, the German Cup and the Champions League, the German Super Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup, repeating a feat only previously achieved by Pep Guardiola’s FC Barcelona team in 2009. He later replaced Löw in charge of the Germany national team in 2021, leading the team to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, before being dismissed in 2023 following a run of disappointing results.
