BERLIN (GERMANY), 29 May. (dpa/EP) –
The former general director of Bayern Munich, Oliver Kahn, announced that he will hold a meeting with the club’s leaders after his dismissal, “when everything has cooled down”, after acknowledging that he was “disappointed”.
“When everything has cooled down, we will meet and talk calmly,” Kahn said in statements to the German newspaper Bild, after he was sacked immediately after winning the Bundesliga this Saturday by beating Cologne 2-1 and taking advantage of the tie of the Borussia Dortmund against Mainz.
The former goalkeeper and the former sports director of Bayern, Hansan Salihamidzic, also dismissed, have been highly criticized, among other things, for not signing a high-level replacement for the Polish Robert Lewandowski, when he left for FC Barcelona last summer . In addition to firing Julian Nagelsmann as coach at the end of March.
Kahn was not with the team in that victory that allowed Bayern to win their 33rd Bundesliga title, which caused him “disappointment”. However, he makes a positive assessment of his management over the last two years. “I took on this responsibility because I wanted to give something back to the club. It was not an easy task after the very successful time with Uli Hoeneb and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge,” he said.
“The club is currently in a transition phase, which is always difficult and where mistakes are sometimes made. Although the current situation is not easy, for me the great experiences with Bayern far outweigh the negative ones,” he added. .
