Bayern Munich set to remove CEO Oliver Kahn, Ulrich Hoeness could return

Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn is set to be relieved of his duties soon, reports Jan Aage Fjortoft.

The Bundesliga club were eliminated by Manchester City in the quarter-final of the Champions League last night.

Bayern lost 3-0 in the first leg before drawing 1-1 in the return leg at the Allianz Arena.

They are also out of the DFB Pokal and just two points ahead of Borussia Dortmund in the league with six games left.

Bayern appointed Thomas Tuchel as their manager last month after parting company with Julian Nagelsmann.

Many people believe they should have axed Nagelsmann earlier, but Khan stuck by him.

The decision could prove costly and talks are ongoing about removing him.

Bayern president Herbert Hainer could be made interim chairman, and former president Ulrich Hoeness could be brought back.

Philipp Lahm has been tipped to become Bayern’s next CEO.

However, the former Bavarian star is currently occupied as he is the managing director of next year’s European Championship to be held in Germany.

There is a feeling Kahn has never won Bayern employees over since assuming the position in July 2021.

He succeeded Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and the club won the Bundesliga in his first year.

However, they missed out on the DFB-Pokal and were eliminated by Villarreal in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The German club have been unable to dominate on the pitch as they did previously.

They spent around £130 million on players last summer, but the failure to replace Robert Lewandowski has proven fatal.

Bayern eventually brought in Sadio Mane, but the Senegalese has struggled, and Khan could pay for the decision and several others.
