Hard blow for Chelsea. Once interested in Luis Campos, the Blues had finally set their sights on Christoph Freund (Salzburg) to make him their sporting director. But while the latter seemed to have reached an agreement with the London club, Freund has finally announced on the Austrian club’s official website that he has made the decision to stay.
“As I have already confirmed in interviews, Chelsea FC were interested in me. When such a big club asks me, it not only honors me, but also honors the work of FC Red Bull Salzburg. This is of course also a fact involving personal considerations. But I have come to the conclusion that FC Red Bull Salzburg is the best place and a change is out of the question for me. We are in the middle of a very intense phase and we have important tasks to fulfill in the Bundesliga, the Cup and the Champions League, that is what my focus is. »
Wir stecken mitten in einer höchst intensive Phase und haben wichtige Aufgaben in Bundesliga, Cup and Champions League zu erledigen – darauf richten sich mein ganzer Fokus und meine ganze Konzentration.“ (3/3)
