East German radio broadcaster "Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk" reports that former FSV Mainz and FC Schalke 04 sporting director Rouven Schröder is about to join the managerial team at RB Leipzig.

After parting company with FC Schalke 04 earlier this season, Schröder has made clear in numerous interviews that he wishes to remain active as a German footballing functionary. It remains unclear what sort of position the 47-year-old will assume on Eberl's team. Schröder remains under contract with Schalke, meaning that the cash-strapped Königsblauen can expect some compensation from the German Red Bulls.
The report suggests that Schröder will be introduced soon.
