Arsenal and Borussia’s Former Head Did Not Negotiate Liverpool’s Sporting Director.
“there were no conversations” when it was reported that Sven Mislintat, a former head of Arsenal and Borussia, may seek the role of sports director at Liverpool, despite reports that he could do so.
According to German journalist Christian Falk, who indicated in a chat with Empire of the Kop that the club was utilised to bolster the influence of the Mislintat, this is what happened.
A little less than two weeks ago, Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg suggested that the football player, who is now 50 years old, may be a suitable replacement for Julian Ward in Stuttgart following Ward’s departure from the club.
It was a connection that raised eyebrows because to Mislintat’s poor performance in a comparable role at Arsenal; nonetheless, it was a connection that made sense due to the fact that he had a close relationship with Jurgen Klopp.
Falk claimed that there have been “no conversations” over Klopp’s move to Liverpool, despite the fact that he worked with Klopp as Dortmund’s senior scout for more than seven years. This is despite the fact that Falk worked for Dortmund.
“According to what we’ve heard, there have been no conversations with Liverpool. There was some communication, but we heard that he is not going to be your new sports director,” explained Falk. “There was some interaction.”
You should know that it is always beneficial for him. Now that he is unemployed, he is looking for work, and having connections in Liverpool gives you a better chance of moving on to the next round of discussions.
But according to what we’ve been told, there aren’t any negotiations that are really near to a conclusion right now, and if there aren’t any more, this won’t take place.
Even though Falk is not a particularly reliable source when it comes to Liverpool, it is common knowledge that his analysis of the Mislintat is correct.
