RB Leipzig separates from coach Tedesco

RB Leipzig has drawn the consequences of the weak start to the season and separated from coach Domenico Tedesco. This was announced by the Bundesliga soccer team on Wednesday. A successor has not yet been determined, Marco Rose is considered the favourite. The 45-year-old is currently without a contract, has already trained in Salzburg and is very familiar with the RB cosmos.

“We have overall responsibility for RB Leipzig and want to achieve our goals. Therefore, in the overall assessment, we came to the conclusion that we need a new impetus," said managing director Oliver Mintzlaff in a club statement. The decision was very difficult for him.

Tedesco has to pack his bags just 109 days after winning the DFB Cup. The downward trend in the league with only five points from the first five games and the embarrassing 1: 4 in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk from Ukraine were fatal for the 36-year-old. For Tedesco, events are practically repeating themselves. Already at Schalke 04 - his last engagement in Germany before Leipzig - he was released in March 2018 after a defeat in the premier class.

Of course, Tedesco had earned a bonus by winning the title and the outstanding second half of the season. But that obviously didn't last too long in the fast-moving world of football. Even when Leipzig only had two draws after two games, club boss Mintzlaff spoke of a "crappy start" and only started the discussion about Tedesco.

The managing director is again looking for a new coach. Tedesco was only signed as the successor to Jesse Marsch in December. Tedesco had rejected an early extension of his contract, which runs until 2023, in the summer. Now the trail leads to Rose, who lives in a suburb of Leipzig, as a former Salzburg coach, is very familiar with the RB cosmos and is currently without a contract. In line with this, Max Eberl is to be hired as the new sports director. Rose and Eberl already worked together at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

However, the time for a new coach to come on board is extremely thankless. On Saturday (3.30 p.m., in the WELT sports ticker), Leipzig has to play second-placed Borussia Dortmund in the league – Rose’s former club. The second group game of the Champions League at Real Madrid is next Wednesday, followed by the Bundesliga away game at Borussia Mönchengladbach on September 17th. Only then does a break follow through the international round.
