The FC Bayern Munich AG supervisory board unanimously agreed at a meeting on Monday evening to extend the contract of board member for sport Hasan Salihamidžić, 45, by three more years until 30 June 2026. The former Bayern player became sporting director in August 2017, and was appointed to the FC Bayern Munich AG board on 1 July 2020 for an initial three years.

Herbert Hainer: “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. 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.”

Hasan Salihamidžić: “I would like to thank the supervisory board for their trust, especially supervisory board chairman Herbert Hainer, who has supported my ideas and plans at every juncture. I’ve always said: I love FC Bayern, Munich is my home. I’m very pleased that we can continue our very good and productive collaboration until 2026. It's my goal and the goal of my board colleagues - who I’d also like to thank - to give our members and fans a team that is competitive and successful domestically and internationally every season, based on sound financial sense. I will continue to give everything to achieve that - we’re on a very good path.”

Since Salihamidžić has been in charge of the sporting department, FC Bayern have won five Bundesliga titles, the DFB Cup twice as well as the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup during the historic sextuple year 2020/21. He played for FCB from 1998 to 2007 and, like current CEO Oliver Kahn and club ambassador Giovane Elber, was part of the team that won the Champions League in 2001 in Milan.
