At the troubled FC Bayern, the pressure on the sporting leadership is increasing. Above all, CEO Oliver Kahn sees himself exposed to severe criticism. The ex-professional is also said to have lost some sympathy in the cabin.
A few weeks ago, FC Bayern was still dreaming of a treble, but as of now, the German industry leader, who has been spoiled by success, is threatened with a season without a title.
The main culprits of the misery have long been discussed on Säbener Straße. In this context, the name of CEO Oliver Kahn is mentioned regularly.
But the former national goalkeeper is not only seen suspiciously in the environment, he is also said to have caused displeasure in the FC Bayern dressing room. This is reported by “Bild”.
FC Bayern: Kahn brought cabin against himself
Accordingly, some professionals on Kahn are currently “not easy to talk to”. The background is the dismissal of coach Julian Nagelsmann, who was sold to the outside as if the team had fully behind the decision of their bosses.
Some people should therefore feel like a scapegoat so that Kahn, Hasan Salihamidzic and Co. did not have to admit that they were no longer completely convinced of Nagelsmann. The arguments put forward were ultimately just “pretexts”.
Joshua Kimmich, who was considered a close confidant of the ousted trainer, made no secret of his surprise in the days after the breakup. The midfielder assured that nobody had spoken to him about the subject beforehand.
Since Thomas Tuchel took over the helm, things have gone downhill for the record champions. In many places, the change of coach is therefore already described as a mistake.
On Sunday, a home win against Hertha BSC, bottom of the table, is a must for FC Bayern, otherwise the championship could already be gone.
