Jesse Marsch has been sacked as RB Leipzig boss after just four mouths in charge of the Red Bulls.
The former RB Salzburg manager was appointed in April but started his managerial job in the summer, succeeding Julian Nagelsmann who moved to Bundesliga rival Bayern Munich.
Marsch was sacked due the Red Bulls poor performances in the Bundesliga which places them on 11th on the table, having won just five games in 14 this season.
While Marsch is sacked, assistant coach Achim Beierlorzor will be in charge of the team for their Champions League final group game against Manchester City on Tuesday.
After the announcement of Marsch sacking, the club’s chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff said: “It was not easy for us to part company with Jesse, because I hold him in high regard as a person and as a coach.”
“It is a shame that things did not work out as we had hoped with this setup, and that this step has now become necessary.”
The American tactician also lend his voice after he was sacked that, “Up until the very end, I remained hopeful that after a troubled start to the season and inconsistent performances, we would find more cohesion and stability as a group and turn our fortunes around.”
“Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to do that after a discussion with Mintlaff, we came to the joint decision to make a change in the coaching position.”
While Marsch assistant take charge of the team, RB Leipzig will bid their time to scout for the perfect manager to take the job on a permanent basis.
