Former New York Red Bulls head coach and current RB Leipzig bench coachJesse Marsch may be on the move again, this time to the top job with Red Bull Salzburg in Austria. The 45-year old American coach continues to climb the ranks and a move to the Austrian dominant team could be in the cards.
The report comes from DW Sports from Germany where they linked the two-time Supporters Shield winner to Salzburg. Current manager Marco Rose has been linked to several high profile jobs, including the potentially vacant position at Manchester United. His success in recent years, taking Salzburg deep in the Europa League, has caught the eye of bigger teams looking for a proven coach with young talent.
Currently at Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick is set to give up his position and return to his Sporting Director role as Julian Nagelsmann has already agreed to take over the Bundesliga club RB Leipzig. Marsch joined Rangnick’s staff after impressing in the United States but continues his meteoric rise up the organization with this link to Salzburg.
There are currently no American managers in any of the four major European Leagues and a move to the Austrian Bundesliga could put Marsch in line for one of those jobs should he be successful at Salzburg. The job itself isn’t a difficult one has the team has dominated Austrian football since Red Bull took over the team in 2005. They have captured five consecutive league titles and five consecutive Austrian Cups as well. Their move up the ranks in UEFA with success on the continent has also been noticed.
