Will Eberl follow Salihamidzic?: Bayern’s champion team lets it rip

Will Eberl follow Salihamidzic?
Bayern’s champion team lets it rip

After Kahn and Salihamidzic were kicked out at Bayern, rumors are already circulating about the successor: Leipzig’s sports director Max Eberl could be called to Munich. Meanwhile, the champion team wants to celebrate properly.

The FC Bayern champion team arrived late Saturday evening after the return flight from Cologne for a long night of partying at a Munich event location. The team bus drove directly into the large hall. The original Bavarian Thomas Müller was the first to come on stage with the championship trophy. “We would be ready to start the party,” said the 33-year-old offensive player to the assembled guests, including Honorary President Uli Hoeneß. Müller and his teammates were looking forward to “a drink or two or the dance floor”. National player Jamal Musiala, who scored the winning goal in Cologne’s 2-1 draw on Saturday afternoon, announced: “We’re celebrating now.”

President Herbert Hainer praised coach Thomas Tuchel’s team for their performance in the season finale, which, thanks to the Mainzer Schützenhilfe in the 2-2 win over Borussia Dortmund, was still enough to win the Munich championship for the eleventh time in a row: “What a team! It was extremely great what the team did today. Except for us, nobody in the whole republic believed in it anymore. I can only say: Chapeau men!”

Hainer also briefly commented on the separation of CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, which was announced after the end of the game: “You have to say that the season was bumpy. Starting tomorrow we’ll look ahead.” They want to cause a sensation again internationally in the coming season.

Max Eberl to succeed Salihamidzic?

According to consistent media reports, RB Leipzig’s sports director Max Eberl is said to be a candidate to succeed Salihamidzic. The TV broadcaster Sky reported that there had already been a conversation between the club managers and Eberl last week. The “Bild” newspaper also reported that Eberl was an issue in Munich. President Herbert Hainer and the designated new CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen will hold a press conference on Sunday.

Eberl only took up his post at Leipzig in December after resigning from Borussia Mönchengladbach in January 2022, citing his own exhaustion. The 49-year-old has already been considered a candidate at FC Bayern in the past.
