The future of Kahn, who has come under massive criticism, is to be decided at the upcoming Supervisory Board meeting on May 30th. Dreesen has been CFO of FC Bayern since 2013 and Deputy CEO since 2014.

Last September, however, the Munich team announced that the 55-year-old would leave the club after his contract expired at the end of June. “I had a fantastic ten years at Bayern,” he said at the time. “After long and careful consideration, I have now decided to redefine my personal goals after this extraordinary decade.”
