Hansi Flick once again rejected questions about the possibility of him taking over as Germany coach in the wake of their humiliating UEFA Nations League loss to Spain.
Germany were thumped 6-0 by La Roja on Tuesday, Joachim Low’s men suffering Die Mannschaft’s heaviest defeat since they lost to Austria in a friendly in 1931 by the same scoreline.
The result has piled further pressure on Low, who has overseen just three wins in eight games in 2020.
Last month, following a 3-3 draw with Switzerland, Bayern Munich boss Flick incredulously dismissed a question about him potentially coaching Germany in addition to his duties with the Bundesliga champions.
Ahead of Saturday’s game with Werder Bremen, Flick – assistant to Low when Germany won the 2014 World Cup – was again asked about the chances of him taking over the national team one day.
He told a media conference: “Obviously I watched the game, I think I felt the same way everyone did, like you all did.
“I was disappointed with the way we played football, on the other hand, these things are possible in football, sometimes you get run over and, in the end, you have to draw the right conclusions but that’s not my job.
“You know that I live in the here and now, which is why those are things that are too far away from me to even consider.”

Former Germany international Jerome Boateng and Austria’s David Alaba are both out of contract at the end of this season.
Reports say Bayern have decided against offering Boateng a new deal.
“He’s a player of Bayern Munich,” Flick said of Boateng. “He’s showed outstanding performances for years, he won the treble for the second time so we don’t need to talk about Jerome Boateng’s quality here.
“We are always talking, I talk to the players, I talk to the officials, I talk to [sporting director] Hasan [Salihamidzic] all the time and of course you’re always thinking about the future.
“Both players [Boateng and Alaba] are part of this season, we have a huge schedule ahead of us, they’re part of our team, my plan is they are 100 per cent going to be a part of the Bayern team.”
