RB Leipzig have sacked head coach Jesse March after only four months in charge. He will receive a compensation package from the club to have his contract terminated with immediate effect. The club has had a very underwhelming start to the season in comparison to their previous campaigns. 

As a result, RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has decided to act on their poor form.

“It was not easy for us to part company with Jesse Marsch, because I hold Jesse in high regard as a person and as a coach,” Mintzlaff said in a statement. “It is a shame that things did not work out as we had hoped with this setup, and that this step has now become necessary.

“Unfortunately, the development we were hoping for and the results needed to achieve our goals for the season have not been achieved.”

RB Leipzig are currently 11th in the Bundesliga table and have their European campaign in the balance ahead of their game against Manchester City. 

“We are currently running short of our own expectations and with this decision we want to create a new impulse,” Mintzlaff said. “Regardless of this, however, I also see our players as having a duty and I expect our team, which is very strong in sporting terms, to show its potential and quality on the pitch more consistently than it has done recently.”

The players were reportedly unsettled with his coaching practices. And the board is now working on a full-time replacement, with assistant Achim Beierlorzer taking charge of the big game against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
