Local Leipzig newspaper links Rose with AC Milan head-coaching position

The local Leipziger Volkszeitung reports that AC Milan are interested in potentially recruiting RB Leipzig trainer Marco Rose to the Serie A. 

Leipzig's only local daily newspaper has brought up more questions about the future of head-coach Marco Rose with his home-town club. In a report published on Saturday, the Leipziger Volkszeitung claims that AC Milan - under the stewardship of American private equity firm "RedBird Capital Partners" have Rose on the shortlist to replace outgoing trainer Stefano Pioli. 

A Leipzig native with deep roots in the RB system, it doesn't necessarily appear as if Rose has any desire to leave the German Red Bulls. The 47-year-old's previous attempts to take a step up in his career - leaving Borussia Mönchengladbach for a step up to Borussia Dortmund - ended with the German runners-up dismissing him following one disappointing season. 

The Saxon paper nevertheless notes that Rose's contract with RB is only valid through the end of next season. It looks to be the case that Leipzig may have to step up efforts to sign Rose to a contract extension in order to keep him committed to the club. Leipzig's summer squad planning might also play a role in Rose's calculus.
