Replacing Niko Kovac with the unknown Hans-Dieter Flick for the rest of this season was a surprise. However, the German has done a decent job as interim coach.

Bayern have recorded 13 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats in 16 games since Flick’s appointment in November. It’s restored them to the top spot in the Bundesliga and on course for an eighth successive title.

But like Quique Setien at Barcelona, Flick’s true challenge lies in leading Bayern to UEFA Champions League success.

He did well to ensure the Bavarians finished top of Group B with a 100% winning record of six games.

Now Flick will have to prove his mettle in the knockout stages, starting with Chelsea in the last-16.
