The fact that FC Bayern’s sporting situation has not improved a month after the quite surprising change of coach from Julian Nagelsmann to Thomas Tuchel recently cast the decisions of CEO Oliver Kahn in a bad light. There were even rumors in the media that the ex-goalkeeper from Munich was about to be eliminated. Now more information should have come to light.
FC Bayern’s 3-1 defeat against 1. FSV Mainz 05 didn’t exactly strengthen CEO Oliver Kahn’s position on Säbener Strasse, but the 53-year-old needn’t fear any immediate consequences.
As “Bild” and “Sky” want to know, Kahn is still given time by the supervisory board to turn things around.
A “dismissal in the next four to five weeks” is not planned, the TV station says. The “Bild” is even more specific and names May 22nd as a date on which the supervisory board will decide whether Kahn can continue to fill out his contract, which runs until the end of 2024.
According to the newspaper, however, Kahn should categorically rule out a voluntary resignation. The former goalkeeper titan wants to show that he also has what it takes to be one of the greats at official level.
Not only Kahn’s fate at Bayern should be sealed
Incidentally, on May 22, Kahn should not be the only important person to be judged on, it is said. The actions of sports boss Hasan Salihamidzic and coach Tuchel should then be put to the test.
On May 20th, the difficult home game against RB Leipzig will take place on the penultimate day of play, the last day of play will be on May 27th. Then Bayern threatens a season without a title after dropping out of the DFB Cup and the Champions League and falling to second place.
According to “Sky”, the fear of this extraordinary yield is also the reason why you don’t make short work of it. They don’t want to further jeopardize the “minimum goal” of the German championship by separating from Kahn.
The scenario of a dismissal is therefore “not excluded” after the current season.
