RB Leipzig sack Marsch sparking talk he’ll reunite with Ralf Rangnick at Man Utd

RB Leipzig have sacked manager Jesse Marsch, leading to suggestions he could reunite with Ralf Rangnick at Manchester United.

Marsch only took over the Bundesliga club in the summer but has lost his job after an underwhelming start to the season which sees them sat 11th in the table.

With the American now without a job and Rangnick searching for an assistant manager following Michael Carrick's departure, the duo could join forces once more at Old Trafford.

Marsch was the German coach's right hand man at Leipzig for the 2018/19 season, when they finished third with now Chelsea star Timo Werner firing in the goals.

Pundit and former Norway international Jan Aage Fjortoft said: "He has worked closely with Rangnick before! Could he come to Manchester United as an assistant?"

A fan predicted: "Jesse Marsch will be Rangnick’s assistant for the remainder of the season. Heard it here first."

"With Marsch being sacked I can’t help but think it makes sense he goes to United and with Rangnick as his dof/sporting director could build something there," another added.

Where will United finish under Rangnick this season? Let us know in the comments section.

Following their season together, Marsch was named RB Salzburg boss, while Rangnick moved on to become head of sport and development at Red Bull.

Marsch was the natural successor to Julian Nagelsmann earlier this year after he had left to take the Bayern Munich job.

But it did not work out for him as Leipzig's number one, with a 2-1 defeat to Union Berlin on Friday night proving to be the final straw.

His sacking ends a near seven-year association with Red Bull, as he had managed 151 games for their New York side from 2015-18.

A recent report claimed Rangnick wants another of his former associates and current New York Red Bulls assistant, Gehrard Struber, to join him at United.

But with Marsch now seemingly an option, Rangnick could have some thinking to do.
