JAKARTA - Chelsea are reportedly delaying their efforts to recruit a new sports director after being rejected by Christoph Freund who now works at Red Bull Salzburg.
The Premier League club will postpone the search until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar ends.
Previously, the boss of Todd Boehly and his right-hand man Behed Eghbali had traveled the world looking for the right candidate to replace Marina Granovskia at Chelsea.
Later, the new sports director will have the task of buying big names and potential talents to join Cheslea.
Previously, Boehly hoped that this figure could be obtained before the 2022 World Cup so that the new director could directly monitor the grand event to see the player who has the potential to be recruited in the January stock exchange.
The choice then fell to Freund. The candidate was already spoken to, but then he refused. Freund chose to stay in Salzburg.
The Steidten team from Bayer Leverkusen is also linked with a move to the Blues. However, it seems Chelsea wants to be more patient in finding the right candidate.
Currently, Chelsea manager Graham Potter is rumored to be helping with the recruitment process. Boehly is also looking for technical directors to help Potter at higher levels.
