Chelsea preparing to confirm Christopher Vivell as new technical director


Chelsea are seemingly very close to announcing Christopher Vivell as their new technical director.

The ex-RB Leipzig man has all but agreed a deal with the Stamford Bridge club.

The German is only waiting for official confirmation of the deal, having departed Leipzig back in October.

Per, Vivell impressed co-owner Todd Boehly during talks about rebuilding the club.

Key senior figures Bruce Buck, Petr Cech and Marina Granovskaia left Chelsea over the summer, leaving a vacuum in leadership.

While Boehly took on many roles in the summer window, adding Vivell to the setup will ease the burden.

German reporter Florian Plettenberg tweeted: "If everything goes right the deal could be announced this week! Contracts signed & visa done as reported. He should start as Chelsea's new Technical Director in December. New leadership at #CFC in progress, new transfer strategy the next windows."
