Karl-Heinz Rummenigge moves to the supervisory board

Bayern Munich will bring back its former CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge as part of the new start at the top of the club. “We will involve him more closely again and propose on Tuesday to include him in the supervisory board,” said President Herbert Hainer at a press conference on Sunday.

Rummenigge has “incredibly great merits for the club and is very well respected in European football,” Hainer explained. With the 67-year-old, “even more sporting expertise is added”. Rummenigge had handed over his position as CEO to Oliver Kahn in the summer of 2021, from whom Bayern have now separated again.

Hainer commented on reports that Honorary President and Supervisory Board member Uli Hoeneß could play a more important role again: “Uli and I get along very well. We are in constant communication. He will always be an adviser for us.”

Hoeneß and Hainer informed Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic on Thursday morning that the record champions would like to separate from the duo. The new CEO is the previous CFO Jan-Christian Dreesen, who received a two-year contract. Salihamidzic’s successor has not yet been decided.

The search is “not easy,” said Hainer. They want “a sports director who can and wants to implement the goals of FC Bayern Munich – and they are national and international, to be at the top – with us. We don’t speculate about names, but of course we’re looking for someone who understands his business , from A to Z.”

There is speculation about the former Bayern professional Max Eberl from RB Leipzig and Frankfurt’s Markus Krösche. Both are “very, very good sports directors,” said Hainer.
