Bayern Munich News Latest: Bayern have appointed a replacement for Hasan Salihamidzic, following his sacking in May

Bayern Munich has announced the appointment of Christoph Freund as their new sporting director.

The Bundesliga team revealed on Tuesday that Freund, who currently holds the same position at Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga, will assume his new role on September 1st.

Bayern Munich terminated the contracts of CEO Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic in May, immediately after securing their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title on the final day of the season. Freund, who has been with Salzburg for 17 years, will take over from Salihamidzic as Bayern’s new executive.

“We are convinced that he is the right person to strengthen the team in the future, together with Thomas Tuchel’s coaching team and technical director Marco Neppe,” Bayern’s CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen said in a statement.

“It has been mutually agreed with Red Bull Salzburg, where Christoph Freund has done an outstanding job, that he will still fully shape the current transfer period with his long-time employer and will not join us until the beginning of September.”
