Football: Basler advises Kahn: Talk to Hoeneß and Rummenigge

The former Munich soccer professional Mario Basler went to court with the crisis management of Bayern board member Oliver Kahn after the Bundesliga bankruptcy at FSV Mainz 05. "These are statements that you can also get rid of in kindergarten. It's neither fish nor meat. You have to be a leader. I can only remember Uli Hoeneß, who then goes into the dressing room after a game like this and completely loses his nerve and completely freaking out," said the former national soccer player in the "Basler ballert" podcast.

Kahn "can't look into the camera, he's always looking at the ground, at the clouds, I don't know if he's looking for someone. I find Oliver Kahn's public image catastrophic," said the 54-year-old from Basel about the former international goalkeeper. His former teammate runs "a business. Bayern is also a commercial enterprise. He runs it. I think he's missing something. You can't really judge him. He's been here for two years. He had a year or two of training with Uli Hoeneß and Karl Heinz Rummenigge. Basler's advice to the 53-year-old Kahn: "I think he should talk to Kalle or Uli."

Basler showed understanding for the days off granted by the new Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel for the Munich players after the 1:3 defeat in Mainz. "I think it's okay to give the players a day or two or three days off to see something different and get away from football. You have to say it's burning like hell in Munich. You can let the lads go." said Basler.

On Saturday in Mainz, the second half was "a bit of a refusal to work" from Munich, said the ex-professional. The 54-year-old does not see the blame for the crisis on Nagelsmann's successor, Tuchel. "I agree with many people who say, what can Tuchel do for this crisis? Basically, Bayern have done everything wrong that can be done wrong, out of necessity, for whatever reason, tried to change something, which went completely backwards," said Basler, adding: "After what they've done in the last few weeks, they don't deserve to become German champions."
