Bayern Munich have rewarded sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić for his remarkable transfer window with a new three-year contract extension until 2026.
“During his five years in the FC Bayern management, Hasan Salihamidžić has done an excellent job,” said President Herbert Hainer. “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. Our team is delighting our fans with attractive, winning football. The supervisory board is convinced that he will continue to successfully shape the sporting future of FC Bayern together with his board colleagues in the coming years.”
Bayern’s supervisory board unanimously agreed at a meeting on Monday evening to extend the contact of Salihamidžić by a further three years. The 45-year-old has been in his current role since August 2017.
Should Joshua Zirkzee leave for Bologna before Thursday’s deadline, Salihamidžić will have brought over €100m into Bayern Munich through player sales.
