On 12 May 1990 - in the 3-0 home win over Borussia Dortmund - Hansi Flick made his last appearance as a player for FC Bayern before continuing his career at 1. FC Köln. The midfield dynamo wore the record champions' shirt 139 times, scoring seven goals and winning four German championships, and also enjoying a DFB Cup win. In gratitude for these achievements, Flick was presented with a special voucher at the Olympic Stadium to say goodbye by then general manager Uli Hoeneß and club president Fritz Scherer.

This included a flight from Cologne to Munich, a training session 'with the current German champions' and a visit to a beer garden with his former teammates. "As a small dig, you can see there was a reference to the 'German Champions FC Bayern' on the voucher, because that was exactly our goal with 1. FC Köln. However, that didn't happen," reminisced the 54-year-old.

Flick continued: "I've never redeemed the voucher, but maybe it's time to claim the part with the visit to a beer garden. As well as Raimond Aumann, Hans Pflügler and Klaus Augenthaler, there are enough players from back then who are still with FC Bayern today - and I wouldn't have to fly in from Cologne."
