Manager Hansi Flick and director Hasan Salihamidzic appear to have a difference of opinion when it comes to Bayern Munich’s transfer needs.

Bayern Munich is in the midst of an injury nightmare, in particular in the defensive department.

So much so that manager Hansi Flick has said he would like to make one or two additions in the transfer window to help alleviate the problem.

He also stated that the club would only do this if the right players were available.

Recently the clubs sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said he was “surprised” by Flick’s comments regarding the need to make additions to the squad.

In an interview reported by Goal, Flick was not willing to address his boss’s comments. However, he did not back down from his beliefs either.

He said:

“I do not want to comment and interpret [Salihamidzic’s reaction].”

“It is simply due to the situation.”

“I see my team and the club, we want to play successfully.”

“That is my focus. I have no problem with that.”

“I have honestly given my opinion and given professional reasons.”

“The injury situation is bad. You can’t influence that.”

“The winter period is there to regulate certain things. It was just my concern to express it that way.”

They have already added a goalkeeper for next season, it remains to be seen if anyone will come in to help this season.
