Hansi Flick Expects to work with the greater possible tranquility in the FC Barcelona and this involves to make important changes in the day in day out with the changing room. Although the trainer, unlike Xavi Hernández, does not arrive with intentions to implement important changes in the preparation of the staff, yes expects to handle the relation between the players and the press with elder rigurosidad.

So much in the Bayern Munich as in the German selection, to the trainer of 59 years characterised him a cordial deal with the local journalists, although it never had a lot of friends in the means. Flick Prefers to keep a distance between the press and the footballers, armouring the changing room of any leak that attack against the interests of the team and generate unnecessary tensions by unfounded rumours.

Flick Wants to 'cut' the leaks to the press in the Barça

In this sense, the one of Heidelberg wants to put end to one of the main problems that had the Barcelona changing room the past season. The press enteró of a lot of details (conversations, brush, rumours of market...) That did not have to filter and that finish wearing out the relation between Xavi and his footballers in the straight final of the 2023/24, especially in the related with the preparation of the staff for the next season.

From here that Hansi Flick and his staff already are working of the hand with the directive to avoid that similar stages generate during the season. The idea is not, neither much less, declare him the war to the press, but yes keep a distance between the confidentiality of what sucede in the changing room and the decisions that the technical body take regarding the management of the staff. In addition to Toni Tapalovic and Marcus Sorg, the second trainer of the Sub-19 German, Heiko Westermann, also will be one of the collaborators of the new technical body Barcelona.
