Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic are history. Uli Hoeneß explains what mistakes the two made.

Munich - It was the eleventh German championship, but at the same time a mega-quake that hit Säbener Straße. When the final whistle blew in Cologne, it was clear: FC Bayern Munich would sack Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn. A title with an aftertaste, which also tended to fade into the background for the next few days, while the drama about Brazzo and especially Kahn developed.

Brazzo was up on the balcony as already dismissed, while Kahn sulked at home and contradicted any reports that he had freaked out at the announcement of his dismissal. One person who led the next upheaval at FCB was Uli Hoeness, who answered questions in an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung. One thing that led to the dismissal of his two ex-professionals was the surprising separation from Julian Nagelsmann, which probably did not yet exist at the record champions.

"Nobody" knew about Nagelsmann's expulsion: Hoeneß rumbles after Kahn-Brazzo decision

The sum of the decisions of the two had ensured an "overall development", "which has caused more and more irritation over time," said the long-time FCB president and manager in an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung. As an example of poor communication, honorary president Hoeneß cited the circumstances surrounding the dismissal of coach Julian Nagelsmann. Kahn and Salihamidzic would have made this decision without consultation, despite the great implications. "Nobody" knew about it, "even Herbert Hainer (FCB president, editor's note) was informed far too late as chairman of the supervisory board. And something like that just doesn't work," Hoeneß said.

If you scroll back in the calendar, there was always the accusation of why Hainer sang the coach's praises shortly before Nagelsmann's dismissal. This now coincides with Hoeneß's statements that Hainer knew nothing. Yes, even if Hainer's statements were made before the Leverkusen defeat, he was still clueless.

Kahn had chosen the wrong approach and had too little connection to football. "Oliver had defined his role for himself in such a way that he largely stayed out of the sport. Sport is the main task. Our product is football," said Hoeneß. In addition, Kahn had maintained neither close contact with him nor with former CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

"Tuchel will play an important role": Hoeneß on the role of the new coach

"You can reposition any company and do everything differently, that's completely legitimate - but you have to be successful with it. Nothing else is at stake. It bothers me when it is now said again that Hoeneß still wants to determine the rules," said the 71-year-old: "I would prefer everything to go well and we still have all the board members together. The last few days and weeks have been anything but a pleasure."

Together with Rummenigge, who was appointed to the supervisory board on Tuesday, Hoeneß is now holding talks with players and consultants. Coach Thomas Tuchel "will play an important role in the decision-making process, but he will certainly not go to the clubs or agents and negotiate now." (ank with SID)
