Oliver Kahn set to take over Bayern Munich




Kahn

Ex-Germany goalkeeper Oliver Kahn will join Bayern Munich’s board in January to be groomed to replace club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the Bundesliga giants announced Friday amid a backroom upheaval.

The appointment of Kahn, who played for Bayern from 1994 until 2008, was approved by Bayern’s board late Thursday, just hours after club president Uli Hoeness, 67, officially informed the club that he is stepping down in November.

Current chairman Rummenigge, 63, will eventually hand the reins to Kahn on December 31, 2021, after showing his successor the ropes, while former Adidas boss Herbert Hainer is poised to replace Hoeness as club president in the November elections.
