The Ex-Footballer “Ali Karimi” presenting his sport clothes brand in the capital
In the 2006–07 season, Karimi was often kept on the bench. Karimi expressed his belief that it was his last season with Bayern and his contract was not going to be renewed. Red Bull Salzburg offered Karimi a contract, which he rejected. Al-Ahli also made an official bid for him, which was eventually vetoed by Felix Magath as Munich’s midfield was depleted by the sudden retirement of Sebastian Deisler. On 29 May 2007, Bayern Munich announced Karimi was leaving the club, though his new club was not yet known.
