The soon-to-be CEO does not think the alleged tension between Hansi Flick and Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic is a bad thing at Bayern Munich.

The rumored “heat” between Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick and sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic has dominated the headlines of late, but at least one person does not think that some tension between the duo is necessarily a bad thing.

“It is part of FC Bayern’s DNA that there is a kind of culture of debate,” said Oliver Kahn, who will take over for Karl-Heinz Rummenigge as the club’s CEO later this year (as captured by Tz). “I also believe that this is an important success factor. As long as the whole thing is for the good of the club, there is nothing wrong with that. There is nothing to convey.”

The thought-process there is sound for sure, but getting the duo aligned on transfer strategy is surely going to something that Kahn will need to work on intently when he takes over.

Clearly, Der Titan is okay with the boys not exactly being on the same page all the time, but he will need to ensure they are cohesive enough to continue the club’s rampant success — or risk losing a key member of what has been a very successful executive line-up.
