Jesse Marsch has been hired as manager of RB Leipzig effective next season.

Marsch will replace Julian Nagelsmann, who left Leipzig for Bayern Munich. 

Marsch was an assistant coach at Leipzig in 2018-19 and will join from sister club Red Bull Salzburg, where he won the Austrian league and Cup double last season.

“Jesse has done outstanding work everywhere he has worked so far,” said Leipzig’s head of football, Oliver Mintzlaff. “He has kept developing and it is obviously an advantage that he has worked at RB Leipzig for a year in the past. Jesse knows the club, the city, but most of all the philosophy of the team and the playing style.”
