RB Leipzig have confirmed that the manager of sister club RB Salzburg Jesse Marsch will take over the head coach role of the club next season after Julian Nagelsmann leaves for Bayern Munich.
The club uploaded a video on Twitter which lists the clubs targets including players and on the other side was “JN” for Julian Nagelsmann as coach, but added a stroke to it to make “JM”, Jesse Marsch initials.
Marsch was Ralf Rangnick’s assistant at RB Leipzig in the 2018/19 season before leaving for Salzburg and will now return to the club to take over the managerial role. He signed a two years contract until 2023.
“In Jesse Marsch, we have been able to recruit our main head coach and quickly fill the most important position in the sporting side of the club with a top coach,” says Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff.
“Jesse has been part of the Red Bull football group for over six years now… It’s of course a great advantage that he already worked for a year at RB Leipzig. Jesse knows the club, the city of Leipzig and, above all, the club and playing philosophy…
“We’re looking forward to working with Jesse Marsch and to continuing our successful path with him.”
Leipzig also “collected” Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai from their sister club in January.
