Although Xavi Hernandez’s sudden departure has taken the Barcelona fans and players by storm, there is much excitement over the arrival of Hansi Flick.

The German tactician is likely to be unveiled as the new Barcelona coach on Monday and will take over Xavi from next season onwards.

Hansi is expected to bring forth a series of tactical and philosophical changes to the Barcelona setup. But by far the biggest quality he will bring to the table is his mentality and man-management skills.

Goretzka on Flick’s management

A recent report from Jordi Cardero (h/t BarçaUniversal) has offered a consolidated report on the mentality shift that Flick might bring to the table at Barcelona.

As per the report, Flick’s approach prioritizes clear communication and a strong sense of team unity. He fosters a “father figure” persona, demanding but supportive, prioritizing open communication and understanding.

Players are encouraged to express themselves, fostering a sense of transparency within the team. This fosters a positive and harmonious environment but with clear boundaries.

“He prefers harmony, but if you cross the line there will be consequences,” as Leon Goretzka had once stated.

Flick’s dedication extends beyond mere tactics. He understands the importance of personal well-being and mental fortitude. He incorporates recreational activities into training, recognizing the need for a healthy balance.

Flick’s man-management is a pivot from Xavi’s more laid-back approach and less intense training sessions, which were a cause for concern for a certain section of Barcelona players including Robert Lewandowski.

Furthermore, Flick possesses a thick skin when it comes to pressure. He’s accustomed to the intense scrutiny that comes with managing top teams like Bayern Munich and the German national team.

This experience will be invaluable in helping Flick deal with the intense media expectations and scrutiny at Barcelona.
