Freund Refuses To Rule Out Chelsea Move

Christoph Freund has refused to rule out a move to Chelsea as sporting director. The RB Salzburg administrator has been in talks with Chelsea over the Blues’ sporting director role. The 45-year-old assumed a highly-visible role at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night as Salzburg claimed a 1-1 Champions League draw.

Freund high-fived and embraced Salzburg players on the Stamford Bridge pitch after the match, also spending time with coaches and staff in soaking up a big result for the Austrians. The Salzburg director then later chose not to dampen the links between him and a move to Chelsea.

“You should never rule anything out in football and Chelsea are such a huge club,” said Freund. “Chelsea is such a huge club in transition. I can’t say exactly what will happen in the next few weeks and months. But I’m sports director at Salzburg and I really enjoy it.”
