Soccer-Kahn appointed to Bayern board, to take over as CEO in 2022

Aug 30 (Reuters) - Former Bayern Munich captain Oliver Kahn is set to return to the club as a board member next year and will take over as chief executive in 2022, the German Bundesliga club said on Friday.

Kahn, who won eight league titles between 1994 and 2008 at Bayern, signed a five-year contract after the board voted unanimously in favour of the move in Thursday’s meeting.

When Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s contract expires on Dec. 31, 2021, Kahn will take over from him as chairman and CEO. (Reporting by Hardik Vyas in Bengaluru; editing by Amlab Chakraborty)
