He Bayern Munich he had a second semester to forget: fired Julian Nagelsman for non-sporting reasons and decided to hire Thomas Tuchel but the performance of the equipment did not improve. They were left out of the German Cup, Manchester City forcefully eliminated them in the Champions League quarterfinals and They only established themselves in the Bundesliga because Borussia Dortmund could not win against Mainz on the last date. To top it off, the climate in the locker room became rare after a fight between Sadio Mané and Leroy Sané.

That is why The Bavarian giant’s board of directors decided to make resounding changes to its scheme to start from scratch, and the first two to be ejected were the CEO, Oliver Kahn, and the sports director, Hasan Salihamidžić. Rumors even indicate that they were not even allowed to participate in the festivities for having obtained the title.
Through a press conference, Bayern president Herbert Hainer spoke about the decision: “Especially in the second half of the season you could see that we didn’t play the way we wanted and on the board we wanted a fresh start. We had conversations with Uli Hoeness, Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic. The conversation with Kahn was very emotional. There is never a right time for a break up like this“, maintained the leader who, in addition toonfirmed Christian Dreesen as new CEO replacing the historic goalkeeper, although they hope that he will continue in the Bayern family in another position but “that has to come from both sides.”
Along the same lines, he gave a nod to the continuity of Thomas Tuchel as technical director for the next season. “There is no discussion of the coach now. We are convinced with him“, they maintained.
They also commented that they are still analyzing candidates for the position of sports director, vacant with the departure of Salihamidzic. “We are looking for someone who understands your business from A to Z”. And everything seems to indicate that they will go for someone who holds that position in one of their rivals in the Bundesliga. The first names to leak were Markus Krösche from Eintracht Frankfurt and Max Eberl from Leipzig.. For his part, Heiner said that former CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge will return to the supervisory board on Tuesday.
One of the issues that remains to be analyzed is what will happen to Sadio Mane. The Senegalese footballer arrived at Bayern Munich after several successful years at Liverpool. However, his performances were well below his usual level and his assault on Leroy Sané after a match against Manchester City led to his removal from the team being considered.
Despite all of the above, The attacker is willing to continue at the German club because he is attracted to the project and has already communicated it to both his agent and the Bayern Munich authorities and coach Tuchel. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Board of Directors will decide his future in the coming weeks.
