Uli Hoeneb is known for his impulsiveness. On Sunday, the Bayern President annoyed about statements in Sport1 double pass – and indignantly grabbed the phone.
Bayern Munich's President Uli Hoeneb has caused a stir and irritation with a call in the football talk round "Doppelpass" of Sport1.
The 67-year-old revolted on Sunday to the questions of moderator Thomas Helmer especially about the fact that the panel of experts in the debate over the German champions after the 4: 0 in the Bundesliga top match against Borussia Dortmund had unduly dealt with sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.
"I have the following in my heart, that large parts of the round are very disrespectful about Hasan Salihamidzic say," said Hoeness connected live. He campaigned intensely for the 42-year-old, who since the end of July 2017, the office as sports director exercises and should be decided on its promotion to Sport Board on Monday.
Hoeneb praises transfers from Salihamidzic
"Hasan did a good job this year," Hoeneb said. He named the transfers of French World Champion Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez and young Canadian Alphonso Davies, who were "up to his own heels".
"We are happy to have made sensational transfers with these three players," Hoeneb said. Salihamidzic would be "too bad in public perception," rang the outgoing president and assured: "With him we will have a lot of fun at Bayern."
"We are a pretty democratic club"
The Bayern Supervisory Board, which is still managed by Hoeneb, will also decide on Monday to accept Salihamidzic in the management board headed by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. "That's one thing on the agenda," Hoeneb confirmed. After the meeting, the decision is communicated: "We are a fairly democratic club."
The annual general meeting on Friday in the Munich Olympiahalle he looks, according to his own words "totally euphoric" against. "The crew could not give a better invitation card to our members for the assembly," Hoeneb said.
The 67-year-old will not stand for election at the general meeting again. The new president will be former Adidas boss Herbert Hainer. The 65-year-old Niederbayer should replace Hoeness thereafter as head of the supervisory board. Hoeneb wants to continue to belong to the control committee as a simple member. Hainer is already Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board. (Hub / dpa)
