Max Eberl’s Bundesliga comeback is apparently getting closer: Max Eberl is getting loud sky-Information on December 1st of this year after his break from the football business, the new sports director at the DFB Cup winner RB Leipzig. However, there is no confirmation from the Saxons, a commitment from Eberl has been announced sky already given. To SIDinformation, there are still some open details to be clarified.
The 48-year-old, who has been a successful manager at Borussia Mönchengladbach for many years, is likely to receive a long-term contract with RB. Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann, himself a coach at RB, said at the press conference before the cup game at Viktoria Köln: “Max Eberl is a cool guy, Leipzig is a cool club. In my opinion, that goes well together.”
Since Markus Krösche left Eintracht Frankfurt, the sporting director post at RB had been orphaned. On January 28, Eberl left Gladbach for health reasons after 23 years as a player and official. “I’m exhausted and tired and can’t work anymore,” Eberl said at the time and announced that he would take a longer break.
In mid-August, Leipzig’s club boss Oliver Mintzlaff announced a timely decision on the sports director issue. Someone is coming, “because we need him too. RB Leipzig has a strong, sporty man, a figurehead,” the 46-year-old emphasized, but recently did not confirm an agreement with Eberl.
The five-time champion from Mönchengladbach recently denied an official request for Eberl through Vice President Rainer Bonhof. There is a transfer fee in the double-digit million range, which Borussia could call for Eberl when moving to Leipzig.
From the point of view of ex-Gladbacher Stefan Effenberg, Eberl should also be worth a high price to the cup winner. Because Eberl “proved in Gladbach what an excellent manager he is and could take Leipzig to a new level again,” Effenberg recently wrote in his t-online-Column.
The former national player is basically certain that ex-professional Eberl “will return to the Bundesliga stage in the foreseeable future. If that’s going to be in Leipzig, that can only be good for RB”.
