Distribution of tasks at FC Bayern: After Eberl’s signing – what will happen to Christoph Freund?

As of: February 27, 2024 5:41 p.m

Max Eberl is the new sports director at FC Bayern and at the same time competition for sports director Christoph Freund. In the future, both will have to share the sporting business. Both have a similar profile.

During his introduction in the Munich Arena, the new sports director Max Eberl was visibly keen to mention Christoph Freund at every opportunity. He tackles the tasks “with Christoph”. “We will both push the squad forward. (…) We will try to make good suggestions. We will try to win the players for Bayern.” He spoke of “we” all the time, and only very rarely of “I”. Eberl vehemently objected to the possible disempowerment of Christoph Freund.

Team player Eberl

“Hierarchies don’t play any roles in my world,” replied the new sports director when asked about working with sports director Christoph Freund. They want to “get the best out of Bayern Munich together.” He quickly realized that he alone was “not a savior.” “I am someone who can work very well in a team. (…) I need the expertise of the people around me.” People like Christoph Freund, who started working at Säbener Straße in September and now has to share the sporting power after less than half a year.

Eberl and friend: two talented truffle pigs

The transfer phase in the winter took place under the direction of the Austrian. He initiated transfers such as the signing of Eric Dier and Sacha Boey. In the future, Max Eberl will probably be responsible for the operational transfer business. Like Freund, it is said that you have an eye for talent. In Mönchengladbach, Eberl discovered the young Granit Xhaka and Marco Reus, and in Leipzig last summer he put together one of the youngest squads in the league with talents like Xavi Simons and Lois Openda.

Talented truffle pig Freund has also discovered some gems. In Salzburg he brought in talents like Erling Haaland and Dayot Upamecano, who currently plays for Munich. Dominik Szoboszlai, now working for Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool FC, also took his first steps in professional football on the Salzach.

Friend as a bridge to the FC Bayern campus

At FC Bayern, Freund is supposed to form the bridge to the campus, the Munich youth training center (NLZ). Through him, the record champions want to introduce more talent from their own youth to the first team in the future. Eberl praised his future partner highly: “Christoph is an absolute expert and I am extremely happy that he is already here and that the club has chosen him.” Eberl promises that in the future we will act “on an equal footing”. “They are two people who are totally success-oriented, who are totally team players, who have a certain common empathy and who value each other extremely.”

So two transfer truffle pigs who are capable of working in a team get to work. It remains to be seen how well this will work.

Dreesen: “There’s plenty of work for two”

Dreesen has no doubts that the collaboration between Eberl and Freund will be fruitful. “Christoph is a person who not only knows Max from times past (…) but is unpretentious, serves the cause, is goal-oriented and is a real team player.” In addition, the CEO promises that no one will be bored. “There’s plenty of work for two people. I’m sure it works brilliantly as a team.”
