Three candidates named as possible replacements for Salihamidzic at Bayern

Max Eberl, Markus Krösche and Michael Reschke have been named as possible successors to outgoing Bayern Munich board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic.
After confirming the departure of board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic following Saturday's title win, Bayern Munich are now actively searching for his replacement.

Since the announcement, three names in particular have been mentioned in the German media as possible replacements: Max Eberl, Markus Krösche and Michael Reschke.

Eberl was linked with Bayern years ago when he was at Gladbach, but may be difficult to lure to the Allianz Arena at this stage, having only taken over as RB Leipzig's managing director for sport in December.

Krösche, who has been working as Eintracht Frankfurt's sporting CEO since 2021, is under contract with 'Die Adler' until 2025, has no release clause and is committed to continuing his work in his current role, Sport1 reports. Accordingly, he also seems to be hard to get.

According to Sport1, Michael Reschke is being considered as an alternative to Eberl and Krösche, with the German media outlet claiming that Bayern have already had loose contact with Reschke, who is not against the idea.

The 65-year-old Reschke would be a short-term solution and knows the club well, having served as Bayern's technical director for three years in the past. He's currently the director of the English agency Stellar Football.

Asked about Bayern's search for Salihamidzic's successor, club president Herbert Hainer recently told ARD:

"We are looking for someone of great caliber. We're already on our way, we have ideas. I am sure we will find a very good successor for Hasan.
