Kicker have revealed that Jesse Marsch has rejected an approach from Tottenham Hotspur in favour of taking over at RB Leipzig.

Julian Nagelsmann was reported to be Tottenham’s number one target to replace Jose Mourinho but the club will now have to look elsewhere after the German coach agreed to take over from Hansi Flick at Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Reports indicate that Spurs have now shifted their attention to the other names on their shortlist, which include Brendan Rodgers, Erik Ten Hag, Gareth Southgate and Ralf Rangnick.

Marsch, whose stock has risen considerably since he took over at RB Salzburg two years ago, was also said to be on the club’s radar.

However, Kicker now report that the American is likely to stay within the Red Bull family and replace Nagelsmann as Leipzig boss.

The report asserts that Marsch has rejected approaches from Spurs and Eintracht Frankfurt in favour of taking over at Leipzig.

Although the 47-year-old is said to have agreed to take the job, it is revealed that Leipzig and Salzburg are yet to reach an agreement.

  1. If you are a top manager or a manager on the up why would you commit suicide by having anything to do with Levy. He is an absolute disaster and only cares about making money at the managers expense. I believe Enic and Levy were attempting to sell the club and wanted a high profile top manager one of the best of all time to be the icing on the cake to push the club price higher. I even expect Jose knew this and was promised large financial boost for players once the takeover had happened. Levy unknown to me was a 29% stake holder and was keeping hold of his shares so was expecting to stay in his position and would then be able to deliver the much needed funds to Jose. However the kicker was the new owners didnt want Levy in charge and as Levy will never walk away rejected the sale from going through. He ended up with a manager that he didnt want or need, who was on huge wages the club couldnt afford due to the high debts, a club with no investment coming in to provide Jose with the promised funds and pay his wages he panicked and thought I need to sack him now as if he won the cup and hit the champions league places which could become top 5 or more if Man Utd wins the europa league which is possible with Jose he would never be able to sack him and Levy would be bad predicament
