RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has given an update on the club's search for a new sporting director.
RB Leipzig have an idea of who could succeed Eintracht Frankfurt-bound Markus Krösche as sporting director, according to the club's CEO, Oliver Mintzlaff.

"Of course we have set our sights on someone. But it has to be the right decision, and it has to suit everyone," Mintzlaff told Sky.
