Barcelona has announced the appointment of Hansi Flick, the former Bayern Munich boss, as their new head coach on a two-year deal.

Flick, who was relieved of his duties by Germany in September 2023, now succeeds Xavi, who was sacked last week.

Following his remarkable accomplishment of securing a treble with Bayern Munich in 2020, including triumphs in the Bundesliga, German Cup, and Champions League, Flick went on to coach Germany.

Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski, aged 35, previously played under Flick at the Allianz Arena for two seasons.

He emphasized his belief in Barcelona’s philosophy, which aligns with his own, focusing on possession, attacking football, and shared goals for success.

Flick said, “It’s a big honour, a dream for me to sign my contract here.
