Breaking News: Sven Mislintat to leave Arsenal
In a statement released by the club on it’s official site, it has been confirmed that the club’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat will be leaving the club on February 8, 2019.
This has come as a shock to many, as the man who came into the club just little over a year ago (Dec 1, 2017) and immediately made an impact in first bringing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window has been allowed to leave without any explanation.
Sven Mislintat who held the same position at Borussia Dortmund before joining the gunners has always been known for his eye for spotting a talent, recently recruiting the likes of Lucas Torreira and 19 year old Matteo Guenduozi.
The club’s statement reads:
“Sven has been with us since December 1, 2017 and has done a truly outstanding job in helping us recruit players who are making a big impact now and will do so even more in the future.
We wish him every success for the future and thank him for his extremely hard work on behalf of Arsenal”.
Sven said: “It’s been an amazing experience to work at a great club like Arsenal in what has been a big time of change. I am excited about what the future holds for the club and am looking forward to new challenges for myself.”
