Brøndby fires sports director
Per Rud, the sporting director at Danish Superliga club Brøndby, was today fired by the club’s board.
According to the board, the dismissal was a necessary step if the club is to achieve its sporting targets of winning the championship by 2017.
Rud, who will be replaced by former OB coach Troels Bech, has not yet wished to comment on the matter. He had been in the position since July 2013.
The level needs to be lifted
“As a board, we can conclude that if we are to honour our sporting goals, we require a sporting director with considerable experience in all aspects of the football profession,” Jan Bech Andersen, the chairman and major shareholder of Brøndby, told Ekstra Bladet.
“We need a director who can ensure that Brøndby has a strong cohesion across the sporting sector, giving us the best possible framework to realise our sporting goals by 2017.”
Commenting on Rud’s depature, Andersen continued: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Per Rud for his work at the club, where he has worked tirelessly and faithfully for the club and was well liked by all. We wish Per every success in his future work.”
Brøndby’s coach is Thomas Frank.
