• Barcelona Have Confirmed The Appointment Of Hansi Flick As Manager Till 2026
  • Things He Needs To Get Right In His First Season To Impress Fans and Club Directors

Barcelona have announced the appointment of former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick today. Flick’s immediate task is to revive Barcelona’s on-pitch style, win trophies, and close the gap with Real Madrid.

Fans will judge him by some basic expectations after his first year, and he might find himself in Xavi’s shoes if he doesn’t achieve them.

Let’s look at 3 things the former Bayern boss will need to do to get the fans, and also the club’s hierarchy, on his side.

Implement his Style Quickly

Barcelona Wants Hansi Flick To Replace Xavi As Coach

Fans know Hansi Flick (at Bayern Munich) for fast attacking play with emphasis on effective possession.

Hansi Flick’s Bayern Munich were not just interested in passing the ball around, they wanted to hurt the opposition each time they cross the half way line.

With the likes of Alejandro Balde coming through at Barcelona, Pedri, and Gavi, Flick has a base to build his style around, and Barcelona fans will be looking to witness it sooner rather than later.

Get His Signings Spot On

Barcelona have had financial difficulties for a few years now, but the Catalans will still try to be competitive in the transfer window.

Flick needs to also identify exactly what the club needs on the pitch, and get the suitable and financially feasible signings spot on. This will help him gain the trust of a shaky Barcelona board.

Recapture La Liga Title

It doesn’t matter who you are as a coach, or the amount of experience you have, winning La Liga is the minimum target for Barcelona every year.

Hansi Flick will also need to find a way to beat Real Madrid and other potential rivals to the La Liga title next season.

If Flick can get these things right in his first year at Barcelona, he will gain the trust and the backing of the fans and directors at the club – Also, it will be a strong foundation to build on.
