RB Leipzig have appointed former Borussia Dortmund manager Marco Rose as Domenico Tedesco's replacement.
  • Leipzig appoint Rose as manager
  • Worked at BVB last season
  • Will face former employers next

WHAT HAPPENED? Rose has signed a two-year contract with Leipzig which will keep him at the club until 2024. The Bundesliga outfit parted ways with Tedesco following their 4-1 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League opener.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: 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.

AND WHAT'S MORE: 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.

WHAT NEXT FOR ROSE? 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.
