On Monday evening, the FC Bayern Supervisory Board met under the chairmanship of its last chairman, Uli Hoeneß.
Nevertheless, the president will give up his post at the plenary session next Friday and will only serve as a member of the supervisory board.
However, Hoeneß still seems to have a decisive personality: Hasan Salihamidzic and his promotion to sports director. His contract as the sports director of the former player will continue until the summer of 2020.
How SPORT1 previously reported, the decision was probably just a formality. It was supposed to be officially announced by Friday at the latest.
In almost two and a half years, from sports director to board member!
Gang Through Hard Bayern Steel Bath
Salihamidzic himself does not want to take public position. "This is not in my power, it is the responsibility of the Supervisory Board.
Behind him are difficult transfer stages (Callum Hudson-Odoi's cancellation, Leroy Sané's injury) and unrest in the club (friendly rebellion with PK, Niko Kovac, change of staff). I've always tried to do my best for the club, and such games (Dortmund versus 4-0, ie Red.) Good approvals, "he said.
"For the past two and a half years, this has been a turbulent time in which we have mastered quite well this year, including the transfer market stage, it's been a lot of work, but that's part of it, it's fun," says Salihamidzic.
Salihamidzic appreciated at the club
Internally, Salihamidzic can be heard again and again that he has won this new title because it seems that there has been no major change. Carefully approved, popular in the club. That's the team. Responsible for promoting incomplete personnel change.
Prior to this transfer parts such as Sané, Kai Havertz or Alexander Nübel can be transferred.

Salihamidzic sharpens profile
However, publicly, he left himself vulnerable at times. For example, with the comic performance after the cup match in Bochum. With Kovac shifting to separation.
However, the choice of words in the underground graves of the stadium has changed significantly. Salihamidzic recently complained of calling "everything" to heal. Kovac also called for the right to leave.
As Hoeneß and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have consistently emphasized, the sports director is involved in all important decisions. Transfers similar to Alphonso Davies are owned by him. The 19-year-old was considered a 17-year-old Nobody and is on his way to becoming a regular player. 85 million new signatures Lucas Hernández underwent surgery prior to the change (internal ligament damage to the right knee) and possibly failed by partial rupture of the internal ligament in his right ankle, possibly by the end of the year. Another operation was necessary. Therefore, registration transfer cannot be rated yet.
Hoeneß fights for Salihamidzic
How big is your internal support, Hoeneß’s call CHECK24 double pass -most SPORT1 Sunday afternoon. Bayern's boss strongly defended former professionals and made it clear: "All these decisions, especially in the last few weeks, have been fully integrated and made a very important contribution.
Regarding the possible introduction of Salihamidzic, he said, “This is an issue that is on the agenda of the Supervisory Board and we can say exactly what was decided after the board meeting, we are a very democratic club..
The truth is: if Salihamidzic is allowed to call himself a sports director since Monday night, it will strengthen him. That would be the biggest vote of confidence in the club.
