"Passion for FC Bayern": Hasan Salihamidžić impresses his boss

Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidžić are under massive criticism: FC Bayern's alpha animals are blamed for the tremendous unrest in the record champions' squad. President Herbert Hainer is now taking a stand for the duo and giving them backing.

FC Bayern experienced a mixed season. The early and so clear end in the DFB Cup against Gladbach (0:5) and the surprising elimination in the Champions League against FC Villarreal caused a bad atmosphere in the record champions, who were able to win at least their tenth league title in a row . Away from the pitch, the strategy for squad planning and in particular the change of theater around Robert Lewandowski cause a lot of fuss around the record champions. Above all, Oliver Kahn as CEO and Hasan Salihamidžić as sports director therefore have to defend themselves against critics.

Club President Herbert Hainer has now demonstratively placed himself in front of the two criticized officials in an interview with "Bild am Sonntag". "Oliver was there a year before, but as CEO you're in the front row as the person responsible. He's working on FC Bayern's strategy for the future and is initiating many things," explained the 67-year-old, appealing for understanding: "I know from personal experience what a challenge the position of CEO is."

Salihamidžić, whose squad planning is repeatedly criticized, is even more criticized than Kahn. Hainer emphasizes: "Hasan is doing a very good job overall. All the titles that we have won in recent years, six in 2020 alone, he also won them, he put the team together." The 67-year-old is also impressed by Salihamidžić's "passion for Bayern". The extensions of important players, such as Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich, Kingsley Coman, Jamal Musiala, Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer are sometimes due to the sports director.

The 45-year-old has done valuable work, not least in youth work. "It's our goal to bring more players from our own youth forward in order to escape this transfer madness a bit," said Hainer, describing the long-term direction of the club. This works well with the new concept for the Bayern campus. "With Jamal Musiala, Josip Stanisic, Paul Wanner and Gabriel Vidovic, we have young players among the pros who are developing very well," said Hainer, emphasizing Salihamidzic: "That's also thanks to Hasan."
