FC Bayern - Oliver Kahn out and Uli Hoeneß coming back?  Speculations about FCB tremors

The CEO Oliver Kahn is apparently up for grabs internally at Bayern Munich. After TV expert Jan Aage Fjörtoft made corresponding assumptions on Thursday morning, the also reports Picture of discussions about Kahn’s future.

According to the tabloid newspaper, a premature end to the chairman of the board at FC Bayern cannot be ruled out. Fjörtoft had previously written about an “ongoing process” on Twitter. Accordingly, it is only “a matter of time” before Kahn is removed from his post. Since taking office in the summer of 2021, he has failed to “convince the members”.

In the course of the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester City on Wednesday (1-1), Kahn, like the entire club management, was attacked by the active fan scene in the south stand. “Goals may be missed, values ​​not! Question management policy!”, emblazoned on a huge banner. Another read: “Brazzo + Kahn: Heroes of yesteryear, whistles of today.”

According to his own statement, Kahn “constantly questions himself”, but the criticism of the fans “does not do much” with his state of mind. The club management is accused of the circumstances of the change of coach from Julian Nagelsmann to Thomas Tuchel and a failed squad planning. The departure of Robert Lewandowski last summer was not compensated accordingly. After losing the Champions League and the DFB Cup, FC Bayern only has more chances of winning a title. The lead over Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga is only two points.

As a long-term successor to Kahn, Fjörtoft is talking about ex-captain Philipp Lahm (39), who is currently head of the organizing committee for the EM 2024 in Germany. President Herbert Hainer Kahn could succeed Kahn on an interim basis, but Uli Hoeneß’s return to operational business is also conceivable. After many years as manager and president, the 71-year-old has served as honorary president and member of the supervisory board since 2019.

After the Champions League, Hoeneß visited the team dressing room. “He was also happy with the game. He spoke positively to the team because we’re on the right track,” said sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic. According to Fjörtoft, Salihamidzic’s position is secure and he continues to enjoy Hoeneß’s support.
