Bayern Munich secured a place to the EuroLeague postseason for the first time in the history of the club, and the team’s president Herbert Hainer praised Andrea Trinchieri for that.

The German club’s executive expressed his willingness to start contract extension talks with the Italian head coach, who has done impressive work in Munich.

“Both sides agreed in the summer to focus first on this season,” Hainer noted regarding the current contract, “As a result, we are on a great path. We especially like his detailed and passionate work.

And through our conversations, I get the impression that he also likes it very much here in Munich. I don’t think we are the only side wanting to meet soon and talk about working together beyond this season.”

Bayern is currently occupying the sixth place in the EuroLeague standings having secured a place in the competition’s playoff round, which is set to begin at mid-April.
