More details about Bayern Munich’s future are becoming clear. On the same day that it was announced that BMW would replace Audi as a shareholder at the club, AZ also confirmed that Oliver Kahn will join Bayern’s board of directors in 2020. The board voted Kahn in unanimously as a full-member at the beginning of the New Year. Now, they must decide on the details of their new collaboration.

There is a high possibility that Kahn will not only be used for soccer-related matters but also with business decisions facing the club. After retiring from professional soccer, he went to college to study business. After finishing his general studies in economics, he went on to receive a degree in General Management with a minor in Sports Management. In 2016, he founded a company called Goalplay, which aims to train goalkeepers online.

The plan right now is for Kahn to inherit Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s position as chairman of the board of directors by the end of 2021.
