Hermann Gerland has stated that he left Bayern before the end of his contract.
“The initiative came from me. I approached Karl-Heinz Rummenigge,” said the outgoing co-trainer of the Munich team World.
Rummenigge and he had come to the conclusion that “we will let the contract, which is dated until 2022, expire. With interruptions, I worked for FC Bayern for a total of 25 years and spent great years here”.
However, he will not retire now: “I always joke: I will work until 92, then I will only go into partial retirement,” he said.
After 25 years with the club, Gerland is leaving FC Bayern.
