RB Leipzig: Will Eberl join earlier than planned?

Max Eberl could join RB Leipzig earlier than planned. It was originally agreed that Eberl would take up his post as Managing Director Sport on December 15th.

As Sky now reports, the recent release of technical director Christopher Vivell could accelerate Eberl's start. Vivell, who is probably drawn to Chelsea, leaves an unexpected gap that the former Gladbach manager with his sporting skills will probably close better today than tomorrow. Sky says that Eberl's earlier entry is "quite likely".

During the Champions League game against Celtic Glasgow on Tuesday evening, the 49-year-old was seen live for the first time at a game played by his new employer in the stadium. After leaving Gladbach for health reasons, Eberl had originally planned to return to the football business next summer. However, RB CEO Oliver Mintzlaff convinced the ex-professional to move to Leipzig earlier. According to media reports, the Saxons transferred around five million euros to the Lower Rhine as a transfer fee.

Kicker had already reported in mid-September that Mintzlaff had wanted to persuade his new sporting manager to take office immediately. Eberl turned down the request in view of the high stress caused by the English weeks in the run-up to the World Cup.
