“Kahn and Salihamidzic fired Nagelsmann without telling anyone”

Uli Hoeneß, member of the Supervisory Board of Bayern Munichhas granted an interview in Sueddeutsche Zeitung in which explains the bizarre decisions that have taken place in the club in recent times. As usual in Hoeneß he tries to explain clearly what has happened. True to his style, no holds barred. The recipients of his main criticisms are Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic, already outgoing members of the entity. “Was he involved in the decision to fire Nagelsmann? No, nobody. Herbert Hainer, as chairman of the supervisory board, was also informed too late. And that was not a good thing. On the Wednesday before the removal, Hasan stood up in my spite and said: ‘We want to do it, and in fact we have already decided.’ explained hoeneß of how Nagelsmann’s dismissal came about.

At the interview, Uli Hoeneß admits that he too had doubts with Nagelsmann, but considers that the time was not right: “I think dismissing him ten days before the Dortmund game is wrong. Very badly”. Although the Bavarian president also focuses on the young German coach: “It didn’t seem good to me that Julian Nagelsmann went skiing in such a critical situation after the 2-1 draw in Leverkusen. That shouldn’t have happened.” Added to this was Nagelsmann’s relationship with a journalist from Bild: “It is a very personal issue and a private matter that must be respected. But it is understandable that this matter is anything but optimal for a club.

Hoeneß gives details of how his conversation with Khan went to tell him that he was no longer at Bayern. “We wanted Oliver and Hasan to find out about us directly, we wanted to keep the subject away from the team before the game in Cologne and we wanted to announce it to the public immediately after telling the players in the locker room. Oliver (Kahn) went on a rampage, he yelled for a while. The news that he was not going to continue did not come out of the blue: we had repeatedly hinted to him that such a possibility existed. After three-quarters of an hour of discussion, he ran off. We had already told Hasan that it could happen. He didn’t surprise him.” For Hoeness, the problem with Kahn and Salihamidzic was their lack of communication with the heavyweights on the Bayern Council: “Oliver has only called me about five times in all this time.”
