According to a recent Sport Bild report, RB Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch is seen as a possible replacement for Lucien Favre at Borussia Dortmund if the Bundesliga side part ways with the 62-year-old at the end of the season.

Marsch, however, insists he's focused on his job at Salzburg and claims he has had no contact with Dortmund at this point in time.

"First of all, I have to say that I don't know Lucien Favre but I have met him some years ago. He is a great coach. Dortmund are doing well, they are second in Bundesliga and it's a great club," Marsch said, according to Goal.com, and added:

"I have a contract here and my focus is 100 per cent here in Salzburg. It's not necessary to speak about it, and I have to say that I haven't been in contact with Dortmund.

"In the end, I can just say that I am fully focused here in Salzburg and I am really happy here. That's it."

Marsch's contract with RB Salzburg runs until 2022.
