Ex-President Uli Hoeness and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge see the German football record champion FC Bavaria Munich still well positioned in 30 years.
“Even if a crisis should arise, we immediately have people who could catch it, who would do their job. And that is why we can be very confident for the foreseeable future,”said 68-year-old Hoeness in a double interview in member magazine”51”.
Rummenigge added:”The quality of leadership associated with the quality of man will lead to the FC Bavaria will continue to be successful in the future.”
The interview was conducted on the occasion of the upcoming 120-year existence of the association on the 27th of February.
The 64-year-old Rummenigge further stressed,”that a football club must remain primarily a football club”. If he became a football-playing brand or even a football-playing group, the Bavarian fans would not accept it.
“I think the really nice thing about FC Bavaria is that everything has developed very slowly and sustainably,” Hoeness said. “I think the real beauty of FC Bavaria is that everything has developed very slowly and sustainably.” The club is not shot out of the ground like a mushroom, but rather grew slowly. This was healthy.”
Hoeness had been the player and manager of FC Bavaria for decades. Last November he handed over the presidency to Herbert Hainer.
Ex-pro Rummenigge is still Chief Executive until the end of 2021. He is to be followed by former national goalkeeper Oliver Kahn. Since the beginning of the year Kahn has been working in a responsible position with the association.
