Marco Rose set to sign new RB Leipzig contract prematurely

Sky Germany report that Marco Rose will prematurely extend his contract with RB Leipzig, which currently expires in 2024.

The 46-year-old replaced Domenico Tedesco last season after the latter picked up just five points from the opening five games. Rose then led the Saxons to third in the Bundesliga, Round of 16 in the Champions League, and also guided the club to successive DFB Pokal titles. In 29 games, Rose averaged 2.10 points per game.

Sky’s Philipp Hinze reports that Max Eberl and Rose both agree and that a new contract will be signed.

It’s likely that RB Leipzig will wait until they’ve finished conducting their transfer business before an official confirmation. Despite losing Konrad Laimer, Dominik Szoboszlai and Christopher Nkunku this season, the club have recruited well in Fabio Carvalho and Xavi Simons, both of whom arrive on loan, while Loïs Openda joined the club from Lens for a club record fee of a reported €45m. They’ve also signed Hoffenheim’s Christoph Baumgartner and PSG’s El Chadaille Bitshiabu.
