Kai Horstmann says he is looking forward to an exciting new chapter in his career after it was today confirmed he is to take on a new role with the Exeter Chiefs.
The 36-year-old will call time on his distinguished playing career when his existing deal expires at the end of the season and he will swap life in the Chiefs changing room for that within the club’s corporate sales team.
A key figure in the recent rise of the Chiefs, the experienced back-row forward is to take on the role vacated by another former player, Chris Bentley, who signs off from his current role following this afternoon’s Aviva Premiership clash with Leicester Tigers.
“It’s exciting times for me and a great opportunity to stay involved with the club,” explained Horstmann.
“It’s something I’m sure will be a little foreign to me to start with, but it’s something in the long term to really enjoy.”
