“Nobody becomes a boss at BMW because they can drive BMWs well.”



Jan Age Fjörtoft was a guest in Doppelpass on Sunday.

CEO Oliver Kahn is from TV expert Jan Age Fjörtoft sports1-One pass has been sharply criticized. The legend of Eintracht Frankfurt first reported a few weeks ago about the alleged doubts about the former goalkeeper within the management of FC Bayern Munich.

The Norwegian indirectly accused Kahn of not being qualified for his position with the German record champions. “We forget what Oliver Kahn is. He’s the CEO of one of the biggest German brands,” introduced Fjörtoft, emphasizing: “Just because he used to be a good goalkeeper doesn’t mean that Kahn is also a good CEO. At BMW won’t become a boss either, because he’s good at driving a BMW. You can’t compare Kahn to Uli Hoeneß, who built the club at the age of 27.”

Fjörtoft, who has a large network and, for example, reported before this season that FC Bayern was interested in Erling Haaland, which has since been confirmed, also spoke about his relationship with Kahn. After his tweet in April, in which he described Kahn’s dismissal as “a matter of time”, he called the 56-year-old “some Twitterer” in a statement.

“I played twice against Oliver Kahn and scored two goals. He already knows my name. But I can live with that. Rudi Völler once called me someone from the Muppet Show – that was my breakthrough.” , explained Fjörtoft with a wink.

The former striker also adheres to his information that FC Bayern is looking for an alternative to Kahn: “I don’t know if Kahn will stay with Bayern, but I know that Bayern is looking for another candidate. And then you can do that interpret it however you want. I’m not an investigative journalist, but I do talk to an awful lot of people. And I think since I tweeted that tweet, everything has turned out to be true.”

Oliver Kahn at Bayern: decision will be made on May 30th

In addition, Fjörtoft defended his assumption that SGE’s Axel Hellmann was considered a successor candidate. “I stand by 100 percent that Hellmann was a hotter candidate than you thought you were actually talking about the job,” he said. Shortly after a Fjörtoft tweet, the trained lawyer denied any exchange with the people of Munich.

With a view to the supervisory board meeting on May 30, at which the future of Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic will be voted on, Fjörtoft spoke of an “interesting meeting, then we’ll see”.

President Herbert Hainer, Christian Seifert, Oliver Mintzlaff, Philipp Lahm and a few other names have recently been traded as possible successors to Kahn.
