With RB Salzburg, Jesse Marsch dominates the Austrian Bundesliga at will. The US boy does an excellent job in our neighboring country and naturally also brings himself into conversation for higher tasks. For example at RB Leipzig.
Marsch was already active for the Saxons in the 2018/19 season, at that time as an assistant coach under Ralf Rangnick. The American, who had already worked for Red Bull at the New York club in his home country for three and a half years before moving to Leipzig, then rattled off the third club from the Red Bull cosmos and went on to succeed Marco Rose to Salzburg, where he has been head coach for two years.
There he not only causes a sensation in the domestic league, but also on an international level. Word of his outstanding work has long since got around – whenever a coaching position becomes vacant in the Bundesliga, the 47-year-old is also treated as a potential candidate.
It is now the case that the coaching chair at RB Leipzig could become vacant for the coming season. Julian Nagelsmann still has a contract that is valid until 2023, but there is great interest in him. At Bayern he is named as the successor to Hansi Flick, and Tottenham is said to have him on the list after José Mourinho’s departure. A departure of the 33-year-old is therefore not so unlikely – his legacy in the table runner-up could be Jesse Marsch.
Of Sky When asked about this topic, Marsch replied: “Of course I understand this association [RB Leipzig] very good. If you ask me what I think would fit best, then of course RB Leipzig is a top idea. But Julian Nagelsmann is doing a great job and there is currently no reason for Leipzig to look for a new coach. But if I can have the opportunity as a trainer in Leipzig, then that’s a great idea for me. “You couldn’t express your interest in the job more clearly!
Salzburg’s sports director Christoph Freund had on the show Sport and talk in Hangar-7 last stated that so far “I haven’t asked a club about Jesse”, but at the same time added: “On the other hand, I can’t say with one hundred percent that Jesse will be our coach next year. It would be bad if we thought Jesse Marsch is next year our coach will fix it. “
According to Salzburg news Marsch can leave Salzburg for two million euros. In the worst-case scenario, the two clubs will surely find a solution over the short official channels.
