How Hansi Flick got sacked: Bosses decided manager's fate while he told fans he would fight on......
Hansi Flick was sacked as manager of Germany following a dreadful run of four wins in 17 games for the Euro 2024 hosts.
Huge questions were asked after they suffered a humiliating 4-1 loss to Japan in Wolfsburg on Saturday night.
There had been big hopes for Flick to succeed in the position after a successful time as manager of Bayern Munich.
Flick vowed to fight on after the defeat, but his time as manager of his country ended in a five-star hotel on Sunday in the city where his last game provided an embarrassing defeat.
BILD have revealed that he was informed of his decision by German Football Association (DFB) presidentBernd Neuendorf and national team director Rudi Voller.
The players were then summoned to the five-star Ritz Carlton hotel in Wolfsburg, where they were informed of his sacking before he said his goodbyes.
At 5.23pm, three DFB shuttle buses left the hotel through the rear of the exit of the hotel, with Flick and his assistant coach Marcus Sorg departing the German camp ahead of their friendly with France on Tuesday.
