The crisis at FC Bayern Munich is currently coming to a head. In the meantime, the German record champions are talking about a disturbed climate.
Munich – Crisis days at FC Bayern. At the weekend, there is a chance that the German champions will not be called Bayern Munich for the first time in eleven years. Just a few days later, on 30 May, the record champions' supervisory board meeting is scheduled. The development of the club and the personnel of Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn are up for debate.

Salihamidzic has sporting responsibility
While Kahn is held responsible for the overall development of FC Bayern, Salihamidzic is responsible for sporting development. And it doesn't look too rosy at the moment. Bayern are facing their first titleless season since 2012.
After the dismissal of Julian Nagelsmann, Bayern squandered their chances of winning the cup and Champions League. In addition, the championship is no longer in your own hands on the last matchday and you have to hope for a mistake by BVB. A development that is unlikely to please any of those responsible.

Relationship between the team and the management is "totally disturbed"
In addition to the much-discussed dismissal of the coach, the team no longer seems to be fully behind the sporting director. In his position, Salihamidzic is responsible for personnel decisions and the climate around the team. The kicker reports that this is internally described as "totally disturbed" and that a lot is said to have broken in recent months.
Player confidence has declined as sensitive conversations have leaked out. In addition, false promises were often made, as in the Nübel case. In addition, they are clearly dissatisfied with public communication, such as Gnabry's trip to Paris, Neuer's skiing accident, Tapalovic's departure or Nagelsmann's release.
Brazzo and the blame for departures
The problems with Salihamidzic did not just start this season. The former player of the record champions had fallen out with treble coach Hansi Flick despite continued success. The reason for this was the interest in Nagelsmann, whom he had to fire again only a year and a half later.

The club lost leaders such as Robert Lewandowski and David Alaba and has not been able to replace them to this day. Alaba, in particular, was considered an important player for the dressing room and left the club because they could not reach an agreement. In addition, Miroslav Klose and Hermann Gerland turned their backs on the club after years of work. Gerland confirmed in the double pass that he "had problems with Hassan". (jari)
