Arsenal New Scouting Chief: 'I'm Taking Arsenal Job To Stay 10-12 Years

New Arsenal scouting chief Sven Mislintat is ready to put down roots in London.
Mislintat is leaving Borussia Dortmund to take up the post at London Colney.

Mislintat had been targeted by several European giants, including Bayern Munich. He spent 10 years at Dortmund but fell out with new boss Thomas Tuchel.

But while Mislintat won’t rule out an eventual return to the Bundesliga giants he appears to be committed to a long stay at Arsenal.
“I was born in Dortmund, I'm a Dortmund kid, I studied here," he told Kicker.

“Of course I won't rule it out but I'm not leaving with the intention to return.

“I'm following my path to develop further and I want to keep learning.

“At Arsenal I want to do the very best job I can do. I'm excited for the challenge and can easily imagine myself at Arsenal, in London, for 10, 12 years as long as my family and I feel at home there."
Jens Lehmann was added to Arsene Wenger’s coaching setup whilst club captain Per Mertesacker will take over the running of the academy when he retires at the end of the season.

Asked why the German school of thinking was becoming increasingly popular at the Emirates Mislintat said:
“I don’t know but I have nothing against it.

“The setup will definitely make communicating easier for me to begin with.”
Lehmann and Mertesacker are not the only colleagues Mislintat is looking forward to working with.
“At the end of May, Wenger won the cup for the seventh time in 21 years. On top of his three league title wins.

“I find it really difficult to deny his success. I’m excited to work with him! I can only learn from someone who has proven his quality over decades.”
