He’s in his third year at the Campus, knows the club, knows how things are run, and brings the experience of more than 15 years as a player in professional football. In his role, Halil will continue to develop the Campus. I’m looking forward to working together and wish him all the best for this new and – for FC Bayern – important role.”
