Is Oliver Kahn really going to Saudi Arabia? After leaving Bayern, Oliver Kahn largely disappeared from the public eye. But a few days ago, a post by the former CEO of Munich created a stir. The former world class goalkeeper was a guest in Saudi Arabia.
Kahn was a guest at Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal. In the last few days, he has posted pictures with Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar. Oliver Kahn was also sharply criticized for his visit to the desert state. According to rumors, the trip to Saudi Arabia was no coincidence. The newspaper “Asharq Al-Awsat” reports that the former Bayern boss has a job offer from the Pro League.
The newspaper also reports that the German has an offer ready for signature from Al-Hilal. Oliver Kahn will become the new club boss there. The Saudi Arabian League spent a lot of money last summer to lure several stars with lucrative contracts. With Neymar arriving from Paris for around 90 million euros, they have brought in a genuine superstar.
Oliver Kahn had to step down as CEO of Bayern after last season’s disappointing performance. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic was also to accompany him. The German record champions announced their separation immediately after the victory in Cologne on the last matchday. Recently it was agreed to terminate the contract.
From this perspective, involvement in Saudi Arabia would not be a problem from a purely legal perspective. In an interview with Saudi Arabian TV station “Kora Rotana”, Kahan did not seem reluctant: “Everything is possible in life.” He cannot understand the criticism of the ongoing transfer offensive: “In my opinion, it is always good for football to create competition. Investing in football can never be a bad thing.
