Chelsea have appointed Christopher Vivell as the club’s new technical director.

German Vivell, 36, was previously head of scouting and recruitment at RB Salzburg in Austria and oversaw the signing of Erling Haaland in 2019.

Most recently, he worked in his home country of Germany for the Bundesliga club RB Leipzig in recruiting for all age groups.

Vivell succeeds Petr Cech, the former Blues goalkeeper who retired in the summer after three years in the role.

Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly said Vivell would support manager Graham Potter.

“We are delighted that Christopher is taking on this important leadership role at the club,” said Boehly.

“His work in Germany and Austria speaks for itself. We’re confident he’ll continue his impressive journey here at Chelsea.

“He will provide important support to Graham and the ownership group and will play an important role in advancing our overall vision for the club.”

Vivell’s ties to RB Leipzig could work in Chelsea’s favor when it comes to their transfer ambitions as the club have been linked with Leipzig midfielder Christopher Nkunku and defender Josko Gvardiol.

On his move to Stamford Bridge, Vivell said: “Chelsea are building the most exciting project in global football and I am very proud to join the club.

“There is so much potential for the club to continue to thrive, develop and grow.

“Under new ownership, Graham Potter, and the broader sports team, there is a clear and sustainable philosophy, underpinned by performance analysis, data and innovation, and I look forward to being a part of it.”

Chelsea continue their post-World Cup season in the Premier League with a home game against Bournemouth on December 27.
