On the Move
SønderjyskE in final days of Sporting Director hunt
by Jonathan Rest

SønderjyskE, the Danish Superliga club, are closing in on a new Sporting Director, eight months after Hans Jørgen Haysen left the club.

It is important for us to get a Danish sporting director in, and that is not really something I want to compromise on... It is someone who must know the Danish football system, the Danish league, the Danish agents and know the contractual conditions in relation to DBU regulations.
Jonas Lygaard
CEO, SønderjyskE

SønderjyskE, part of a group of clubs owned by the US Platek family that includes Italy's Spezia Calcio and Portugal's Casa Pia AC, has mulled over several football structures over the past few months but has now settled on recruiting a new Sporting Director.

 

Club CEO Jonas Lygaard, told Tipsbladet, the Danish sports magazine: "We are in the last third of the process, but there are still large parts that still need to be in place... we hope we have something in place within a few weeks."

 

Lygaard joined from Konami, the Japanese video game manufacturer, in the summer, as did Joe Manns, as Head of Recruitment and Player Development.

 

Since then the focus has returned to finding a successor to Haysen, with familiarity with Danish football considered essential.

 

Lygaard continued: "It is important for us to get a Danish sporting director in, and that is not really something I want to compromise on. He must also have knowledge of football, but the Danish part has been a really important thing for me.

"It is someone who must know the Danish football system, the Danish league, the Danish agents and know the contractual conditions in relation to DBU regulations."

 

SønderjyskE sit 11th in the 12-team Superliga this season.
