RB Leipzig head coach Marco Rose has put pen to paper on a contract extension that binds him to the club until 2025.
The news comes as a breath of fresh air for Leipzig fans who have witnessed the transformational impact Rose had on the team last season.
Stepping into the role just last September, the 46-year-old had the task of following in the footsteps of Domenic Tedesco.
He led the squad to a stunning resurgence, culminating in a commendable third-place finish in the Bundesliga and a victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB-Pokal final, securing Leipzig’s second successive cup triumph.
After signing the new deal, Rose’s sights are set on the ultimate prize – challenging the perennial powerhouses Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for the Bundesliga title.
Many Bundesliga followers feel they are capable of taking on the challenge.
However, the journey will be no walk in the park. Leipzig face the prospect of moving forward without some of their brightest stars from the previous season.
With Josko Gvardiol’s impending move to Manchester City nearing completion, Leipzig have been ravaged this summer.
However, Marco Rose remains undeterred by the departures, asserting his unwavering belief in the incoming talents.
They have signed Lois Openda, Xavi Simons and Fabio Carvalho this summer, and Benjamin Sesko joined them too.
If the new recruits can hit the ground running, Leipzig’s aspirations of lifting the coveted Bundesliga trophy will be alive and well.
After last season’s turbulent start extinguished their title dreams prematurely, a tale of redemption awaits.
“For me, it is a privilege and commitment at the same time to continue working together, acknowledging the responsibility of further developing the club’s legacy.”
