Oliver Kahn claimed he was forbidden from participating in Bayern Munich’s title celebrations. The Bavarians clinched the Bundesliga title after a dramatic 89th-minute winner from wonderkid Jamal Musiala.
“My plan was to come to Köln and then, of course, celebrate title with the squad, but I was forbidden,” said Kahn. He joined the Bayern executive board in 2020 and became CEO 18 months later. However, Kahn didn’t last long as he was sacked following a topsy-turvy campaign filled with controversial decisions. It is unknown whether Kahn will take a break from footballing activities or continue in some capacity.
Kahn was heavily criticised following Bayern’s departure from the DFB Pokal at the hands of Freiburg. According to reports, he also did not have the backing of the club’s officials.“Uli Hoeneß still has a big say in the club – and, according to our information, he has often criticised Kahn. Then it gets dangerous. Without the support of Uli Hoeneß, it is still very quick thin ice,” said one German outlet.
Jan Christian Dreesen will be the new Bayern Munich CEO. He was previously the chairman of a Swiss bank before being appointed the Chief Financial Officer of Bayern. Dreesen is regarded as an essential figure in the most financially successful decade in the club’s history and will now have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy on the club.
