Scouted Football Podcast: 54

VfB Stuttgart, Scouting and Sven Mislintat

Stuttgart’s promotion from 2. Bundesliga last season was secured in the final knockings of the season, but there is little danger of them returning to the second tier after a blisteringly entertaining Hinrunde in this season’s Bundesliga.

Joe is joined by Berlin-based journalist, OneFootball and Arseblog’s finest, Lewis Ambrose. They discuss Stuttgart’s background, it’s fruitful record with young players and of course the Sporting Director who has headed up the club’s charge back to prominence: Sven Mislintat, formerly of Borussia Dortmund and briefly Arsenal.

Featuring segments on: coach Pellegrino Matarazzo, Orel Mangala, Stuttgart’s Attack, Tanguy Coulibaly, losing Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich, and of course, the jewel in the crown, Silas Wamangituka.
