Shortly after winning the eleventh championship title in a row, Bayern announced the separation of Kahn and Salihamidzic on Saturday. Among other things, they are accused of a misguided personnel policy in the composition of the team.

From 2002 onwards, Rummenigge was chairman of the board of the Munich club for 19 years and, together with club patron Uli Hoeneß, led the club to numerous successes.
