Sven Mislintat is set to return to the Bundesliga with reports in Germany claiming he’s been offered the Sporting Director role at Stuttgart.
Kicker claims the 46-year-old will be charged with revamping the squad at the Mercedes Benz Arena this summer, thinning out the current player roster and bringing in new recruits.
Stuttgart are currently in the Bundesliga relegation zone, so if there isn’t a turnaround in the coming months he could be doing this for a second tier team.
Mislintat left his role at Arsenal on 8 February after 14 months as the club’s Head of Recruitment. It’s said he made his decision to leave after being overlooked for the Technical Director position; a role Raul Sanllehi is yet to fill having failed with an attempt to sign Monchi.
During his time at the Emirates, we signed three players, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sokratis, with connections to his former club Borussia Dortmund, goalkeeper Bernd Leno and the lesser-known Dinos Mavropanos, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira.
