Update: Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn is about to be sacked…or is he? More details emerge
If true, then it looks like what goes around comes around.
Update — April 20th, 10:10AM EST: Plettenberg has more details, while Hainer says “not true”
Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg issued two tweets updating the situation surrounding suddenly-embattled Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn. First, Plettenberg added more information on what might be going on:
Later, Plettenberg added comments from Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer, who insisted Kahn was going nowhere:
Let it be known that FC Hollywood never lets drama rest, even after a major humiliation in the Champions League. Just hours after the elimination to Manchester Cityit looks like the first consequences at Bayern Munich may be felt at the executive level, if journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft is to be believed. Yesterday night, he teased that something big was about to happen in German football.
Here’s the outcome of that teaser — according to him, it’s only a matter of time before Oliver Kahn is sacked.
Some additional info from the quote tweets:
- Club President Herbert Hainer could take over as interim chairman for the time being.
- A return of Uli Hoeness is being considered.
- Among ex-players, Philipp Lahm would be the most desirable candidate to take over the job, but he is currently busy as the Managing Director of Euro 2024 in Germany.
- Hasan Salihamidzic is safe for now, as he enjoys the support of Hoeness.
- Kahn’s problem is that he failed to win over the employees at the club, and currently has no support as a result.
You have to wonder how much the firing of Julian Nagelsmann has figured into this decision. His sacking and the subsequent hiring of Thomas Tuchel was presented as a consensus by the board, but Kahn always seemed to be the driving factor behind the move. Now that it has failed, his name has ended up on the chopping block.
What a turn of events, huh? If this is true, then this might be one of the craziest Bayern seasons in decades.
