Chelsea look set to finish the signing of Christoph Freund from RB Salzburg as their new director of soccer (DOF).
I consider it is a actual assertion of intent from the brand new homeowners, who’ve already gone via a summer time of large adjustments on the membership since shopping for it firstly of the summer time.
Todd Boehly and co may need made some choices that haven’t been the most well-liked, largely the sacking of Thomas Tuchel. However their intentions are clear, and that’s to construct a membership from high to backside who’re able to compete on the very high once more and succeed on all ranges. And in the event that they need to get wherever close to a membership resembling Manchester Metropolis, they’ve numerous work to do.
Satirically, Erling Haaland, who’s scoring for enjoyable for Metropolis proper now, was a participant discovered by Freund at RB Salzburg, and he’s simply the tip of the iceberg of a number of the enormous abilities that the Austrian director is chargeable for discovering.
Another massive abilities he discovered are Sadio Mane, Konrad Laimer, Dayot Upamecano, Karim Adeyemi, Marcel Sabitzer, Patson Daka, Naby Keita, Benjamin Sesko, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Enock Mwepu simply to call extra.
It’s clear that he’s the proper type of DOF that Boehly is on the lookout for, particularly the truth that he’s a eager person of information and video evaluation to scout gamers, one thing that the previous Chelsea regime didn’t accomplish that a lot.
Freund is an actual innovator in his discipline and an knowledgeable at what he does. That is nice information for Chelsea followers, who will be excited for this additional present of ambition from our new homeowners.
