Sven Mislintat slams ex-BVB coach Thomas Tuchel: I'm joining Arsenal because of you

Departing Borussia Dortmund chief scout Sven Mislintat left for Arsenal with a barb for Thomas Tuchel.

Mislintat's move to Arsenal was confirmed yesterday - and the German enjoyed a dig at former BVB coach Tuchel, who banned him from the training ground last season.

He explained: "I would probably never have thought of engaging with other clubs. The ban initiated by the former coach to enter the training ground and instruct me to stay away from the inner circle of players, the staff, and many friends with whom I have worked closely for years has greatly influenced my thinking.

"I've had offers in the years before, but never really thought about changing.

"I was born and raised here, I've been working for the club since 2006 and I'm a Borussian through and through."
