The Euro 2024 hosts are after a new boss after acting following 4-1 loss to Japan
Hansi Flick's time in charge of the German national football team has come to an end. The decision was precipitated by Germany's painful 1-4 defeat to Japan, which proved to be the final straw in a disappointing period, both at the World Cup in Qatar and over the course of the calendar year, with just one win in six matches.
The World Cup setback and the team's generally unsatisfactory performance under Flick have led to an accelerated search for a new coach who can instill confidence in the German team.
Several names are already being bandied about as possible replacements, AS reports. Among the candidates are Matthias Sammer, Oliver Glasner and even Rudi Völler, the German national team's sporting director, who could take on a more active role.
In addition, prominent names such as Louis van Gaal and Zinedine Zidane have been mentioned in the list of possible candidates. These changes in the dugout reflect the German Football Association's determination to get the national team back on track and look for strong leadership for the future.
A final decision on Germany's future following the sacking of Hansi Flick is expected in the coming days, as the country seeks to restore its reputation in international football and return to the top of the game at upcoming tournaments.
Germany host the European Championships next summer and next play France on Tuesday in a friendly.
