FC Bayern, News: Kahn brother goes for FCB

After the dismissal of Bayern boss Oliver Kahn, the 53-year-old’s brother, Axel Kahn, jumped to his side and sharply criticized the club. “Oliver was dragged through the dirt for months, every decision was negatively attached to him. That was too much,” said Axel Kahn in an interview Sky Sports News.

Above all, dealing with his brother in the past few weeks and months has gone against the grain of Kahn. “I would have liked to have informed Oliver earlier, maybe sat down a few months in advance and explained to him that we wanted to separate in the summer.” After all, such a decision is “not made overnight”.

Germany always manages to destroy its “icons. Boris Becker, Michael Schumacher and whatever their names are. We have to have a little more respect overall,” Kahn continued.

The older of the Kahn brothers had previously described FC Bayern’s dismissal as “disrespectful, disgusting and cowardly” on social media. Oliver “deserves to relax now and let things sink in a bit. It’s not about getting into the ring and initiating things. It’s about bringing in a bit of calm.”

Oliver Kahn was dismissed as FC Bayern chairman last Saturday after a weak season with many side-war scenes.

FC Bayern, News: Mintzlaff with plain text to Eberl

After the dismissal of Hasan Salihamidzic, RB Leipzig’s sports director Max Eberl is one of the absolute top favorites for the post. If it’s up to RB boss Oliver Mintzlaff, the German record champions don’t even have to put out their feelers for the 49-year-old.

“The question does not arise for me,” said Mintzlaff in an interview with the sports picture. “Max has just signed a contract with us (until 2026; editor’s note). He seems very satisfied and is currently preparing for the new season. He appreciates working independently in a very pleasant environment.”

The 47-year-old believes that there will be enough challenges for Eberl at Leipzig in the coming years: “We want to be stable in the Champions League and win titles. He can start with the latter in the cup final. That the air in the league is getting thinner , is clear. But should Bayern falter again, we must and want to be closer.”

At the same time, Mintzlaff is certain that Bayern’s weakness will not last long. “I am convinced that Bayern will quickly find their way back to their old strength. Everything is not bad there all of a sudden.”

FC Bayern, rumor: Kahn confidant before the end

After Oliver Kahn, a close confidant of the ex-CEO at FC Bayern is also on the brink of extinction. Again table football reported, the internally controversial Chief of Staff Moritz Mattes should no longer have a future with the German record champions.

Mattes, employed by ex-CEO Kahn, has recently repeatedly caused head shaking and a bad mood among employees.

The future of Marco Neppe, the technical director, is also unclear. This was considered a close confidant of Hasan Salihamidzic. It is unclear whether he will stay with FCB without the 46-year-old.
