Oliver Mintzlaff sucht einen Sportdirektor.

Leipzig. According to CEO Oliver Mintzlaff, RB Leipzig will start the next season of the Bundesliga without a sporting director. “I think it is out of the question that we will have a replacement in the sporting director position by the start of the season. There is a shortlist that does not include people sitting at home waiting for a call to their next job,” sports image (Wednesday). The issue of timing plays a more important role. Time and opportunity must meet, and we don’t allow ourselves to be rushed.”


In fact, the club chose a much faster solution. Muntzlaff declared himself in a video conference at the end of April: “There are preliminary discussions I’ve already had. I’m relatively sure we’ll be able to announce the name soon.”

Markus Crouch has left Leipzig and is now sports director at Eintracht Frankfurt. Currently, the sport’s commercial director, Florian Schulz, and head coach Christopher Vivel are in charge of the district. But it shouldn’t be a permanent solution, Muntzlaff said. “We want and will continue to rely on the three-way constellation, which has proven itself.” They are looking for someone who “has a stable smell, for example, who was himself a professional.”
