Munich, Aug 1: Bayern Munich have appointed former midfielder Hasan Salihamidzic as their new Sporting Director, the German record champions confirmed in an official statement.
After a long back and forth on the vacant position of the Sporting Director, Bayern Munich on Monday disclosed that Hasan Salihamidzic will fill the position after putting pen to paper on a three-year deal until summer 2020, reports Xinhua news agency.
“With Hasan we have a Sporting Director, who already knows the club very well. He is an integral, very industrious, serious and loyal person, who speaks five languages. We have the total confidence that he does the job the way he has to do it,” Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.
Salihamidzic knows the club very well indeed as he played nine years — from 1998 until 2007 — for the “Bavarians” where he made overall 234 appearances to provide 36 assists and 30 goals. IANS
