Legendary goalkeeper Oliver Kahn is set to lose his job as CEO of Bayern Munich, according to reports in Germany today.
According to esteemed journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft, it is only “a matter of time” before the legendary ex-Bayern Munich and Germany captain is removed from his position as the Chief Executive Officer of the Bavarians.
Bayern Munich News: Oliver Kahn set to be sacked as CEO
During his fourteen-year spell at Bayern between 1994 to 2008, Kahn played 632 times in all competitions, winning the Bundesliga nine times and the Champions League once in 2001 when he wrote himself down in Bayern folklore saving three penalties in a shootout win against favorites Valencia.
Since retiring, Kahn first went into punditry, eventually becoming CEO in 2021, replacing the retiring Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Despite their domestic success, Kahn’s time as CEO of Bayern Munich has been seen as a disaster by many Bayern fans, who were again left reeling at failures in Europe after being dumped out of the Champions League comprehensively 4-1 on aggregate by Manchester City at the quarter-final stage and his time at the club may well have now come to an end.
I have been told that there is “an ongoing process” and a “matter of time” before Oliver Kahn, the CEO of Bayern, is removed from his position
