Jesse Marsch on the "strange job interview" with Ralf Rangnick

For RB Leipzig’s new coach, Jesse Marsch, there was a dispute before entering the Red Bull football universe – with Ralf Rangnick. “My interview was really strange,” said Marsch der Süddeutsche Zeitung looking back on his start with the New York Red Bulls in 2015.

“Ralf didn’t say anything for a long time, only Gerard spoke (Houiller, the editor). I thought Ralf didn’t speak English,” said Marsch: “But it turned out that his English was excellent: when he saw me ticked, he suddenly started challenging me. “

What followed was a “heated argument about tactical details”: “It was a fight. Over technical issues, but really heated. When I went out, I called my wife and said: ‘I can forget the job. No way, that I get that. ‘ Fifteen minutes later I got a call from the New York President and he said, They love you. I just thought, pardon? “

The American was on the sidelines at New York until 2018, after which Rangnick brought him to RB Leipzig for one season as an assistant coach. Marsch then trained RB Salzburg, this summer he returned to the Saxons as head coach.
