Oliver Kahn: Ex-Bayern boss still collects a fat severance payment

Oliver Kahn’s exit at the end of last season caused a lot of unrest at Bayern Munich. Despite the last-minute championship, those responsible on the Isar pulled the ripcord and parted ways with club boss Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. While the separation from the Bosnian was amicable, Kahn did not cope well with being kicked out. The ex-FCB professional briefly exchanged blows with the people of Munich.

In the past few weeks things have become much quieter around Kahn. As reported by “Sport Bild”, the relationship between Kahn and FC Bayern has relaxed again. According to the newspaper, there was an exchange between President Herbert Hainer and Kahn during the summer break. Particularly interesting: The ex-CEO and Bayern have agreed on an early termination of the contract.

Kahn will receive 4 to 5 million euros as a severance payment

The 54-year-old would actually be tied to the record champions until December 31, 2024. According to “Sport Bild” information, Kahn received a corresponding severance payment for the dissolution. This should amount to four to five million euros. The FCB still saved almost one million euros, since Kahn would have received a salary of almost six million euros by the end of 2024.

Hainer commented on this as follows: “I was in contact with Oliver several times after the end of the season, we reached a harmonious agreement on terminating his contract. It was all amicable.” Despite the ugly end, according to the 69-year-old, Kahn will remain “a Bayern legend” and “always be part of the FC Bayern family”.
