The 50-year-old – who came through the Bayern youth ranks and made one senior appearance – will start his new role on March 1.

Bayern Munich have confirmed the appointment of former RB Leipzig sporting director Max Eberl to the club’s board.

The 50-year-old – who came through the Bayern youth ranks and made one senior appearance – will start his new role with the Bundesliga champions on March 1 and has signed a contract until June 2027.

Former Germany Under-21 defender Eberl went on to have spells at Bochum and Greuther Furth before signing with Borussia Monchengladbach, where he later moved into coaching and then became director of sport.

Eberl moved to a similar position at RB Leipzig in December 2022, but was relieved of his duties at the club just nine months later.

“I spent my entire childhood and youth at FC Bayern and in Munich, so it’s something special for me to return in a new role to the club where it all began,” Eberl said on the Bayern Munich website.

“The job as board member for sport is a great challenge, which I will approach with a lot of respect and humility, but with even more anticipation.

“Together with everyone here, I want to do everything I can to ensure that FC Bayern continues to be successful in the future and brings joy to its fans.”

Bayern announced the club’s executive board would consist of three positions from July 1 – a chief executive, a chief financial and sales officer as well as a board member for sport, which will be Eberl’s role.
