According to a media report, Max Eberl will be the new sports director at DFB Cup winners RB Leipzig. As the TV broadcaster Sky reported, the 48-year-old had given his commitment and should take up his post as Managing Director Sport on December 1st.
The commitment of the former manager of Borussia Mönchengladbach should take place "promptly". Until then, the last contractual details would have to be finally clarified.
Million transfer fee to Gladbach
Leipzig paid a fee to his former club Borussia Mönchengladbach for Eberl's commitment. According to reports, this should be between eight and ten million euros. Eberl resigned as sporting director at Borussia at the end of January, citing health reasons. However, his contract, which ran until 2026, was not terminated, it was only suspended. The 48-year-old was still employed by Gladbach, but did not receive any salary.
In Leipzig, the ex-professional is closing a gap that has existed for more than a year and is ending a long search for a successor to Markus Krösche, who went to Eintracht Frankfurt.
