“He needs to be more likeable!” Oliver Kahn gets advice



"He needs to be more likeable!"  Oliver Kahn gets advice

Stefan Effenberg advised his former team-mate Oliver Kahn to behave differently in the future as FC Bayern boss.

“Kahn was aggressive as a player and led the way – but as a CEO you have to be different to lead your people and your team,” Effenberg explained in his sports1Column: “Kahn has to be a bit more open and likeable, he recognized that.”

The 53-year-old has been heavily criticized by the German record champions for weeks. Among other things, he is accused of weaknesses in communication.

Nevertheless, Effenberg assumes that the former goalkeeper will not vacate his post, nor does he have to: “Kahn will stay, he has a contract until December 31, 2024.”

FC Bayern: New strategy makes “absolutely sense”

The former Bayern professional also commented on the new “FC Bayern AHEAD” strategy to promote even more potential in the club.

This makes “absolutely sense” for him, says Effenberg: “Of course, it doesn’t always meet with approval, but you have to go this route, Bavaria has to move with the times.”

Times had just changed. “It’s different from Uli Hoeneß, when he was 27 at the beginning of his managerial career. At Hoeneß, the door was always open, even when I signed my contract and went to his office,” said “Effe “.

But: “There were maybe 30 employees, now they have 1,200. That’s a different league and a different world.”

The 54-year-old wore the FC Bayern jersey from 1990 to 1992 and from 1998 to 2002. During his second spell in Munich, Effenberg was a teammate of Kahn.
