Domenico Tedesco fired as head coach of RB Leipzig
After suffering a defeat in the UEFA Champions League to Shakhtar Donetsk by a score of 4-1, RB Leipzig has decided to part ways with head coach Domenico Tedesco.
The morning after that game Die Roten Bullen who play in the Bundesliga made the decision to part ways with the 36-year-old player. This decision came after Die Roten Bullen suffered a 4-0 loss away at Eintracht Frankfurt.
“It was a really difficult choice for us to make but we ultimately decided to let Domenico Tedesco go.
Under Domenico’s direction we enjoyed a fantastic second half of the previous season and as a result we qualified for the Champions League.
“This has been the most successful season in our club’s still relatively short history,” said the managing director of our organization, Oliver Mintzlaff. “We also won our first major title in the DFB Cup.”
In a statement that was published on the organization’s website, Mintzlaff continued by saying that Domenico is an exceptional coach who will undoubtedly have additional success.
“However, after a slow start to the Bundesliga season with five points from five games and especially after the recent games against Eintracht Frankfurt and Shakhtar Donetsk, we lack the conviction that an immediate turnaround can come in the current setup” “However after a slow start to the Bundesliga season with five points from five games”.
After Leipzig fired Jesse Marsch in December 2022 Tedesco took over as manager of the club. At the time Leipzig was in 11th place in the league standings. In the end he guided them to a fourth-place finish in the league with a league-leading 36 points in the Rückrunde to reclaim their spot in the Champions League.
The former Schalke manager also led RB to the semifinals of the UEFA Europa League before guiding them to their first piece of major hardware by guiding them to a penalty shootout victory over Freiburg in the DFB Cup final back in May.
The entire record for Tedesco’s tenure as head coach after 38 matches is 21 wins, eight draws and nine losses with 88 goals scored and 48 allowed.
Borussia Dortmund will be the opponent in Leipzig’s next match which will take place on Saturday at home.
They then have a Champions League match away at Real Madrid the following Wednesday and then they have a match away at Borussia Monchengladbach just before the break for international competition.
The club has stated that they would reveal their decision regarding his replacement very soon.
