A rough year for Dortmund gets rougher. Reports from Kicker say that Arsenal are in talks with BVB chief scout Sven Mislintat for the same job. This would be absolutely devastating for BVB. Mislintat is one of the top scouts in the world and is one of the major reasons BVB are universally knows as the best team at finding unknown talent. If we were to truly lost him, Watzke and Zorc would be in big trouble when it came to them looking to build the team in the future. With talent always looking elsewhere, Mislintat has been critical in keeping BVB successful by always finding the next star. For example, he found us Lewy then found Auba as the replacement. A major reason Tuchel was fired was because him and Mislintat not getting along. Not only would losing him make the loss of Tuchel a bigger blow but it would really shake confidence people have in Watzke.

Lets hope our head scout stays...or there may be more trouble ahead for the Black and Yellows.
