Report: Mislintat on the verge of returning to Dortmund

Ruhr Nachrichten reports that Sven Mislintat's return to Borussia Dortmund is imminent.
Borussia Dortmund are reportedly close to finalizing a deal with Sven Mislintat that will see him return to the club.

According to local publication Ruhr Nachrichten, the deal is as good as done, with only minor details remaining.

Exactly what role Mislintat will take on at Dortmund is unclear at the moment, but the newspaper has previously suggested that he could serve as a lead squad planner.

Other sources, however, suggest that Mislintat will more likely be an advisor without much decision-making power.

Mislintat worked for Dortmund in various roles between 1998 and 2017. He was director of professional football and scout when he left for Arsenal in December 2017.

Since then, he has worked as a technical director and, most recently, as a technical director at Ajax. He's currently unemployed.
