After Bayern Munich’s 3-1 win over Hoffenheim on Friday, Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidžić went to the ZDF studios where Oliver Kahn was working as a game analyst. The on-camera get together took place only a few days after rumors emerged that Bayern may add another sporting director, which reportedly could be Kahn. The report prompted Brazzo to state that he would never accept another sporting director at Bayern (Bild).
After few minutes of game-related talk, the moderator asked Salihamidžić:
Can you imagine working under Oliver Kahn?
Salihamidžić replied that the former teammates won the Champions League together. Then Kahn added that he captained the team, so Salihamidžić already played under him. Then they both started laughing.
When the laughter quieted down, the Bosnian added:
I have no problems. He should not be a sporting director anyway, so that’s not an issue. The president explained that too, if he comes, he will be CEO. That’s all I can say.
Later Brazzo added that he would love to win Champions League with Kahn, only this time in suits. Then Kahn added:
I don’t know how this discussion [over the Bayern Munich position] is going. Because it is not led by me. I have not said anything about the subject to this day.
After that came the comedic part of the evening. Both of them started joking around over the position, and frankly it was something very interesting to see. They both got along very well for the cameras and it would be interesting to see if that would translate to the front office.
Salihamidžić finished the interview saying:
We get along together very well. I like that.
