Salzburg coach Marco Rose will be the successor to next season Dieter Hecking as new coach at Borussia Mönchengladbach. This decision was announced by the Bundesliga club and Roses current employer RB Salzburg together.
The change had been announced. Last Tuesday, Borussia announced that the contract with Hecking, which was only extended from November to 2020, will end prematurely on June 30 of this year.
"Marco Rose has done an excellent job in Salzburg over the past six years and we are happy that he will be with us from the coming season," said Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl. Rose described the move to the Bundesliga as "a difficult decision for me, but a decision that I take with full conviction".
Rose played in the Bundesliga under coach Jürgen Klopp for FSV Mainz 05, where he also started as an assistant coach. In Salzburg He took over various junior teams and won the 2017 UEFA Youth League. With the Salzburg professional team, he won the national championship in 2018 and failed in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
In Salzburg, the 42-year-old Rose was under contract until 2020, which is why Mönchengladbach probably have to pay a transfer fee for the coach. The Borussia is his first coaching station in the German Bundesliga. For Eberl Rose was the preferred candidate for the announced realignment.
Eberl had emphasized in the course of the announced separation from Hecking that the five-time German champions had to restructure. Rose, with his way of playing football, fulfills these demands. Other German clubs had shown interest in the native Leipzig.
