A special kind of firecracker for the title fight: CEO Oliver Kahn and the management of Bayern Munich have once again committed the stars of the German record champions to the championship duel with Borussia Dortmund. At a meeting with the team council, Kahn and Co. evoked memories of the heart-stopping 2001 final, among other things.
“The bosses passed on their experiences to us. That was a good exchange,” said Thomas Müller in the sports picture about the meeting and explained: “The weeks were not easy for the club, for us as a team. That’s why we got together again, talked about which screws we could turn.”
The fluctuations in performance are said to have been discussed, as well as the “Mia san mia” understanding. In addition, Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic reported on the long-distance duel with Schalke 04 22 years ago, when Bayern secured the trophy at the last second with the two professionals at the time. In addition to Kahn and Salihamidzic, the meeting on Säbener Straße was attended by Technical Director Marco Neppe and the team council around Captain Manuel Neuer, Müller, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman.
In the meantime, there had also been a discussion with Neuer, she reported sports picture. In it, the 37-year-old admitted mistakes in dealing with the dismissal of his confidante Toni Tapalovic, so Bayern waived a fine for Neuer’s interview, which was critical of the club.
