After a break from football, Max Eberl has now found employment after he was signed by RB Leipzig. The 48-year-old has been an integral part of fellow Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach’s board. Just this year, in the middle of Gladbach’s dance with relegation, he requested the club to allow him to step down from his role as sporting director on grounds of health reasons. After a six-month break, he’s back in the game, this time with Die Roten Bullen.
