In a recent interview with Bayern Munich club magazine “51”, club president spoke about the current transformation of the front office and how things will not lose the look and feel of what has been built over the years.

“It is a huge turning point when two such personalities (Uli Hoeneß / Karl-Heinz Rummenigge) who have made the club great for decades are no longer responsible. But we initiated this transition a long time ago with foresight, and we are all firmly convinced that we are ideally positioned for the future,” said Hainer. “Oliver Kahn is the right person to take over from Karl-Heinz. He has the absolute FC Bayern gene in him, has shaped the club as a player, developed his personality after his career, also gained his experience in the economic field and will manage FC Bayern München AG as the new times require. The club is facing new challenges, time brings with it — and Kahn has new answers. “

As for how big a role Hoeneß and Rummenigge will have moving forward, the legendary duo will have as much as say as they want.

“Uli is still involved as a member of the supervisory board and is an important point contact for all of us. He will always remain connected to his FC Bayern,” Hainer said. “Karl-Heinz does not want to hold an official position any more, but we would all be very happy if we always have an advisor in him with whom we can exchange ideas at any time. As with Uli, his opinion is important to us.”
