A related message from “Bild” was first reported about this, which is in line with kicker information. Accordingly, Gomez is involved in strategic planning and processes and structures. It’s about supporting the three Red Bull Clubs in Brazil, RB Leipzig, New York Red Bulls and Bragantino.
Gomez will not be hired by Leipzig
“He’s a full-fledged team player, bursting with energy and enthusiasm and looking forward to the tasks and challenges that lie ahead,” said Oliver Mindsloff, Leipzig’s built-in managing director. However, Gomez will not be hired by RB Leipzig, which is why he did not qualify for the vacant sports director position. Mindsloff rejected it in September and pointed out that Gomez was a candidate for another position on the Red Bull Soccer Network.
This season, Gomez has been the Champions League expert for Amazon Prime Video. The striker ended his active career in the summer of 2020 after being promoted to VfB Stuttgart. Red Bull Soccer may be interested in Gomez’s network, in addition to his involvement with the Swabians, he also played for Bayern Munich, Florence, Besiktas and VFL Wolfsburg. In addition, he ran 78 times for Germany.
