FC Bayern threatens to restless summer

Despite the tenth championship title in a row, FC Bayern threatens the most restless summer in a long time. With Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry, two well-known stars could leave the German football record champion. There are also discussions about Robert Lewandowskis director Hasan Salihamidzic.

Uli Hoeneß once jokingly referred to himself as “mother Teresa” himself, alluding to the Indian nurse, who died in 1997, who acquired a (now frequently questioned) image of the unconditional benefactor and even won the Nobel Peace Prize for the arms of Kalkutta.

Last Sunday, the former manager, President and Supervisory Council leader of FC Bayern, slipped into the role of a lion mother who defends her young.

Hoeneß ‘”Jung”, that is Hasan Salihamidzic, Robert Lewandowskis director of the club and protege of the long -time maker, which he installed in 2017 as a Robert Lewandowskis director in the management team and with which he is still to be in constant exchange today.

FC Bayern: Criticism of “Hetzjagd” on Hasan Salihamidzic

A “hunt” on the ex-professional of the Munich team is currently taking place in the media, complained Hoeneß and opposed the increasingly louder criticism of Salihamidzic’s transfer policy.

This is “not solely responsible for the new additions to FC Bayern,” said Hoeneß. “Only one is always picked up. When we won six titles, I didn’t hear any who called ‘Hasan, Hasan’. Now that we don’t win the Champions League, now he’s to blame. That can’t be. “

Displeasant journalists, as far as the Hoeneß’s rage and defense speech went, the association should even “deny access to the Blessed Sacrament on Säbener Straße.

pressure on Hasan Salihamidzic “Brutal”

In fact, it is fired in many places and almost all pipes on Salihamidzic if you want to stay in the usual speech of Robert Lewandowskis reporting.

“Salihamidzic fights for his job”, called “Bild” and stated that the pressure on the 45-year-old waxes in the face of many unfortunate decisions in the past few months.

The “Süddeutsche Zeitung” also warned “clear decisions” of the Bayern bosses. Salihamidzic is primarily challenged.

And the medically almost omnipresent national player Lothar Matthäus has been criticizing his former teammate for some time. The 61-year-old even talked to Borussia Mönchengladbach’s ex-manager Max Eberl a possible successor.

FC Bayern lets Robert Lewandowski fidget

In particular, the Causa Robert Lewandowski falls in front of the feet of Salihamidzic, which is of course primarily responsible for personnel planning.

For a long time, those responsible had the second best goal scorer of the history of FC Bayern fidgeted in terms of contract extension. It is also reported that they tried intensively to sign from Erling Haaland until the end.

It was only at the end of April that there was a first conversation by Salihamidzic and CEO Oliver Kahn with Lewandowski’s consultant Pini Zahavi, but apparently it was rather without obligation about the club’s ideas for the 33 -year -old Poland.

“Statement against statement” at FC Bayern

In any case, after the last Bundesliga game at VfL Wolfsburg (2-2), Lewandowski made it clear at the “Sky” microphone that he “received no offer” from FC Bayern – and wanted to leave Munich this summer.

Before the game, Salihamidzic had also made the change of exchange of professionals courted by FC Barcelona for the first time. However, he spoke of the fact that Lewandowski rejected an offer from the association – a classic case of “statement against statement”.

The fans of FC Bayern made it clear a few hours later on which side they are in the conflict.

On Saturday evening on Saturday evening at the title party overture in the beer garden on the Nockherberg, several hundred supporters Salihamidzic whistled loudly. For Lewandowski, on the other hand, there was “Lewy, Lewy” response choirs.

The Munich “Abendzeitung” recently reported that the consent for Salihamidzic was welding for Salihamidzic. The Bosnian’s advocate is therefore smaller. An extension of his contract expiring in 2023 has not yet been an issue, an early separation is possible.

Uli Hoeneß ‘influence protects Hasan Salihamidzic – still

How realistic this scenario really is is questionable. Hoeneß officially no longer holds an operational office at FC Bayern.

Through his seat on the supervisory board and his services to the club, his influence behind the scenes should be sufficient to keep his hand protectively over Salihamidzic – at least for the time being.

Because if the controversial Robert Lewandowskis director once again does not prove a happy hand when regulating the Lewandowski heir, his chair could really be wiggling.

Serge Gnabry before the FC Bayern departure?

Especially in the shadow of the many discussions about the future of the goal getter, another personnel question for early clarification requires that after the future of Serge Gnabry.
The national player’s contract at FC Bayern also expires in the summer of 2023.
Talks about an extension have been running for months.
However, there is still “disagreements” between the parties, as club president Herbert Hainer revealed on Sunday in the “Doppelpass” of “Robert Lewandowski1”.
In plain language: Gnabry demands more salary than FC Bayern wants to pay him.
If there is still no agreement, the club leadership does not want to go to his last contract year with the 26-year-old, but this summer does not want to go with the 26-year-old.
Salihamidzic therefore threaten other squad conversions – and FC Bayern restless weeks.
