Leipzig hired former Schalke and Spartak Moscow coach Domenico Tedesco on Thursday to replace American coach Jesse Marsch, who left after a run of losses.
Tedesco will have a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season, the club said.
The 36-year-old German hasn’t coached in the Bundesliga since he was fired by Schalke in March 2019 after a 7-0 loss to Manchester City in the Champions League. Schalke was relegated the season after he left.
Tedesco then coached two seasons in Russia with Spartak before he left in May, saying it was hard to be separated from his family during the coronavirus pandemic.
