Now it’s official. Max Eberl becomes sports director at FC Bayern. There are a number of construction sites waiting for the 50-year-old in Munich. In addition, the record champions announced a change in the structure.

The commitment of Max Eberl as the new sports director of FC Bayern Munich is perfect. As the German football record champions announced on Monday evening, the 50-year-old will start working at his youth club on March 1st. Eberl signed a contract with the Munich team until the summer of 2027. The long-time Mönchengladbach manager who most recently worked for Leipzig has long been considered FC Bayern’s preferred candidate.

The FC Bayern supervisory board made the final decision to sign Eberl on Monday evening. The Munich team will pay a transfer fee; according to dpa information, RB should be able to book a total of 4.5 million euros. As a sports director, Eberl will be particularly challenged when it comes to hiring a new coach. At the end of the season, the German series champions will part ways with coach Thomas Tuchel. The Munich team will introduce their new sports director on Tuesday (11 a.m.) at a press conference in the Allianz Arena.

“I spent my entire childhood and youth at FC Bayern and in Munich, so it is special for me to now return to the club where it all began in a new role. The task as sports director is a great challenge that I will approach with a lot of respect and humility, but with even more anticipation,” Eberl was quoted as saying in the statement.

The club management had already announced the implementation of the personnel changes on Saturday for the beginning of the week. Sport is at the “front row” at the club, said President Herbert Hainer. “We are convinced that he will successfully shape and shape the future of this club,” said Hainer on Monday.

By signing Eberl, the Munich-based team has clarified an important personnel detail during the restructuring of the management team. The renovation became necessary after the club parted ways with CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidžić at the end of May last year. Kahn’s position was taken over by long-time finance chief Jan-Christian Dreesen, while Salihamidžić’s position remained vacant until now. “More competence and quality in management” can basically only do good, said Dreesen on Saturday. “I believe that we will achieve a lot together as a team,” said the 56-year-old.

Sudden farewell from Leipzig

Eberl’s commitment had become apparent. This has long been very popular with Honorary President Uli Hoeneß. Hoeneß also emphasized last year that “for the next six to twelve months we will have the staffing that the future should have.” Christoph Freund, who was signed by RB Salzburg in September, is the Munich team’s sports director. “A very experienced man, a good guy. If that’s the case, I’m looking forward to working together,” said Freund when asked about Eberl after the 2-1 win against Leipzig. We will “work well together as a team”.

Eberl, who was born in Lower Bavaria, played for FC Bayern’s amateur team in the early 1990s and also played professionally for Munich. After the commitment, the FCB board consists of three people. In addition to CEO Dreesen and sports director Eberl, the committee will also include Michael Diederich from the summer onwards. “With the new organizational structure that we have decided on for our board in the supervisory board, we will create lean and efficient structures that enable quick coordination and dynamic decisions,” said Bayern President and Supervisory Board Chairman Herbert Hainer. “It’s important to us at FC Bayern to always be able to act quickly.”

Leipzig parted ways with Eberl at the end of September shortly before the top game against FC Bayern. From the RB bosses’ point of view, the reason was Eberl’s lack of commitment to Leipzig.
