RB Leipzig Transfer News: Marco Rose joins Leipzig
German club RB Leipzig have named Marco Rose as their next manager. The German manager has signed a two-year deal with the club.
In an official statement, Leipzig stated, “Marco Rose has been appointed as the new head coach of RB Leipzig and has signed a two-year contract valid until June 2024. The 45-year-old replaces Domenico Tedesco, who departed the club on Wednesday, 7th September.”
Tedesco’s Term in Leipzig
After replacing American coach Jesse Marsch in Leipzig, Tedesko had a very successful first season.
Under the Italian manager, Leipzig won their first major title when they defeated SC Freiburg in penalties and won the DFB Pokal.
Tedesco’s Leipzig performed decently in the continental stage as they reached the Europa League semi-finals before getting knocked by Scottish club Rangers.
This time around, Leipzig had a very poor start to the season. The German club won only one out of their first five matches in the league. They are currently placed in the eleventh place in the table.
The pressure was already building on Tedesko’s team to deliver. However, things only turned worse in the Champions League as the German club suffered a 1-4 loss against Shakhtar Donetsk in their opening match.
Ultimately this poor start coupled with the Champions League humiliation led to the sacking of Tedesco.
