+++ Flick over Odriozola +++
“We needed a backup. We played a very successful second half of the season. It is clear that you don’t change much after a short preparation. If you don’t have English weeks, you change your team little. He does it very well, trains a lot good. He takes on his role. It is important that we have this option. “
+++ Flick over Klinsmann vortex +++

You have to be comfortable with it on both sides very quickly that a coach is gone, then a new one comes who wants four or five other players again. It is important to find a good balance.

Only when I communicate can I gain knowledge of how the other is doing. It is important to me that things can be addressed openly. We have such a culture at the moment, so I think that is the right way. As long as you win, everything is fine anyway, “says Flick.
