Uli Hoeneß has made further allegations against Oliver Kahn, but shook hands with the ousted CEO of Bayern Munich for reconciliation. “In retrospect”, it was a mistake to make the former captain CEO, said Hoeneß table football“You have to say it like that.”
Kahn is “a highly intelligent man, the exchange with him is fun,” Hoeneß explained, but: “The big disappointment is that I thought he could fill the office qua his personality alone, but instead he dealt with his surrounded by advisors.” These would have caused “the catastrophically bad mood” in the club.
Nevertheless, Hoeneß would like to part with Kahn on good terms. “I have a lot of respect for the person, he did a lot as a player. Even if he didn’t live up to expectations as CEO, my door is always open to Oliver,” he said.
The 71-year-old also supported President Herbert Hainer’s account of the separation from Kahn, which he had contradicted. “It was not a pleasant conversation,” said Hoeneß. Kahn verbally shot at the new boss Jan-Christian Dreesen. That’s why he was advised not to travel to the “final” in Cologne.
According to Hoeneß, the separation had nothing to do with the end of the season. “We would have acted like that with three titles, the decision had to be made like that.”
FC Bayern want to take their time with the search for a successor to the sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, who was also fired. According to Hoeneß, he should be found by Christmas at the latest. Hoeneß, Hainer, Dreesen and former boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who is scheduled to join the supervisory board on Tuesday, will be looking for him. The four-man council also initially takes over squad planning in close consultation with coach Thomas Tuchel.
