RB Leipzig have appointed former Borussia Dortmund manager Marco Rose as Domenico Tedesco’s replacement.
Rose signed a two-year contract with Leipzig which will keep him at the club until 2024.
Rose is a native of Leipzig and has considerable experience in the Bundesliga.
He was sacked by Dortmund in May after just one season at the helm, despite guiding the club to a runners-up finish, and previously impressed during a stint with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Rose also managed Leipzig’s sister club RB Salzburg between 2017 and 2019, winning successive Austrian Bundesliga titles – the latter part of a domestic double alongside the Austrian Cup.
The 45-year-old will hold his first training session with the Leipzig squad on Thursday to prepare them for the Bundesliga fixture against his former employers Dortmund on Saturday.
