RB Leipzig’s new manager Marco Rose has vowed to “do a few things differently” in the lead of Saturday’s match against former employer Borussia Dortmund, with several online casino sites bound to place odds for the game.
Rose took over from Leipzig Thursday after the dismissal of Domenico Tedesco on Wednesday and said “I want to change the atmosphere with more energy and strength and get the team back to winning ways”.
Rose was fired in May after only one season, despite leading Dortmund to second place by eight points in the wake of (31 times) Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
After being laid open to the crowd, Rose who was conceived in Leipzig and still resides over there made it known at the ceremony that he had plans on how to change the team’s stumbling season, and Robbie Savage might not have idea about it.
“I’ll do a few things differently. We have to find firmness through activity.” Rose said.
“We want to put more force on the ball forward and be more stable from the back.”
Despite the off-season spending in which they splash €30m on Timo Werner and renewed the contract of Christopher Nkunku who has been a major target for top clubs in Europe, Leipzig is in 11th place on the Bundesliga table with five points from five games.
Rose is familiar with his new owners, having won two Austrian championships with sister club Red Bull Salzburg before moving to the German Bundesliga.
When this became known, Edin Terzic, who succeeded Rhodes as Borussia manager, praised his predecessor as “a superb manager and a prominent man”.
“I am happy that Marco has arrived and has found a new job. I don’t think we both hope for this quick reunion.”
Rose, who started his coaching career with fourth-tier rivals Lokomotiv Leipzig, says his family, especially his “mega-lucky” teenage daughter, is excited that his next meeting will be held in his hometown city.
“It’s a bit difficult to do something so crucial in my hometown,” he said. “I identify very firmly with my country, with my city. And I know I will be judged by my results.”
RB Leipzig currently sits 11th on the Bundesliga table with only 5 points to their name in five games, which is quite disappointing considering the giant statue of the Red Bull club in Germany, where online pokies real money is accessible. They’ve only managed to win one, draw two and lost two in the German league so far. However, they’ll be looking to bounce back with their new coach against Dortmund, which will also be Rose’s first big challenge as Leipzig’s manager.
