2022 Michael Zorc will vacate his post as BVB sports director. Instead of Sebastian Kehl, an old friend could now return to Dortmund.

So far, Sebastian Kehl has been the favorite to succeed sporting director Michael Zorc at BVB. But now an old friend could join the race: According to Ruhr Nachrichten, Sven Mislintat could return to Borussia Dortmund .

Sebastian Kehl has been the head of the licensed players area at Borussia Dortmund since 2018. Since Michael Zorc will leave his post as sports director in the summer of 2022, was seen as the logical successor to Kehl.

Kehl had already said at the beginning of January: "All in all, of course, I have the confidence to do the job and I am convinced that I can handle it well." Kehl also underlined "that I would like to take on more responsibility here".

But its promotion is obviously by no means a done deal. The Ruhr Nachrichten reports that managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke is currently considering an alternative. Accordingly, Sven Mislintat should possibly be brought back to BVB.

He was already working as a scout for Dortmund until November 2017, before he left for Arsenal on the island and is now sports director for VfB Stuttgart. There he has a contract until 2023, but should also have an exit clause.

BVB: Meeting with Mislintat in March

According to information from Ruhr Nachrichten, there should be a meeting between the BVB leadership and Mislintat in March.

For BVB it would be the second seminal setting in the sporting field after coach Marco Rose had been announced for the coming season at the beginning of the week.
