According to a media report, Rouven Schröder is a possible candidate for the post of sports director at Bundesliga club RB Leipzig after leaving FC Schalke 04 next year. A trace of the new RB sports director Max Eberl's search for support led to Schröder, reported the "Bild" (Friday).
Eberl officially takes up his job as sports director at RB on December 15, almost a year after his retirement from Borussia Mönchengladbach. The name Schröders also came up during his time in Gladbach, Eberl recently told the "Welt am Sonntag". "I spoke out against it at the time. In retrospect, that was a mistake because we could have spread the tasks over two more shoulders."
