Former professional Halil Altintop has been working for FC Bayern for around two years now. In Munich, the 39-year-old was last in charge of the youth B teams as an assistant coach. Now the record champions have given him a new job.
As reported by “Sport Bild”, Halil Altintop will take on the newly created job of transition coordinator at FC Bayern in the future. From now on, the former professional should increasingly take care of the talents of the Munich team in order to make the transition to the professional field easier for them.
Altintop should not only give the young players regular feedback, but also be the point of contact for the status quo and the future planning of the young players. Means: With the former professional, the teenagers can carefully feel what their chances of making the leap into the first team of the record champions are.
According to “Sport Bild”, the 39-year-old should be in close contact with coach Julian Nagelsmann and campus managers Jochen Sauer and Holger Seitz in order to be able to give the young players well-founded feedback.
That’s what FC Bayern hopes for from Altintop
With the installation, the Munich team is pursuing a simple but important goal: with Altintop’s help, it should be prevented that a talented youngster somehow slips through the cracks and, in the worst case, even leaves FC Bayern for free.
Even if the path to the first team is blocked, the people of Munich want to focus more on the youngsters again, especially since the cases of Angelo Stiller, Niklas Dorsch and Milos Pantovic have shown that transfer fees can also be generated with players who may not have the class for the Champions League.
The players in question have left the record champions on a free transfer in recent years, but have now developed a certain standing and market value with other clubs. Altintop’s job is to ensure that FC Bayern does not go away empty-handed with this type of player in the future.
