How did you introduce yourself and what can you expect from them in the future? Good king News lighten.
Herbert Hainer (65 years old)
Hainer is the new president of FC Bayern e.V since Friday night at 22 h 42. The former boss of Adidas has made it clear in advance: "I love this club".
Hainer, also new chairman of the supervisory board, is a man of clear words. If something does not suit him, he speaks to him directly. This is the first time that he remembers the words of Bayern members who have exceeded the deadline set for their contributions. Hainer is a businessman, diplomat and strategist. He will give peace to the club. The attack department should not be expected of him. Department simple text, however, already. Former employees consider him a realistic person, a person who gives confidence.
"I'm 65 now and I will not change anymore, just as I've been running Adidas for 15 years, so I'll try to lead FC Bayern," he said. Good king NewsRequirement.
"We have a lot in common, but also differences," added Hainer, to make a comparison with Hoeneß: "I have for example an iPad and an iPhone, I will contribute to my style." The search for coaches he has directly entrusted to the council has been entrusted to the bosses Rummenigge and Salihamidzic. Like him Good king News asked for a possible return of Pep Guardiola, he gave up a denial, before all stressed, to want to get the "best coach of Bayern Munich".

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (64)
His "friend" Hoeneß, as he called himself, bid farewell to Rummenigge.
"Mia san Uli," he said at the end of his speech. Rummenigge is now the man of the first line and his face. His power has increased again after Hoeness's retirement. He continues to expect clear messages from him. He stressed that he was eager to work with Kahn, from whom one could expect a lot.

Rummenigge will continue to support Salihamidzic as he trains Kahn. He vehemently defended the future sports director when strong criticism from Bayern members was made. Rummenigge will lead the coach's search, Salihamidzic will support him.
Rummenigge has also ventured on controversial topics on behalf of the club. He was supportive of the preservation of the Champions League in its current form, he showed the red card to racism and homophobia, and relies on sustainability. What he and Bayern need to keep in mind: The cooperation with the sponsor "Qatar Airways" is a thorn in the back of many fans.
Hasan Salihamidzic (42)
In July 2020, Salihamidzic will be allowed to call the sports director. Then, his sports director's contract will be converted.
More than ever, on Friday night, it was clear that he had the best support and the best possible promotion within the club. It does not matter what public opinion can override him. "Uli was the reference for all", Rummenigge even made a comparison with Hoeness, but "believe me one thing: Hasan is on the right track, give him the chance, he deserves it."
Hainer said: "Believe us, we have carefully evaluated Hasan's development and, more importantly, we have included development on campus." It was important to reiterate late in the evening that all members of the Supervisory Board had expressed themselves in favor of Salihamidzic's new role.
Fanlager, Salihamidzic was warmly applauded and encouraged. Nevertheless, the transfer policy and the public appearances of the sports director have sometimes been criticized. Salihamidzic will have to succeed to free himself successfully so that a public defense of the Bavarian bosses is no longer necessary. He advanced the campus. The cadre upsets the professionals he has initiated, but must first complete it successfully. In front of him are transfer pieces like Leroy Sané, Kai Havertz or Alexander Nübel.
Oliver Kahn (50)
The former world goalkeeper is not yet in post, but has already been celebrated in the Munich Olympic Hall as a pop star. Every time his name fell on the lectern, frantic acclamations followed. Clear sign: the next CEO, who will take up his duties as a member of the board of directors of FC Bayern from January of next year (contract until 2024), is considered to be a bearer of hope for a prosperous future.
"There is a lot of work to be done to justify these advances," Hoeneß said. Kahn himself did not comment on the annual general meeting. He sat in the front row next to Sailhamidzic and listened. A speaker, who had previously criticized Rummenigge, said: "We are all happy that our Oliver Kahn is coming."
How Kahn will present himself publicly during his first days and his first weeks is not yet clear. Nor, insofar as he will participate in the search for coaches.
In his "Pike Analysis" of sponsor Samsung, he asked a few days ago: "We must think about it: what football defends Bayern Munich and wants to defend, and which coach matches the best possible", We must go look for a coach who could shape his philosophy with "an era".
