Winning the Bundesliga title with a strong streak, knocking out Frankfurt and entering the German Cup final, the previous defeat of Stamford Bridge almost pre-booked the Champions League quarter-finals tickets, the sudden offseason has no effect on Bayern Munich's state, the Bundesliga giants are enjoying Attention throughout Europe. In the process of leading Bayern's multi-line hurricane, Frick effectively integrated the "legacy" left by several predecessors, not only retained some avant-garde and trendy tactical elements, but also played offensive football in line with Bayern tradition. The low-key masters of Bayern DNA are striding forward on the fast track of making history.
Restricted by geographical and traditional factors, Bayern Munich always regards the competition for the domestic championship as the team's foothold and fundamentals in the competitive field. From Breitner, Heynckes, Trapattoni and Rehagel to Magat, Klinsmann, Ancelotti and Kovac, the Bayern coach who lost in the league cannot escape his fate. , Few coaches lose their jobs due to weak foreign wars. In the 2012/13 season, Bayern reached the peak of competitive performance under the leadership of Heynckes and began to seek a breakthrough in style construction, trying to create a highly recognizable tactical system that can bring victory inertia.
The Bundesliga team has no shortage of champions and gold medal coaches, but they have little experience in leading the trend of tactics. The task of breaking conventions and innovative ideas needs to be completed by foreign teachers. Even if he failed to lead Bayern to achieve good results in the Champions League, Guardiola still became the "first man in the Bundesliga in 50 years" in the eyes of many people. Bild dared to put forward the slogan of "World Champions League" after the summer of Brazil. The contributions of the Catalans are inseparable.
During Guardiola's time, Bayern detonated Internet traffic, and the Bundesliga became a lecture hall for European advanced tactics. Many players have made great progress under his leadership. At the same time, the income, influence and market appeal of the Bayern club have also achieved leapfrog development, reaching a high level comparable to the top two in La Liga. As Guardiola's successor, Ancelotti is not a pioneer, but a master of resource allocation. The attributes of foreign warfare insiders are well known, which shows that Bayern's strategic focus has shifted to the Champions League.
Ancelotti's failure was quite unexpected, and Bayern had to invite Heynckes to come out again. At the end of the 2017/18 season, there was not much for Bayern to choose from. Kovac unexpectedly won the competition with Tuchel. The young coach who lacked coaching experience led Bayern through a season and a half.
Did not lose the Bundesliga title, in the Champions League left Real Madrid, a guest draw with Liverpool and bloodbath Arsenal, Tottenham and other famous games, even so, many people still do not think that Ancelotti and Kovac are successful. In the three seasons that Bayern "waste", Robben and Ribery's combination disintegrated, Rafinha and Hummels left the team, Harvey Martinez faded out of the main lineup, and Lewandoff stood after the new year. Ski and Thomas Muller are also slowly entering the end of their peak period. It is really regrettable that this team failed to win a Champions League trophy.
He has an insight into the details of tactics, and regards challenges and adventures as the keys to success. The persistence of self-belief is almost paranoid. You can work uninterrupted for 24 hours. You can lock yourself in the office and analyze the video for several hours. He often trains. Put forward amazing new ideas, treat every game with meticulous attitude and passionate dedication, Frick and Guardiola are both ball idiots.
Thanks to eight years of experience as an assistant coach, Flick has witnessed the prosperity and transformation of pass control and oppressive play, learned tolerance and flexibility in cooperation with Loew, and knows how to get along with players. Before the seemingly hasty appointment, Frick had already prepared for the first team.
From Kovac to Frick, the change of Bayern's position has nothing to do with the first-line coaches, which has caused some fans' concerns. Bayern’s adventure is well-founded: the Bundesliga is a hot spot for the first brothers in the field. Many teams are extremely bold in appointing coaches, such as Nagelsmann, Tedesco, Sandro Schwartz and Hannes. -Wolf and others were even younger than many players when they took office. The 55-year-old Frick has obviously much better experience than these young coaches.
The "Huang Sa" at the same level as Bayern is led by Guardiola and Zidane to the top, which seems to represent a certain trend. Frick owns Bayern DNA, and Loew has half his medal in the national team. He is Bayern’s Mr. Right.
In the middle of the 2015/16 season, Zidane succeeded Benitez as Real Madrid coach. Within 140 days after taking office, Zidane led the White Coat to recover an 11-point gap in the league, almost reversing Barcelona, which was far ahead at the beginning. In the Champions League, it was the last laugh all the way to open the Champions League three consecutive championships. In the mid-season, Zidane did not have time to brand his own for Real Madrid. His way to success is to quickly integrate the "legacy" of Ancelotti and Benitez to make the stars comfortable.
From a record point of view, Bayern today is almost the same as Real Madrid back then, and Frick's team is even more efficient on the offensive end. Also taking over the mess in the middle of the season, Flick showed a "legacy" attitude and amazing resource integration ability like Zidane. From the first game, Zidane has "mainly played offensive football with a 433 formation, so that everyone can enjoy every match at the Bernabéu". From his first game coaching, Flick has been focusing on high position pressing + rapid advance tactics. Time brings back the rhythm of consecutive wins to Bayern.
Guardiola's handling of the backcourt propulsion system, Kovac's thinking about the overall formation structure, and Heynckes' design of wing attack and high position pressure are all fully demonstrated in Frick's tactical system. The low-key master from Heidelberg combined Bayern's best in the post-Van Gaal era and helped most players find suitable positions and play styles. In this season where most of the strong teams are in trouble and the Champions League lacks an absolute favorite to win, Frick's team has a good opportunity to make history.
In the 2018/19 season, Bayern Munich was crowned double champion under Kovac, and they lost a total of 5 games on two fronts. Except for the first round of the league's visit to Hertha Berlin, which is not scoring, Bayern was at a disadvantage in the first leg of the national derby, the Champions League home against Liverpool and the second half of the league against Leverkusen. When faced with opponents with strong running ability and sharper play style, Bayern seemed a bit unable to keep up with the rhythm. This situation was particularly evident in the 1-5 loss to Frankfurt this season.
After the coaching change, Bayern had two defeats, but the scenes and vitality the team played are no longer what they used to be. Frick's team has regained the dominance of the Guardiola era.
Late last season, Kovac tried to integrate advanced tactical elements such as the three-back and the new three-forward play into the 4231 system, fully approaching the Premier League team in football style. Sane and Rodri failed to report, Lucas-Hernandez was slow to integrate, and Kovac failed to obtain the ideal puzzle of a "scientific experiment", and ultimately failed.
Not only did Frick fail to completely deny Kovac’s experiment, he also found a replacement for these puzzles: Alfonso Davis pushed Koeman (Gnabry) into the penalty area, and Gretzka was in the offseason. Different from the front and back, Alaba has shown amazing adaptability in the central defender position.
Starting from goalkeeper Neuer, he patiently organized the backcourt pass, placing Alaba and Kimmich in the middle at the same time. In order to improve the defensive line pressure and the ability to deliver the ball, he did not hesitate to push the defensive line technology and light weight to the extreme. There are at least three or more matching routines between the wingers... Frick's thinking in building the backcourt is the same as Guardiola.
In order to alleviate the weakening of the defense caused by this deployment, on the one hand, Flick requires the frontcourt players to quickly counter-grab after losing the ball, and on the other hand, requires the defenders including Neuer to actively press forward and compress the third line Distance to protect the midfielder in the backcourt. This has brought huge benefits, and also left hidden dangers such as greater physical consumption and easy to be beaten behind by opponents. Bayern also had similar problems in the Guardiola era.
The offensive is wide open, the goals are dizzying, the lead is easy to do, and the calmness when falling behind. Today's Bayern gives people a passionate and invincible feeling. Flick and his disciples bring back the memories of the fans. The Heynckes era. Frick is very clear about what kind of football Bayern needs and how to balance the pursuit of athletic performance and style building.
Guardiola's coaching of Bayern is a landmark event in the pursuit of technicalization of German football. Some local German coaches have even become crazy on the road to "Western Learning". While assisting Lef in the national team, Flick remained calm. He repeatedly pointed out that German football places too much emphasis on the skills at the feet of players and ignores the drawbacks of personality cultivation and diversified development.
After coaching Bayern, Frick's "differentiated training" idea is reflected in the support of the members of "German FC". Kimmich is in the most suitable position for him, and Neuer has also recovered his peak state. The changes of Mueller and Gretzka are particularly obvious. The two offensive players with traditional German football stigma are in hot state, and Frick's team has recovered the long-lost Bayern spirit. Set-piece defense may be Bayern’s biggest problem at present. Considering that Flick has repeatedly advised Love on set-piece offense and defense, it is just around the corner for Bayern to fix this shortcoming.
Leading Bayern to win the Bundesliga two rounds in advance has proved Flick's ability. The away win over Chelsea has made people look forward to the upper limit of this team. Compared with the era of Heynckes and Guardiola, Bayern's overall strength has declined at this stage. They are more dependent on the coach's tactical wisdom than ever before. The stability and unity of the locker room is equally important.
"As a coach, he is a gem, so talented people should be appreciated and promoted. He has made the team look completely different in a short period of time, playing attractively and being team-oriented. Bayern Now I have the opportunity to have a coach who can create an era!" Heynckes’ evaluation of the juniors is just right. Bayern needs someone worthy of the club’s history, respect for the club’s traditions, be embraced by everyone, and have the ability to pioneer. A head coach who can always maintain a modest and cautious attitude, Frick is undoubtedly the ideal candidate to undertake this important task.
