"
In order to reintroduce a recognizable game philosophy to the team, Kahn recommends "very, very much to think" in the decision-making process for the new coach. Because it has to be about getting a coach who can possibly shape an era again. And I think that's something you can not shoot so easily right now. That's something you have to think about now, "says Kahn, who returns to FC Bayern starting in January.
