Hansi Flick’s Bayern Munich won the FIFA Club World Cup against Tigres with a 1-0 victory. This victory saw the Germans complete a total of 6 trophy wins for one of their seasons. This victory includes the Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League, and the Super Cup. It also includes the DFB Pokal and the Club World Cup. Their DFL Super Cup victory saw them take their tally to a total of six trophies for the 2019/20 season. Flick’s Bayern only became the 2nd ever team to achieve this level after Pep Guardiola’s 2009 FC Barcelona.
Hence, the Manchester City coach has made a statement in his recent interviews. The Catalan stated that he is heavily impressed by Hansi Flick’s Bayern Munich. He also stated that he is incredibly fascinated by the fact that the German giants achieved this target. It is not very common to win 6 trophies in a single season and Pep Guardiola’s team was the first ever to do it. Until Hansi Flick took this team to another level and the Bavarians too have joined this elite club.
In Pep Guardiola’s recent interview he has also made a joke as he threw a challenge at the Germans. The former Bayern coach has thrown an open offer to Hansi Flick and his team for a match. The Catalan stated that his Barcelona team and this Bayern Munich team should play a game for a seventh trophy. The Manchester City coach joked, that he will call up Lionel Messi and the rest of his Barcelona group for a match against the current world champions. All Hansi Flick has to do is name the date and venue and Pep Guardiola has stated that he will show up with his men.
While these aforementioned claims are just jokes made by Guardiola, it would certainly be a treat to watch for all football fans.
