Kehl finally replaces... Kehl?

Good morning everyone! My sincerest apologies for missing last week’s Daily Bee on Wednesday, I’m sure you were all deeply sad and spent the entire day wallowing in your own despair. Don’t worry, I’m back and the highlight of your day has returned.

Okay, enough egotist nonsense, It’s time to talk Dortmund. The news today is that Sebastian Kehl is set to bring in former agent Slaven Stanic will be Kehl’s righthanded man and as a liaison between Kehl and the players. This position is very similar to the one Kehl operated in during Zorc’s final years at the club and we’ll likely see Stanic involved in contract talks following his arrival.

Stanic himself is a former player, although he spent the entirety of his career in the lower divisions of German football, before becoming an agent and player liaison at Adidas and Puma. He currently works at Projekt B, an agency group that represents Jurgen Klopp and several Bundesliga coaches amongst others. His career has seen him interact with numerous soccer personalities and he can bring some experience to the negotiating table.

It remains to be seen how involved he’ll actually be and it’s evident that he’ll be in Kehl’s backroom staff rather than a fan-facing position. It also indicates that Kehl is further filling out his team and I’m sure any additional manpower will prove beneficial.
