Munich (DPA) – Longtime buddy, Edmund Stoiber, has called the reasons for Uli Hoeness's withdrawal from Bayern Munich's leading club.

Unlike Hoeness, the CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was not clearly positioned to coach Niko Kovac, which also gave no guarantee of employment. Private and personal motivations also influenced Hoeneß's decision, Stoiber said. He sits on the board like Hoeneß. In addition, the former prime minister is chairman of the advisory board of the German football champion.

Hoeness wishes to inform the supervisory board on Thursday of its future plans. It is expected that the 67-year-old will no longer run for president at the end of November and resigns as chairman of the supervisory board. Both offices will take over former Adidas director, Herbert Hainer. He hopes "a lot of approval" for Hainer. Hoeneß wants to stay on the board and continue to exercise influence. "In the required reserve", as Stoiber says.

At the annual general meeting last year, there had been criticism and criticism of Hoeneß, who had hit the club's longtime boss a lot. He also alluded to this on Wednesday, while he was being celebrated by fans with songs. "It was surprising in this ambiguity, it was not quite that one year ago," Hoeneß said. Stoiber revealed that he had tried four times to re-connect Hoeneß. "But he decided."
