“In the past few weeks we have had a lot of discussions with each other about Marco’s future. Unfortunately, he has now decided that he will make use of the clause and want to move to Borussia Dortmund next summer”. BVB has to transfer five million euros to Gladbach for Rose.
The re sports director Max Eberl has to find a suitable successor for the most successful coach in the club’s history according to the points average.

The plan worked perfectly, the bigger the gap that Rose is now leaving.
Finding a new coach should be anything but easy, after all, the candidate has to be available. He also has to fit the philosophy of the Champions League round of 16. And he also has to convince the players that the path started can be continued without Rose. Otherwise, in the summer, some players could imitate their ex-coach and leave Gladbach.
The aim is to be a young, success-hungry coach who is not completely finished himself and can develop the team further. He should be communicative strong and stand for a fresh, inspiring offensive style of play. At best, he should also have experience in international business.
Who could inherit Rose at Gladbach? And which candidate suits Borussia? SPORT1 does the check.
Jesse Marsch (Red Bull Salzburg)
The American comes from the Red Bull coaching forge and was assistant coach at RB Leipzig in the 2018/19 season. Before that, he was a coach for the New York Red Bulls for three and a half years.
He succeeded Rose at RB Salzburg in 2019. Embodied like the upcoming BVB coach, the RB school, plays offensive, attractive football, as Rose does in Gladbach. And Marsch is definitely interested in a Bundesliga commitment.
“I think the Bundesliga is a great league, I like the level, the stadiums, the culture. My year as assistant coach in Leipzig was great,” he recently explained to the Sports buzzer. It is always a compliment when he reads his name in connection with a coaching position in Germany. “That’s why I see the Bundesliga as an outstanding opportunity for me,” said Marsch.
Gerardo Seoane (Young Boys Bern)
The 42-year-old succeeded Adi Hütter at Young Boys Bern in 2018. Seoane won two championship titles in a row with the Young Boys and is currently the championship leader in Switzerland by a huge margin. In December, extended the contract with Bern ahead of schedule until 2023.
In the past, Seoane had several inquiries from the Bundesliga, including Hertha BSC before he signed Bruno Labbadia. Seoane canceled because he wanted to concentrate on developments in Bern.
What speaks for him: He is young, hungry for success, plays offensive football and can also present himself to the outside world. Seoane, who has Spanish citizenship as well as Swiss, speaks five languages fluently (German, French, Italian, English, Spanish). And: He has experience in international business and will face Bayer Leverkusen with YB in the Europa League on Thursday.
In Gladbach, the Swiss would also meet some compatriots. With Yann Sommer, Nico Elvedi, Denis Zakaria, Michael Lang and Breel Embolo, five Swiss are in the foal roster.
The sports director has been following Seoane’s development for a long time.
The Germany headquarters of Seoane’s consulting company (ISCM) is in Mönchengladbach, so the distances to Eberl and the foals are short.
Florian Kohfeldt (Werder Bremen)
The 44-year-old is also traded as a candidate in Gladbach. In terms of type, Kohfeldt could fit, but he lacks experience from international business.
Kohfeldt waived an exit clause when he extended his contract in 2019, so Gladbach would have to pay a transfer fee
“He enjoys his work here. He does a very good job and he has a long-term contract. We assume that we will continue to work together for a long time,” said Werder boss Klaus Filbry in the image. Sports director Frank Baumann also assumes that Kohfeldt will remain.
The problem with Kohfeldt: He still has to prove that his philosophy conforms to that of Gladbach. At Werder he was deeply involved in the relegation battle last season, the Bremen team only saved themselves in relegation.
Also due to the situation and the player material, Kohfeldt lets Bremen act rather cautious and withdrawn. Bremen lets the opponent do it and is mostly limited to counterattacking. That doesn’t match the dominant football that the Gladbachers are used to from Rose.
Adi Hütter (Eintracht Frankfurt)
The Austrian deliberately extended his contract with Hessen last summer until 2023 and continues to feel comfortable. “I am incredibly happy to be here in this wonderful city of Frankfurt with Eintracht and we would like to continue driving this positive development,” he said in the summer.
However: after SPORT1-Information, an exit clause is included in Hutter’s contract. According to reports, this should be between three and five million euros.
In terms of style, Hütter would suit Gladbach well, he also has a past at RB Salzburg. Hütter was on the sidelines in Salzburg in the 2014/15 season before moving to Bern. With Frankfurt he lets refreshing, fast-paced offensive football play, just as Gladbach likes.
The next step in his career for the Austrian would be the jump to a top European club, possibly even to England. Since Eintracht was able to shorten the gap to Gladbach in recent years, there is no incentive to take over from Rose.
Erik ten Hag (Ajax Amsterdam)
The 51-year-old sensationally reached the semi-finals of the Champions League with Ajax Amsterdam 2019.
Ten Hag knows the Bundesliga from his time at Bayern, where he coached the second team from 2013 to 2015.
His advantage: At Ajax he has proven several times that he can develop young talents and raise them to a top level. However, his style of play differs from that of Roses. Ten Hag relies on dominant possession play with less speed. Contrary to what was reported, however, Eberl has not yet been contacted.
Domenico Tedesco (Spartak Moskau)
The 35-year-old is returning to Germany this summer after one and a half years at Spartak Moscow.
From the Stuttgart youth, Tedesco ended up first in the Hoffenheim youth team and finally at Schalke 04. He had completed his soccer teacher together with Julian Nagelsmann – with the best grades.
In its debut season 2017/18, Königsblau sensationally led to the runner-up, but was dismissed in the following season after a sporty decline.
Tedesco’s basic idea is a dominant, possession-oriented style of play. His team should let the opponent run a lot. That is only partially attractive. In addition, Tedesco relies on a strong defense. His sometimes destructive style of play brought the German with Italian roots to Schalke harsh criticism.
Roger Schmidt (PSV Eindhoven)
The next coach with a past at RB Salzburg. Roger Schmidt came to Salzburg via SC Paderborn in 2012, two years later Bayer Leverkusen snapped.
The 53-year-old led the Werkself into the premier class twice in a row before he was dismissed from tenth place in March 2017. After a two-year interlude in China, Schmidt has been on the sideline at PSV Eindhoven since the start of the season and is currently second in the Dutch Eredivisie.
Schmidt has a wealth of national and international experience. He relies on intense pressing and early conquering the ball. Ball possession is not important to him. When conquering the ball, the conclusion should be sought as quickly as possible. Schmidt thus serves as a counter-throw from Pep Guardiola. At Bayer, not everyone was happy with Schmidt’s tactics. “We didn’t have a game build-up for three years,” the then Bayer goalkeeper Bernd Leno Schmidt had publicly criticized after Schmidt left.
By the way: when Schmidt is not working in Eindhoven, he lives in Düsseldorf. Where many Gladbach players and officials live.
