Sports Director: Report: Doubts about Salihamidzic at FC Bayern

According to a media report, because of the earnings crisis at FC Bayern Munich, Hasan Salihamidzic is apparently coming under more pressure in addition to CEO Oliver Kahn.

As the specialist magazine "Kicker" reported, there are internal doubts as to whether the former professional is up to his duties as a sports director at FC Bayern. There were increasing opinions that this position with the German record champions was too big for the 46-year-old.

Salihamidzic started as sports director at Bayern in 2017 and was promoted to the board in 2020. One of his biggest advocates at the time was club icon Uli Hoeneß. The 71-year-old is now Honorary President and an enormously influential member of the Supervisory Board, which, according to the Articles of Association, determines the composition of the Management Board.

Salihamidzic is primarily accused of not having acted happily on the transfer market. Of the newcomers this season, only defender Matthijs de Ligt counts as a direct hit. The sports director also blamed the fact that he did not choose a direct replacement for the center forward Robert Lewandowski, who had migrated to FC Barcelona, ​​as a mistake.

Salihamidzic's transfer balance and work in previous years is rated much more positively. Under his direction, Bayern celebrated six titles in 2020 alone.
