Borussia Mönchengladbach have announced Red Bull Salzburg coach Marco Rose will replace Dieter Hecking at the end of the season. Gladbach revealed last week Hecking will leave after two-and-a-half years in charge when his contract expires in the summer.
The Bundesliga club have now confirmed Rose, 42, will take charge of the first-team at the end of the season. “In the last six years, Marco Rose has done great work in Salzburg, and we’re delighted that he’ll be with us from the coming season,” Gladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl said, as reported by the official Bundesliga website.
Rose led Salzburg to the Austrian title in his first season in charge and they are on course to secure back-to-back titles as they hold a nine-point lead over LASK Linz after 22 games. The German, who played for Hannover 96 and Mainz during his playing career, spent four years working as a youth coach at various levels with Salzburg before taking charge of the first team in 2017.
