Bayern are Bundesliga champions however, is not going to help Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn. Both have reportedly been sacked, according to Maximillian Koch of AZ. Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge are back in the driver's seats. The new era of FC Bayern is looking a lot like the old one.

You could see Brazzo's expression change at half time, he may have already known by then. If this report is true, then he leaves with a relatively mixed record as sporting director.


The treble was won with many of his signings and he was personally responsible for bringing in Jamal Musiala from Chelsea FC, who scored the Bundesliga winning goal this season. His tenure will be judged in posterity.

Oliver Kahn, meanwhile, will not be looked on anywhere near as charitably. Being the chief architect of the Nagelsmann sacking and bringing in Thomas Tuchel, many see him as the reason for Bayern's horrible season. Some may think he's been made a scapegoat, but rumors of his sacking have been circulating for ages.

Kahn wasn't at the RheinEnergieStadion for the final game of the season as Bayern secured their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title due to having the flu. His successor has already been determined.

It was decided at a supervisory board meeting, called at short notice, that Jan-Christian Dreesen, most recently CFO and Deputy CEO, will succeed Kahn. The 55-year-old has been at the club since 2013.
