Bayern Munich chief says Hansi Flick will manage the club for the rest of the season

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said that Hansi Flick will continue to manage the club for the rest of the season. The 54-year-old took over the managerial reigns on an interim basis after the dismissal of Niko Kovac last month and he has since helped the Bavarian giants close the gap to the top of the league table.

Bayern recently picked up a 2-0 triumph over Wolfsburg at home and the victory sees them within four points of RB Leipzig, who are presently leading the Bundesliga standings. Speaking after the game, Rummenigge said that he has been pleased with the efforts put in by the former Germany assistant and stated that there is no reason for another managerial change until next summer, he told: "I make no secret of the fact that we are satisfied with the development of the team and the quality of play. The results are also very good. There's nothing to be said against it. Both parties are satisfied. He's doing a good job."

The Munich giants have found their form over the past three league games where they have amassed 11 goals and conceded just twice in the process. A 100 percent record in this record has put them within sight of the top before the winter break but Flick has insisted that he is not in a hurry to sort out his future with the club, he added: "We will find the time to sit down together on Sunday. I'm not in a hurry and we'll see how things go."

Bayern were over-reliant on Robert Lewandowski to find the net for the first few months of the campaign but of late, there has been contribution from different members of the team. Philippe Coutinho and Serge Gnabry have peaked prior to the winter break while there has been the surprise emergence of teenager Joshua Zirkzee, who has scored in back-to-back games for the club.
