Timing of Nagelsmann's dismissal unfortunate
A point of contention between those responsible at FC Bayern and the dismissed duo of Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic was the dismissal of Julian Nagelsmann. Hainer confirmed that he found the timing of Nagelsmann's dismissal "not happy". In addition, he himself had been informed about it far too late.
All in all, the release of the 35-year-old was "not good". According to his manager, the coach only learned about it from the media. Hainer wanted to avoid this mistake at all costs, which is why he communicated the decision on the dismissal of Kahn and Salihamidzic in good time.

A visit to Kahn was emotional
The decision to separate the sporting director and chairman of the board was very difficult for them, as it was a true club icon, Hainer explained. "But in the end, we had to act in a way that is best for the club," he continued. Furthermore, the 68-year-old explained how the separation had gone.
Together with Uli Hoeneß, Hainer informed Kahn of the separation in Hoeneß's city apartment. When asked how the situation could be described, the FC Bayern president replied succinctly "emotionally". The two are said to have expressed their opinion relatively quickly so that Kahn knew where he stood.

Hainer also emphasized that he fully understood Kahn's reaction. "We know he's an emotional guy after 30 years in the football business," he explained. However, the president holds out the prospect of a debate to the former goalkeeper and official. "As soon as everything has calmed down again, we would like to have a good relationship with him again," he says, looking to the future.
