FC Bayern, News: Hainer reports on Rummenigge’s freak out
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern Munich’s CEO in 2014, was not at all happy when Adidas signed a lucrative kit deal with Manchester United at the time. This was explained by today’s Bayern President and then CEO of Adidas, Herbert Hainer, on Wednesday at the DFL General Assembly in Dortmund, where he gave a laudation on Rummenigge. This was awarded honorary membership of the DFL.
From 2014, United received one billion euros from Adidas over a period of ten years. Hainer, who, in addition to his function at Adidas, represented Uli Hoeneß as FCB supervisory board chairman due to his prison sentence, then exchanged views with Rummenigge: “After my return from England, I wanted to explain to him how this deal with Manchester United came about. But that wasn’t a good idea.
Instead, Rummenigge “folded it up for an hour”. “It wasn’t just ten minutes, which would have been enough. Karl-Heinz wasn’t very enthusiastic that we negotiated such a contract with a competitor.” Afterwards, Rummenigge calmed down again, which “speaks for his professionalism”.
As befits a laudatory speech, there were also words of praise: “This is the only way to achieve the successes that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has achieved. He was constantly learning. And when he set his mind to something, he did it . He is a perfect representative of German football.”
FC Bayern, rumor: New three-year contract for Salihamidzic?
Hasan Salihamidžić is facing a three-year extension of his position as sports director at FC Bayern Munich, which expires in 2023. Again table football reported, the current transfer window, which has been very successful so far, has meant that developments have accelerated in this regard.
The Bayern bosses are particularly impressed that the team around Salihamidžić managed to sell small names for a lot of money. Although the record champions spent 137.5 million euros on Sadio Mané, Matthijs de Ligt, Mathys Tel and Ryan Gravenberch this summer (without bonus payments), a large minus could be avoided.
