On the Move
FC Bayern stick with Sporting Director Salihamidžić until 2026
by Jonathan Rest

Hasan Salihamidžić has been rewarded with a new three-year contract as Bayern Munich Sporting Director, after a successful summer of recruitment for the Bundesliga champions.

During his five years in the FC Bayern management, Hasan Salihamidžić has done an excellent job. He is constantly advancing the sporting side of our first team and young talents, both structurally and personnel-wise. As well as our targets on the pitch, he always keeps in mind the financial conditions.
Herbert Hainer
Chairman, FC Bayern Munich

The 45-year-old will now stay in the role until at least June 30, 2026, the board has announced.

 

He has been Sporting Director at Bayern since August 2017, and still had one year to run on his existing contract.

 

Salihamidžić, who spent a decade with the club as a player, said: "My goal and that of my colleagues on the board of directors, whom I also want to thank, is to offer our partners and fans a competitive team and successful at national and international level every season, based on the economic reason. I will continue to give everything to achieve it: we are on the right track."

 

Herbert Hainer, Chairman of the Board, added: "During his five years in the FC Bayern management, Hasan Salihamidžić has done an excellent job. He is constantly advancing the sporting side of our first team and young talents, both structurally and personnel-wise. As well as our targets on the pitch, he always keeps in mind the financial conditions. Hasan Salihamidžić gives everything for FC Bayern 24 hours a day. He represents the FC Bayern DNA, continuity and titles."

 

This summer Salihamidžić oversaw the sale of star striker Robert Lewandowski to FC Barcelona, securing a fee of around €50m for the 34-year-old, and led the process for Bayern to sign star players Sadio Mané and Matthijs de Ligt, and young talents Ryan Gravenberch and Mathys Tel.
