Uli Hoeneß: Kahn as CEO was a mistake

The expulsion of Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic at Bayern overshadowed winning the championship. Honorary President Uli Hoeneß now explained the reasons and left no doubt that it was the right decision.

Bayern Munich’s honorary president Uli Hoeneß, in retrospect, described it as a mistake that Oliver Kahn was the boss of the record champions. “In retrospect, you have to say it like that,” Hoeneß told the “kicker” on Monday. Kahn is a highly intelligent man and the exchange with the former national goalkeeper was fun. “The big disappointment is that I thought he could do the job on his own because of his personality, but he surrounded himself with his advisors instead,” Hoeneß said.

After winning the eleventh championship in a row, the Munich team parted ways with CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic on Saturday. While Salihamidzic’s release was by mutual agreement, Kahn’s split was not amicable. Hoeneß described the conversation with the 53-year-old as “not a pleasant one” and thus supported the version of events already presented by President Herbert Hainer.

Oliver Kahn verbally attacked his successor Dreesen

In the conversation, Kahn verbally shot his successor Jan-Christian Dreesen. That’s why he was advised not to travel to Cologne to avoid further escalation, said Hoeneß and criticized Kahn’s advisors. They would have caused “catastrophically bad mood” in the background. FC Bayern’s image has suffered, and the south curve and the powerful Ultra-Verein Schickeria have approached the club with the request that things cannot go on like this.

Despite all the fuss, Hoeneß wants to part with Kahn on good terms. “I have a lot of respect for the person, he has achieved a lot as a player. Even if he has not lived up to expectations as CEO, my door is always open to Oliver.” After the first emotional tweets, Kahn had also struck up a conciliatory tone and announced clarifying talks with the top management.
