BBC’s David Ornstein gives update on Arsenal exit for key German

BBC journalist David Ornstein has provided an update on the latest high-profile departure at the Emirates stadium in what is becoming a tough month for fans of the Gunners.

Unai Emery was named as Arsene Wenger’s replacement in May last year and the eight months which have followed have seen a few changes take place at the club.

The latest alteration which is expected to happen at the club is the sudden exit of head of recruitment Sven Mislintat.

The key German scout, who moved to Arsenal just over a year ago, is expected to say goodbye to the Gunners in the wake of what appears to be a dispute behind the scenes at the club.

There have been all kinds of rumours regarding what reason is behind Mislintat’s expected exit but no reliable source has revealed any information just yet.

However, to add more clarity to the situation, BBC journalist David Ornstein has provided his update on the matter.

“The Gunners are looking to appoint a technical director, for which Mislintat was expected to be a contender.” said a report from Ornstein

“But it is likely the German, 46, will be overlooked for the role and that is among the factors which could result in his departure.

“A number of potential scenarios are being discussed and no timescale has been placed on the process.

“However, sources believe that Mislintat will be the latest high-profile departure in a period of major upheaval for the club.”
