Bayern Munich’s front office could see some positions shift in the coming weeks.
Per kicker, Bayern Munich chief scout Marco Neppe is reportedly set to be named technical director and Pirmin Schwegler could slide into the role of head scout for the Bavarians. Schwegler has been credited for doing the majority of the leg work on Bayern Munich’s reported signing of Reading FC full-back Omar Richards and is said to have an important voice within the front office:
From July 2014 to 2017, Marco Neppe (34) was the assistant to the then technical director Michael Reschke and after his departure in Munich, was promoted to head of the scouting department. (Neppe) is now to become technical director.
Pirmin Schwegler is already in discussion as his successor in the position of chief scout. The 14-time Swiss national player, who ended his career in August 2020 after stints in Leverkusen, Frankfurt, Hoffenheim and Hannover, can look back on a proud 262 Bundesliga appearances (seven goals).
The moves would be considered a good step on the respective career paths of both Neppe and Schwegler if they come to fruition.
