Berlin (AFP) – Red Bull Salzburg coach Marco Rose has announced that he will leave the club at the end of the season to take over German Bundesliga side Borussia Moenchengladbach.
The German coach confirmed that he would sign a three-year contract at Gladbach, who announced the imminent departure of current coach Dieter Hecking last week.
Rose, 42, had been linked with several Bundesliga clubs in recent months, with Gladbach and Wolfsburg foremost among them.
“I didn’t just get one request, I got quite a few,” he admitted at a press conference on Wednesday.
“I have decided to take on a new challenge in the Bundesliga, which I am really looking forward to.
“Borussia is a great club with big ambitions and a great fan culture. Those are all things which attracted me.”
Rose has been in charge of the first team at Salzburg since 2017, winning the Austrian league and cup double and reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League in his first season.
Previously, he was in charge of the club’s Under-18 team.
“Marco Rose has done incredible work at Salzburg in the last six years, and we are happy that he will join us next season,” said Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl.
At a press conference last week, Eberl announced that Gladbach would be parting ways with Hecking as coach after a poor run of form saw the club drop out of the Bundesliga top four.
