Bayern Munich sack Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn, forbidding Kahn from attending his last game

Ruthless. The game was barely over.

This, however, is not going to help Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn. Both have reportedly been sacked, according to Maximillian Koch of AZ. Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge are back in the driver’s seats. The new era of FC Bayern is looking a lot like the old one.

Kahn AND Brazzo out! Complete new beginning at FC Bayern. Dreesen takes over as CEO, Salihamidzic’s successor is still being sought. Hoeneß, Rummenigge now back at the helm - as reported.

You could see Brazzo’s expression change at half time, he may have already known by then. If this report is true, then he leaves with a relatively mixed record as sporting director. The treble was won with many of his signings and he was personally responsible for bringing in Jamal Musiala from Chelsea FC, who scored the Bundesliga winning goal this season. His tenure will be judged in posterity.

Oliver Kahn, meanwhile, will not be looked on anywhere near as charitably. Being the chief architect of the Nagelsmann sacking and bringing in Thomas Tuchel, many see him as the reason for Bayern’s horrible season. Some may think he’s been made a scapegoat, but rumors of his sacking have been circulating for ages.

We now only wait for the official announcement. What a mess of a season. Still, we’re German champions. That’s something.


As we were writing, Bild also confirmed it.

Update #2

Oliver Kahn says he was FORBIDDEN from attending the game. It’s not just Google Translate, even @iMiaSanMia confirmed the wording.

Kahn says it was “the worst say of his life” and the “chance to celebrate with the team was taken away” from him (via @iMiaSanMia).

This club really has a passion for drama. Kahn’s sacking shouldn’t have been handled like this.
