New Arsenal scouting chief Mislintat: Tuchel bust-up hurt both of us

New Arsenal scouting chief Sven Mislintat has spoken of his clash with former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel.

Mislintat, upon announcing his departure from BVB last week, blamed his rift with Tuchel for his decision after he had been banned from the training ground last season.

The talent spotter revisited the row on Kicker, saying: "There were many things in the time that I would have liked to have done without. Thomas Tuchel probably too. In the end, it has hurt us all.

"The topic has become too big again. I was just saying that this time has inspired me to do something else again. There was not a bad reason to leave BVB.

"I'm not angry at anyone. On the contrary, I think it's brave what Hans-Joachim Watzke said at the membership and shareholder meeting."
