Kahn slams former club Bayern

Former Bayern Munich legend Oliver Kahn has slammed the club for their pursuit of Schalke's goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and appointment of Jupp Heynckes.

Bayern are ready to spend around €20 million on Neuer, viewed as one of the best young talents in the game, in the transfer window, but Kahn has reacted angrily to the news as he believes the club should wait until the stopper is available on a free transfer in a year's time.

"They will hire a very good goalkeeper, but to pay such a sum for a player who will be free in 2012, is exorbitant," Kahn told German daily Bild.

Kahn also tore into his former club for appointing 66-year-old former Bayer Leverkusen boss Heynckes in place of Dutchman Louis van Gaal.

"It's not a lasting solution," said Kahn. ''What is the thinking behind this? Where is the true philosophy? By what criteria are they recruiting players? Continuity in the coaching position is the basis for success. "At times I wonder how the players fit together. The example of Barcelona shows that we must think long-term."

Kahn, who is taking his coaching badges, also took a humorous swipe at his old rival Jens Lehmann. "We could be a super team, me as trainer and Jens as co-trainer," said Kahn. "Although, I suspect he'll want to have it the other way around."
