Hansi Flick is leaving FC Bayern because of the quarrels with Hasan Salihamidzic.

At first, another ex-star should have been the desired solution as a sports director.

Munich - It no longer fits.

The successful marriage between Hansi Flick and FC Bayern broke up.

The coach gives his heart club the passport, wants out of his contract.

This is probably due to Hasan Salihamidzic, who is said to have interfered again and again.

The tense relationship between the sports board and Flick apparently reached proportions that the football teacher could no longer bear.

Everything could have turned out very differently.

FC Bayern: Klose canceled as sports director - Brazzo came as a replacement

Hasan Salihamidzic became sports director at FC Bayern in 2017, and in 2020 he was even promoted to the sports directorate. Four years ago he succeeded Matthias Sammer, who had terminated his contract a year earlier. But actually the record champions had completely different plans, as 


columnist Ronald Reng reveals. The plan of the then President Uli Hoeneß envisaged that Miroslav Klose would get the post of sports director instead of Salihamidzic.

"When Hoeneß told me at the time that they had asked Miro Klose, I knew how desperately they were looking,"

writes the bestselling author, who is also Klose's biographer, in his column.

Klose was able to assess himself well, so he refused the post.

“He had a lot of football skills, but no management experience.

So Hoeneß and Rummenigge ended up with the next young professional: Salihamidzic, ”

explains Reng.

After Sammer, the bosses wanted to install a man with a stable smell as head of sports.

Both the World Cup record goalscorer and the Bosnian can look back on a successful past as players at FC Bayern.

Does Klose leave Bavaria like Flick?

Dispute over Salihamidzic's son revealed

Flick and Salihamidzic had often clashed because of the transfer policy. With Klose as sports director, the working atmosphere on Säbener Strasse would have been different, but Klose decided to pursue a career as a coach. There he gained his first experience as a U17 coach for Bayern for two years before Flick brought him to the pros as an assistant coach last summer. Together the two became world champions with Germany in 2014, Klose as a goal scorer and Flick as assistant coach.

Klose could now follow his boss and leave Bayern in the summer as well. His contract is running out, at the moment there was no sign of an extension.

"What makes me think is how people communicate with each other right now,"

said the former international striker to


. “To have respect for one another, even if you don't always agree, that is absolutely necessary! Uli and Kalle made this club a world club because they always wanted FC Bayern and not personal vanities, ”criticized Klose.

Like Flick, Klose is said to have had disagreements with Salihamidzic. Among other things, the two ex-professionals argued in 2019 about which team Klose should train in the youth field. In addition, there was apparently trouble because Klose had rarely taken Nick Salihamidzic, Brazzo's son, into the squad of his team at the time, the U17. Meanwhile, Bayern fans are calling for an old companion of Klose to succeed Salihamidzic.
