After four consecutive wins, Bayern Munich is reportedly ready to make Hansi Flick as interim manager.
Bayern Munich maintained their good form on Tuesday as they scored six goals away at Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League. Die Roten made it four wins in a row under Hansi Flick as they are picking up form the right moment in the season.
Flick set a new record on Tuesday, becoming the first-ever coach to win his first four games at Bayern. He is likely to be rewarded by the club for this upturn in form. According to Goal, Bayern is ready to appoint Flick as their interim manager.
Bayern decided to hand over the duties of managing the first team to Flick after parting ways with Niko Kovac at the start of November. The German club was set to make a decision about the new manager during the international break. However, the wins over Borussia Dortmund and Olympiakos allowed them to stick with Flick for the time being.
The club chiefs reportedly held talks with Flick during the international break. After these talks, Bayern announced that Flick would continue to manage the first team till winter break. Die Roten will reassess the situation during the winter break.

Flick continued to prove after the international break that wins over Dortmund and Olympiakos were not a mere fluke. The German champions cruised to an easy win against Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday. They backed this performance with another thumping win in the Champions League.
The players are working well as a unit, averaging four goals a game under Flick. Moreover, the defense is looking stable as they have collected four consecutive clean sheets. Apart from these two major improvements, Bayern has also improved on the style of football under Flick in such a short duration of time.
Flick’s man-management skills have been lauded by players in the past couple of weeks. It makes no sense to not give him the interim position, giving the club chiefs much needed time to find a permanent manager. Moreover, all the top managerial candidates will be available in summer.

This report from Goal also suggests that Mauricio Pochettino is not a leading candidate for the managerial role at Bayern. The Argentine has been heavily linked with a move to Bayern since parting ways with Tottenham Hotspurs. It will be interesting to see which manager Die Roten eventually approach if Pochettino is not in the running.
