Ex-Arsenal and Chelsea scout Yousuf Sajjad who helped unearth top young stars becomes technical director of Den Bosch | The Sun

FORMER Arsenal and Chelsea scout Yousuf Sajjad has reportedly become the technical director of Dutch side Den Bosch.

The 30-year-old left the Gunners back in September and has turned down job offers from League One and Championship clubs over the past three months.

But now he has taken a senior role with Den Bosch who currently play their football in the Eerste Divisie – Holland's second tier.

And in doing so he becomes the youngest person in the EU to hold the technical director position.

Sajjad is incredibly well-respected as a scout having previously discovered talent at both Arsenal and Chelsea.

While working for the Blues, he brought through the likes of Ian Maatsen, Billy Gilmour and Ethan Ampadu.

Den Bosch is part of a multi-club model, with other outfits in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany and Holland.

They are currently struggling in the Eerste Divisie after a poor start to the campaign.

Three successive defeats have seen the club drop to 15th place in the table.

However, there is no relegation from the second tier.
