Well we saw this news coming and now it is official. Dortmund’s Chief scout Sven Mislintat has left the club to join Arsenal in the EPL. Sven has been a pivotal front office staffer for BVB uncovering some of our most important talents. The front office valued him so highly that in a fight between him and Tuchel they chose him, this being one of the main reasons Tuchel was sacked. With a rough two months for BVB the news is only getting worse. With a potential change in manager and sporting director also coming this year Dortmund is looking at a total rebuild.
With Sven leaving, this iteration of BVBs front office that has guided us from the Klopp years onward seems to be coming to a close. Hopefully the ship will be set right soon and we can luck out on some new players and staff. If not, we are looking at a post 2003 BVB situation or worse.
