OFFICIAL - RB Leipzig hire Tedesco as new first-team boss

Once having sacked Jesse Marsch, RB Leipzig announced having named 36-year old German-Italian trainer Domenico Tedesco, previously working for Spartak Moscow and Schalke 04, new first-team manager.

Here's the official note:

"The club agreed to appoint Domenico Tedesco. The 36-year-old has signed a contract until 30th June 2023 as he replaces Jesse Marsch. RB Leipzig and Jesse Marsch had agreed to go their separate ways last Sunday.

Domenico Tedesco will be officially presented as our new head coach during a digital press conference at 13:30 CET. Following that, he will lead his first training session in his new role. His first game in charge will be on Saturday (15:30 CET) at home to Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Andreas Hinkel and Max Urwantschky will follow Tedesco to Leipzig as his assistants. They will join the existing staff members Marco Kurth (assistant coach), goalkeeper coach Frederik Gößling and fitness coaches Ruwen Faller, Kai Kraft and Daniel Behlau.

Assistant coach Achim Beierlorzer is no longer part of the coaching team. After good and constructive discussions, it was agreed that he would depart the club. RB Leipzig would like to thank Achim Beierlorzer for his hard work over the last five months, as well as for his readiness to step in as interim coach. We wish him all the best for the future!"
