“A win is a win, but why not take responsibility?” B.Munich fires CEO Oliver Kahn

“The club’s board of directors has decided to dismiss CEO Oliver Kahn and President Hasan Salihamidzic. Jan-Kristian Dresen will succeed Oliver Kahn as CEO of Bayern Munich,” the club announced.

Herbert Heiner, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bayern Munich, said: “Mr. Dresden has done a great job at Bayern Munich over the past 10 years. He is a very competent person who lives in Bayern and knows the situation inside and outside the club very well. We are delighted to have someone of his caliber in this important position.”

“I am grateful for the decision of the 메이저사이트 Board of Directors. When Bayern Munich offered me the position of CEO, I put everything aside and accepted. I will give my all to the successful future of Bayern Munich. I wish you all the best.”

Oliver Kahn was appointed to the Bayern Munich board in January 2020. During his time on the Board, Bayern Munich won the UEFA Champions League (UCL), two Bundesliga titles, the UEFA Super Cup, and the German Super Cup. In July 2021, Oliver Kahn was promoted to CEO.

Bayern Munich did not disclose the reason for the simultaneous dismissal of the CEO and head coach. However, it is believed to be due to poor performance. Bayern Munich set a goal of winning the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and UEFA Champions League (UCL) this season, but only won the Bundesliga.

They didn’t even win the Bundesliga. After dominating the Bundesliga for the past 10 seasons, Bayern Munich finished second this season before the final game. First place went to Dortmund. Dortmund went into the final game feeling like they had the title locked up, while Bayern Munich was hoping for a miracle.

In the final, first-place Dortmund would have to draw or lose, and Bayern Munich would have to win to win the title. That’s exactly what happened. Dortmund drew 2-2 with Mainz, and Bayern Munich beat FC Koln 2-1 to win the title. After the championship ceremony, Bayern Munich announced the firing of CEO Oliver Kahn and head coach Salihamidzic.

Bayern Munich was eliminated by Manchester City in the Champions League quarterfinals. DFB Pokal was also eliminated in the quarterfinals, losing to Freiburg. The Champions League and DFB Pokal exits come shortly after the club fired Julian Nagelsmann and hired Thomas Tuchel as head coach.

CEO Oliver Kahn and president Salihamidzic were forced out of their positions, but Tuchel is expected to remain at the helm next season. Bayern Munich’s reforms have only just begun.
