Bayern Munich Chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is set to have a crunch talk with Former Arsenal Manager, following the departure of Niko Kovac.
“It’s nice to let me explain the story because it’s a surprising story” – Wenger.
“First of all, I don’t have any agent. I am the only one involved in this story. Nobody can talk on my behalf”.
“Secondly, I’ve known [Franz] Beckenbauer, Rummenigge and [Uli] Hoeness for 40 years”.
“The success of this club has been built on its exceptional competency, honesty, discretion and simplicity. We always told the truth between all of us when necessary”.
“What happened? My name came out of nowhere, without having anything to do with this. On Wednesday afternoon, Rummenigge called me. I could not answer at that moment, and by politeness, I called him back. He was in his car going to the game against Olympiacos”.
“We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me that they had assigned Flick to be the coach”.
“He will manage the next two games because they will play Borussia Dortmund [on Saturday]”.
“He asked me if I would be interested because they are looking for a coach. I told him I didn’t have any thoughts about it. It needs some time to have a think about”.
“We decided together we would talk next week because I am in Doha until next Sunday night. This is the true story.”
