A Potential Conflict of Interest

Former Arsenal transfer chief Sven Mislintat is reportedly under investigation by his current club, Ajax, after allegedly buying a player through an agency that has a stake in his private firm. The Dutch giants have launched an internal investigation into Mislintat's actions.

Background and Career

Mislintat, who joined Ajax as director of football in April, was previously the head of scouting at Borussia Dortmund and spent two years as head of recruitment at Arsenal before returning to the Bundesliga as sporting director at Stuttgart. He left Stuttgart in November 2022 and remained out of work until joining Ajax.

Allegations and Investigation

Less than six months into his job at Ajax, Mislintat is facing allegations of a potential conflict of interest. It is claimed that a recent player's transfer to the club was facilitated by a German agency that has stakes in Mislintat's private company, Matchmetrics. The NL Times broke the news of the investigation, citing information from NOS.

AKA Global's Role

The investigation revolves around a transaction made on June 26, where AKA Global, an agent agency, acquired shares in Mislintat's company, Matchmetrics. The report suggests that AKA Global successfully negotiated the transfer of left-back Borna Sosa to Ajax for an €8m fee.

Ajax's Response

Ajax has confirmed that they were aware of Mislintat's shares in Matchmetrics when he was appointed, and they have contractual agreements in place regarding this. However, the club was unaware of AKA Global's shares in Mislintat's company until recently. Ajax has now launched an investigation, as it goes against their corporate governance policy, which prohibits directors from making decisions where there is a conflict of interest.

Ajax's Troubles

This investigation is the latest trouble for Ajax, both on and off the pitch. The team has had their worst start to a season since 1965, and tensions have been rising between Mislintat and manager Maurice Steijn over this summer's transfer signings.

Sun Sport has approached Mislintat for comment.
