A former youth coach accuses FC Bayern of urging him to sign a termination agreement after accusations of racism became known.
SPIEGEL reported on this.
A lawyer for the association denied this on Monday before the labor court in Munich and said that the agreement had been reached amicably.
During the negotiation, the legality of the termination agreement is to be checked.
The club separated from the coach after racism allegations against him became known.
He is said to have used racist expressions in discussions about the obligation of players.
Christian Nohr, lawyer for the youth coach, told the court that the club had put pressure on his client and threatened to publish his name if he did not agree to sign the contract.
The legal representative of FC Bayern, however, said that the junior coach had only decided after the separation to "make something bigger out of it".
In addition, his name had long been known to the public.
From the lawyer's point of view, publication would have "had no potential threat at all".
The SPIEGEL had decided against publishing the name of the coach.
As expected, there was no agreement between the lawyers for the club and the coach.
Now the parties are expected to meet again in court on January 13th.
Nohr announced that he would call numerous witnesses to confirm his version of the story.
