Jesse Marsch has been appointed new RB Leipzig coach, the Bundesliga club have confirmed on Twitter.

The 47-year-old RB Salzburg coach will move to Germany at the end of the season on a two-year deal as a successor for Julian Nagelsmann, who will be joining Bayern München.

Marsch spent a season working as an assistant for Ralf Rangnick at RB Leipzig before taking charge of their Austrian sister club in 2019.

"With Jesse Marsch, we were able to sign our desired candidate as the new head coach and quickly fill the most important position in the sporting area at RB Leipzig with a top coach," said RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff and added:

"Jesse has done an excellent job in all his previous positions and has developed step by step. It is of course a great advantage that he has already worked for RB Leipzig for one year. Jesse knows the club, the city of Leipzig and, above all, our club and philosophy.

"In addition to his qualities as a coach, Jesse is characterized above all by his positive, ambitious manner, through which he can extremely inspire people in and around the club and take them along with him.

"We are looking forward to working with Jesse Marsch to continue on our chosen path and to keep developing the club."
