Jesse Marsch on the radar of RB Leipzig and Tottenham for managerial job

Bayern Munich bosses announced on Tuesday that Julian Nagelsmann will be their new manager and he agreed to a five-year deal starting 1 July. The decision was made after current manager Hansi Flick informed the club that he didn’t want to continue beyond this season, so his contract will be terminated after the conclusion of this campaign.

Jesse Marsch in several teams radar

Now the Leipzig bosses are looking for a new manager to replace Nagelsmann next season and Jesse Marsch is set to fill the vacancy. The American is at the top of the list to arrive at Red Bull Arena and the other option for the bosses is current AFC Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, but he doesn’t speak fluent German.

Leipzig will have to make a decision quickly, because according to UK tabloid the Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the American coach that started his career in Major League Soccer. Marsch has impressed several clubs in Europe for his work in Austria with Red Bull Salzburg.

The American manager has a 67% winning rate with Salzburg and has developed top players like Erling Haaland. He has also had great performances in the UEFA Champions League against the most powerful teams in Europe. And a couple of days ago, Marsch confirmed that he could return to Leipzig due to the relationship between both clubs.
