MUNICH – Bayern Munich are continuing to plan with the return of former goalkeeper Oliver Kahn as club chairman when Karl-Heinz Rummenigge retires in two years.
"It's ongoing," Kahn told broadcaster ZDF late Saturday and clarified that meant "we're in good talks."
The advisory board of Bayern had already agreed his return, according to Kahn, while Rummenigge confirmed: "The plan is that Olli will be my successor."
Talking to Sky, Rummenigge said that Kahn "sometime, at a time which is not yet fixed or is not yet known to me, will be worked in by me."
Kahn, 49, has a sterling playing career behind him and knows Bayern well but Rummenigge said work would be required to take on a leadership role at the top level.
