Despite renewed criticism of Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic, Germany’s record national player Lothar Matthäus does not consider it advisable to dismiss Bayern Munich’s top officials.
“I don’t think that after a change of coach, a manager should be fired in the middle of the season,” wrote the 62-year-old in his sky-Column.
However, he was “reported by several people” that Honorary President Uli Hoeneß “has been dissatisfied for many months with the composition that he has installed in the executive floor,” said Matthäus. He criticized the “communication” of CEO Kahn, who was under massive pressure, which “either does not arrive properly or does not take place as the employees need it”.
Matthäus had already attacked the Bayern leadership in the past few weeks, especially for the circumstances of the sacking of coach Julian Nagelsmann and also received strong opposition.
“Now I don’t feel validated or satisfied by the bankruptcies and the theater. Yes, I have often put my fingers in the wound and criticized and criticized things that I observe. I never meant that maliciously or hatefully,” like Matthew.
