After 19 years, Rummenigge leaves Bayern Munich
Media reports said today, Tuesday, that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge will leave the presidency of Bayern Munich at the end of this June, six months before the scheduled date. Oliver Kahn, a former Bayern goalkeeper who has been a member of the board of directors since January 2020, will take over the presidency of the club, replacing Rummenigge. Oliver Kahn was scheduled to take over from Rummenigge at the end of this year, but Rummenigge said that summer was “the most strategic and most logical time” to hand over the tasks. “We are at the end of a working year and, at the same time, at the beginning of a new period with a new technical staff,” Rummenigge said. The new season should be the responsibility of Oliver Kahn as the new CEO from the start. This is how it should be.” Rummenigge played for Bayern Munich between 1974 and 1984, and he will leave the club after 30 years in management positions, where he held several executive positions since 1991, while he chaired the Bayern Munich board of directors since 2002. During his career as a player and manager, Rummenigge won 12 international titles, 21 league titles and 14 cup titles with Bayern.
