FC Barcelona have appointed Hansi Flick as the club’s new manager.

The Spanish La Liga side announced Flick’s arrival in a statement on the club’s website on Wednesday.

The German coach signed a two-year deal to manage the club for two seasons.

“FC Barcelona and Hansi Flick have reached an agreement for the German to become men’s first team football coach until 30 June 2026,” the statement read.

“The new coach has signed a contract at the Club’s offices accompanied by FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta; first vice president responsible for the sporting area, Rafa Yuste and the Club’s sporting director, Anderson Luís de Souza, Deco.”

Flick’s appointment comes a few days after Barcelona sacked Xavi Hernandez from the role.

Xavi’s relationship with the club hierarchy broke down after his recent public criticism of Joan Laporta, Barcelona FC president.

The club severed ties with Xavi despite convincing him to reverse his decision to exit the Camp Nou just a few weeks prior.

Speaking on his new role, Flick said he was honoured to coach Barcelona and expressed his readiness to repeat the winning record he amassed at Bayern.

“It’s a big honour, a dream for me to sign my contract here. We won some titles with Bayern Munich and my hunger is really big for titles.

“I would like to stay on this path with Barcelona, and I think we can achieve a lot together, and this is an important thing.

“Their philosophy is similar to mine, with lots of possession and really attacking football and these other things I love.”

Flick, who won six trophies in a calendar year as Bayern Munich manager in 2020, is also the third Barcelona manager of German nationality.
