Frankfurt, 8 December 2022 (dpa/MIA) – Hansi Flick remains Germany coach despite a group stage exit at the Qatar World Cup and is to lead the team to the Euro 2024 tournament on home ground, the German Football Federation (DFB) has said.
The announcement came after Flick had met with DFB president Bernd Neuendorf and German Football League (DFL) supervisory board head Hans-Joachim Watzke in a hotel on the outskirts of Frankfurt to explain what had gone wrong in Qatar.
“We are jointly convinced that the 2024 European Championship in our own country represents a great opportunity for football in Germany. Our goal is to make this tournament a sporting success. We have full confidence in Hansi Flick that he will master this challenge together with his team,” Neuendorf said in a DFB statement.
Flick said: “My coaching team and I are optimistic about the European Championship in our own country. We as a team can achieve much more than we showed in Qatar. We missed a great opportunity there. We will learn our lessons from this.”
