The world is waiting for the much-anticipated final of the UEFA Champions League. This season, Hansi Flick has been a revolution for Bayern Munich, who, at one point, lost their soul. But as soon as Flick took over, Bayern became a brut force. They simply steamrolled their opponents in the knockout stages. Now, they are in the finals and all eyes would be on the German Giants of how they treat the French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

 

While talking to the media Flick expressed his opinion.

Here are the excerpts:

On PSG

We’re facing Paris and we’re excited to meet one of the best teams in the world. They have a great coach and a fantastic philosophy.”I appreciate Thomas Tuchel both as a person and as a coach.

On Bayern Munich’s style of play

Our style is defined by moving the lines forward. The important thing is that we focus our pressure on the ball. We went back and analyzed our games against Barcelona and Lyon and it’s key that we shut down the passing channels.

Paris have a lot of top players and it’ll be an interesting game, but we want to take our philosophy forward with us.

On the strength and depth of Bayern Munich

[Kingsley] Coman and [Philippe] Coutinho have shown that they can help us when they’ve come on. There have been a lot of games and we will have to take the physical condition of each player into account.
