Gradually, FC Barcelona may have to accustom itself to the reign of a new coach in charge. Gone are the days of Xavi Hernandez and a warm nostalgic embrace covering the team. Now, it seems that Barcelona have trusted the qualities of a cold general to lead them forward into the future.

Hansi Flick, aged 59, is the man for the job as per the final decision by Barcelona. The Catalan club has now entrusted the German technician with helping out La Blaugrana in their quest to regain their prominence both domestically and on the European stage.

However, it seems that the former Bayern Munich coach believes that change must first come from within. According to the latest information provided by SPORT, Hansi Flick is adamant about making sure that no news from within the locker room reaches the Spanish media.

He also aims to maintain secrecy regarding the internal affairs of Barcelona and to protect his locker room as much as possible. Additionally, he wants to minimize speculation about his work at the club.

The new Barcelona coach has always been someone who avoids giving the media sensational headlines. With a much more reserved and distant approach towards the media, this coaching style served him well at Bayern, and he will look to recreate that at FC Barcelona.

During his coaching days in Germany, his relationship with the media was described as ‘correct.’ While not exactly friendly with German reporters and journalists, he maintained enough respect and distance to convey what he felt was necessary.

His cold persona is well-known, and as the new Barcelona head coach, he is unlikely to change that approach in Spain.

Now, with Heiko Westermann joining his staff as an assistant fluent in both German and Spanish, Flick hopes to address the media efficiently. The Barcelona coach aims to avoid the mistakes of his predecessor and limit media interactions as much as possible. However, it remains to be seen how successful he will be in achieving this objective.
