As of 6:23 p.m
FC Bayern implements its plan and brings Karl-Heinz Rummenigge back to the club. As a member of the supervisory board, the 67-year-old should now primarily steer the transfers of Munich in the desired direction. Meanwhile, there are also first cancellations for the club.
KAs announced, arl-Heinz Rummenigge is a new member of the FC Bayern Supervisory Board. The former CEO was appointed on Tuesday at the regular meeting of FC Bayern München AG’s general meeting. “We are happy to have Karl-Heinz Rummenigge as a member of our supervisory board. He is one of the great personalities in the history of our club, everyone knows his merits. His experience, his expertise and his international network will help us enormously so that FC Bayern can continue to be successful in the future,” said Herbert Hainer, chairman of the supervisory board, in a club statement.
Rummenigge should be more involved with the German champions after the separation of CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. “I would like to thank the supervisory board for their trust and look forward to supporting FC Bayern in this body in the future. I was very fortunate and honored to celebrate many successes with this club, so I’m happy to comply with the request of the supervisory board,” said the 67-year-old Rummenigge.
The now nine-strong Supervisory Board also includes Honorary President Uli Hoeneß. The 71-year-old Hoeneß led the club for a long time together with Rummenigge, who was CEO for almost two decades. The triple wins in 2013 and 2020 fell during his tenure. Two years ago, Rummenigge vacated his post prematurely for successor Kahn.
Frankfurt’s sports director Krösche does not go to Bayern
Rummenigge should now be pulling the strings with the new club boss Jan-Christian Dreesen, his old Bayern partner Hoeneß and coach Thomas Tuchel, especially in the upcoming transfers and upcoming contract negotiations. According to Hoeneß, Tuchel should be available to the committee for eight to ten days to make his own suggestions.
Meanwhile, according to BILD, Markus Krösche has no interest in the vacant post of sports director at FC Bayern. The 42-year-old will stay with league opponent Eintracht Frankfurt regardless of a possible offer from the German record champions. “Markus Krösche does not have an exit clause in his contract and is an essential building block for our successes in the past two years. We know from the conversations with him that he is not concerned with a change and is only concentrating on his work in Frankfurt,” Frankfurt’s Supervisory Board Chairman Philip Holzer told BILD. Krösche is under contract with the cup finalists from Hesse until 2025.
After Kahn’s exit, Krösche should also be in the focus of the German champions in addition to Leipzig’s Max Eberl. Hoeneß had described him as a “good man”. According to BILD information, Krösche is said to have already rejected offers from Ajax Amsterdam and the three top English clubs Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. “The fact that his name is associated with other top clubs shows that the very good work at Eintracht Frankfurt is recognized nationally and internationally,” said Holzer.
