Post: Kahn’s confidant must go too


FC Bayern is not coming to rest. According to media reports, the club has now released Oliver Kahn’s confidant, Moritz Mattes.

Following the departure of sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and CEO Oliver Kahn, FC Bayern has apparently also released Kahn’s office manager and close confidant, Moritz Mattes. This is reported by the newspaper “Bild”.

Mattes was seen as an important adviser to Kahn.

Mattes coordinated FC Bayern’s international affairs and is considered a key advisor to former CEO Kahn. Chief of Staff—as Mattes’ official job title—didn’t appear much in public. His appearance within the club was controversial, as several media reported.

Honorary President Uli Hoeneß recently spoke of “a catastrophic bad mood” that Kahn’s advisers said were partly responsible. Hoeneß did not give any specific names.

Squad planner Neppe can stay

While Mattes’ future should be sealed, Salihamidzic’s confidant Marco Neppe is probably still open. Under the former sporting director, the squad planner was promoted first to head of the scouting department and later to head coach.

Salihamidzic continued to support the 36-year-old even after his release: “He is a part of Bayern Munich and he has to stay that way.”
