Liverpool next? Mislintat leaves Stuttgart amid Anfield rumours

Former VfB Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat is in the running for the job at Liverpool.

With Julian Ward set to leave his role at the end of the season, the Reds are in the market for a replacement.

And Mislintat is now being considered, according to Sky Deutschland journalist Florian Plettenberg.

The 48-year-old has worked under Jurgen Klopp previously as chief scout when he was Borussia Dortmund manager.

And he had an impressive track record in Germany, bringing both Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Westfalenstadion.

During his time at Dortmund, they won two Bundesliga titles, two German Cups and also reached the Champions League final.

Formerly chief scout at Arsenal, Mislintat left his Stuttgart post on Tuesday.
