RB Leipzig have appointed RB Salzburg head coach Jesse Marsch as Julian Nagelsmann's successor.

Nagelsmann's move to Bayern Munich at the end of the current campaign was announced on Tuesday.

Marsch, 47, who worked as an assistant coach at Leipzig before joining its sister club in Austria, will start his new role on 1 July and has agreed a two-year contract.

Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff told the Bundesliga club's website: "With Jesse Marsch we were able to sign our dream candidate as the new head coach and quickly fill the most important position in the sporting field at RB Leipzig with a top coach.

"Jesse has done an excellent job in all of his previous positions and has developed step by step.

"It is natural, a great advantage that he has already worked for RB Leipzig for a year. Jesse knows the club, the city of Leipzig and above all our club and game philosophy.

"We look forward to working with Jesse Marsch so that we can continue on our chosen path with him and continue to develop the club."
