For the first time ever, BFW is doing a three-person show! Hasan Salihamidzic has been a perennial subject of controversy at Bayern Munich, and with his contract set to run out next season, we decided to do a deep dive on his record and what he has achieved in his tenure as sporting director. With the Sadio Mané saga fresh in everyone’s minds, it seemed like a good time to finally tackle this issue.

In this episode, INNN, Tom, and Schnitzel discuss:

  • Our opening thoughts about Brazzo and how he has conducted his business at Bayern Munich.
  • Does Brazzo deserve the flack he gets for failing to extend certain contracts?
  • Talking about the communication issues at Bayern, especially the Robert Lewandowski saga.
  • The Niklas Sule incident — what happened there? Going through everything from top to bottom.
  • Criticism of Herbert Hainer and Oliver Kahn. How much of their failings are being blamed on Brazzo?
  • INNN tries to come up with some redeeming points for Brazzo. Maybe he learned his lessons this season?
  • What happened between Hansi Flick and the management?
  • Final question: Has Brazzo earned his contract extension yet? What more should he do? (Arguments ensue ...)
