Jaissle, who currently coaches Austrian side, FC Liefering will assume the role on a two-year contract when Marsch leaves the Wals-Siezenheim based outfit to join RB Leipzig as their new manager at the end of the current season.
Jaissle, 33, began his coaching career with the under-17 side at RB Leipzig in 2014, before leaving the club to become Alexander Zorniger’s assistant manager at Danish side, Brøndby IF in 2017. After leaving Brøndby, he joined Red Bull Salzburg as under-18 coach, before he succeeded Bo Svensson as manager of Liefering in January.
“I have known him for a few years already. He is young, ambitious and suits our club really well.
“The way he works and develops young players is exceptional. He was our ideal candidate as a result. He is not a big name yet, but we are all about giving young players and also young coaches a chance.‘
In a statement released by the club, Stenny said: “The club is aware of a verbal altercation.
“We have spoken to the players involved, David Cox (Albion Rovers) who was on the bench, and Jonathan Tiffoney (Stenhousemuir) who was playing.
“Both players are making claims of serious and wholly inappropriate comments being made during the game that have implications for player wellbeing and mental health.
“Whilst we accept that things can get said during a game, we believe the allegations are sufficiently serious enough to merit a more detailed investigation.”
Former Annan Athletic and Cowdenbeath striker Cox has gone public many times about his battle with depression and the abuse he has received within football.
In a social media video, the part-time player said: “Second half just starting Albion Rovers-Stenhousemuir and I have left the stadium. I wasn’t playing tonight, I was on the bench.
“One of the boys in the Stenny team, we were having a bit of to and fro and they had a go at my mental health. Told me I should have done it right the first time.
“Some folk might not think it’s a big deal, but I’m fed up listening to it. I don’t get paid enough for it.
“If they had put me on the park, I’d probably have broken the boy’s legs deliberately. I tried to speak to the referees about it, but they didn’t want to know because they didn’t hear it.
“So I’m going to do something about it and for me it’s leaving the game. I’m done with it. I either keep playing and I’m going to batter somebody on the park, which is not good and will result in me being the bad one.”
Albion Rovers said in a statement: “The health, safety and well-being of everyone associated with Albion Rovers is of paramount importance to us.
“Football is a place for all and we believe is should be enjoyed without fear, favour or prejudice.
“We are aware of an alleged incident that occurred during this evening’s match and have been in touch with David Cox to offer our unconditional backing and support.”
Shrewsbury Town manager Steve Cotterill has been given the clear to attend Saturday’s League One match with Oxford United at Montgomery Waters Meadow – the first match he will have seen in person in 2021.
He has since been in hospital twice after suffering with Covid-19 pneumonia.
Cotterill was discharged from hospital almost two months ago.
A club statement released by the Blues said; “We are delighted to report that Steve Cotterill is on course to return to Montgomery Waters Meadow for Saturday’s home fixture with Oxford United.
“It’s only six weeks since Steve was discharged from Bristol Royal Infirmary.
“Town’s boss has been working incredibly hard during long walks, yoga classes, visiting the gym and using weights in order to return to Shropshire to his players prior to the end of the season – despite still being on medication and having CT scans, tests and X-rays over the coming 10 days.”
Shrewsbury’s players have been in the day-to-day hands of Cotterill’s assistant Aaron Wilbraham over the last four months, for training and matchdays.
However, Cotterill has tried to remain as direct as he can, while working from home, via telephones and Zoom calls.
Shrewsbury are currently 17th in League One, and are safe from the drop. They are nine points clear of the relegation places with just three games to play, while the sides beneath them have all played a game more than the Shropshire based side.
Saturday’s opponents Oxford are seventh, just a point shy off the play-off places.
Marsch, who currently coaches Austrian side, Red Bull Salzburg will assume the role on a two-year contract when Nagelsmann leaves the Saxony based outfit to join Bayern Munich as their new manager at the end of the current season.
Marsch, 47, was assistant coach at Leipzig during the 2018/2019 season, as Ralf Rangnick’s side finished 3rd in the Bundesliga.
He won the league and cup double during his first year in Austria and is on course to replicate the same this term, with a cup final against LASK Linz coming up on Saturday 1 May and they have a six-point advantage over second-placed Rapid Wien in the Austrian Bundesliga with only four matches remaining.
“In Jesse Marsch, we have been able to recruit our main head coach and quickly fill the most important position in the sporting side of the club with a top coach,” said RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff.
“Jesse has been part of the Red Bull football group for over six years now and has done incredible work in all his roles so far, constantly developing step-by-step.
“It’s of course a great advantage that he already worked for a year at RB Leipzig. Jesse knows the club, the city of Leipzig and, above all, the club and playing philosophy.
“Alongside his qualities as a coach, Jesse is characterised above all by his positively ambitious style, which he uses to motivate and engage the people and around the club.
“We’re looking forward to working with Jesse Marsch and to continuing our successful path with him.”
Second-placed Leipzig can all but guarantee Champions League football for a third consecutive season, if they steer clear of defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Saturday afternoon.
It now means that Balbuena will be able to feature for West Ham as they make the trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on Monday, 3 May.
The Irons, who are fifth in the Premier League, have never played in the Champions League in their history and are currently three points behind fourth placed Chelsea, who occupy the final qualifying spot for next seasons Champions League, with just five games of the season remaining.
West Ham fell behind to Timo Werner’s goal when referee Chris Kavanagh gave Balbuena his marching orders, after watching a replay of the incident on a pitchside monitor following a check by the video assistant referee.
At the conclusion of the game, David Moyes added that: “It was a really poor decision, a really rank, rotten decision and it shouldn’t be given.
“Where’s he meant to put his foot? We had a day where the refereeing has been really poor.”
After leaving the Rhein-Neckar-Arena to join Leipzig in 2019, he led the Red Bulls to a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga as well as the semi-final stages of the Champions League during his first season at the helm.
Nagelsmann’s side are currently seven points ahead of third-placed Wolfsburg with three league matches remaining.
This season, the Saxony based side reached the last 16 of the Champions League, where they were knocked out by Liverpool, and they take on Werder Bremen in the semi-final of the DFB-Pokal on Friday evening.
“It’s still too early to say goodbye and otherwise talk about memories, because I’m not finished here in Leipzig,” said Nagelsmann.
“My mission will end in the summer, but until then it will continue at full throttle. We have grown into a sworn bunch that finally want a title.
“I have never made a secret of the fact I am excited about the coaching position at Bayern Munich and that I would be happy to take on this job if this unique opportunity should arise.”
Six Trophies in over a year in charge and another Bundesliga title incoming- why is Flick departing the Bavarians?
Flick joined Bayern as Niko Kovac’s assistant in 2019 and took over on a temporary basis when the former Croatia international was dismissed by The Bavarians.
He then oversaw a stunning rise in fortunes, also winning the 2019-20 German Cup, and was awarded with a deal until June 2023.
Bayern also won the Club World Cup in February, which was Flick’s sixth trophy just over a year in charge of The Reds.
The Bavarian giants are seven points ahead of second-placed RB Leipzig as they close in on a ninth Bundesliga title in a row, but Flick’s side were knocked out by Paris St-Germain at the Champions League quarter-final stage earlier this month.
Bayern president Hainer complemented Flick’s work and said he would like to “expressly thank” the departing manager.
“He took over our team at a difficult time in 2019 and went on to win six trophies, with the seventh hopefully to follow,” Hainer said.
“He will always have a place in FC Bayern’s history books.”
All of the six Premier League sides that were going to be involved in the European Super League (ESL) have now officially withdrawn from the tournament.
Manchester City became the first club to pull out after Chelsea stated their intention to do the same by preparing the necessary documentation to withdrew.
The other four teams – Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham – have followed Manchester City and Chelsea by also announcing their intentions to leave the breakaway competition.
The 12-team Super League, set up by the six afore-mentioned teams and Spain’s Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid and Italy’s AC Milan and Juventus was confirmed on Sunday to widespread criticism.
In a statement, the ESL said: “The European Super League is convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change.
“We are proposing a new European competition because the existing system does not work.
“Our proposal is aimed at allowing the sport to evolve while generating resources and stability for the full football pyramid, including helping to overcome the financial difficulties experienced by the entire football community as a result of the pandemic.
“It would also provide materially enhanced solidarity payments to all football stakeholders.
“Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due to the pressure put on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations as was demonstrated today by a court decision to protect the Super League from third party actions.
“Given the current circumstances, we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always having in mind our goals of offering fans the best experience possible while enhancing solidarity payments for the entire football community.”
The 14 Premier League clubs that are not taking part in the new European Super League have “unanimously and vigorously” turned down plans for the breakaway competition.
The Premier League met without Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham to talk about the newly-announced tournament at a virtual meeting on Tuesday morning.
The meeting, which lasted two-and-a-half-hours, was chaired by Premier League CEO Richard Masters, explored ways to accordingly given an answer to the proposals.
In an official statement, The Premier League said: “The Premier League, alongside The FA, met with clubs today to discuss the immediate implications of the Super League proposal.
“The 14 clubs at the meeting unanimously and vigorously rejected the plans for the competition. The Premier League is considering all actions available to prevent it from progressing, as well as holding those Shareholders involved to account under its rules.
“The League will continue to work with key stakeholders including fan groups, Government, UEFA, The FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to protect the best interests of the game and call on those clubs involved in the proposed competition to cease their involvement immediately.
“The Premier League would like to thank supporters and all stakeholders for the support they have shown this week on this significant issue. The reaction proves just how much our open pyramid and football community means to people.”
In a memo that was sent to all 20 clubs before Tuesday’s meeting, Masters wrote: “We do not and cannot support such a concept.
“This venture cannot be launched without English clubs and we call upon any club contemplating associating themselves or joining this venture to walk away immediately before irreparable damage is done.”
Former Spurs and Hull City midfielder Mason, 29, who retired from playing in 2018, steps up from his role as head of player development at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Chris Powell and Nigel Gibbs have been named as Mason’s assistants, while Ledley King retains the role of first-team coach and former goalkeeper Michel Vorm has returned to the North London outfit as goalkeeping coach.
Mason’s first game at the helm of the first team is Wednesday evenings Premier League match against Southampton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, prior to leading out his boyhood club out at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they face holders Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
In a club statement, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: “We have great belief in this squad of talented players
We have a cup final and six Premier League games ahead of us and we shall now focus all our energies on achieving a strong finish to the season.”
Mason joined Spurs in 1999 at the age of eight, he then signed professional terms at the club in August 2008 and went onto make 70 appearances across all competitions during his stay at White Hart Lane, before he joined Hull City in August 2016.
Diego Llorente scored a late equaliser for Leeds with three minutes left as Liverpool were denied a place in the top four of the Premier League – as unpredictability reigns over what that would mean following confirmation of the European Super League.
Liverpool are one of 12 clubs that have agreed to join a breakaway ESL that will “commence as soon as practicable”. However, even if the Super League does not commence next season, UEFA have said that they could ban the clubs – which includes six English teams – from European competition as a diversion.
There was a strange mood around the first game that involved any of the 12 teams since Sunday night’s statement, with protests inside and outside of Elland Road.
Inside the arena Leeds players donned T-shirts saying ‘Earn it’ next to the Champions League logo and ‘Football is for the fans’. A banner behind one goal had the same message.
The hosts left the same shirts in Liverpool’s changing rooms, in case The Reds wanted to join in the protests and this move angered the visitors manager, Jurgen Klopp, who said that he does not like the idea of the ESL , but that he as well as his players had no say in matter at all.
Liverpool were in complete control during the first half and deservedly took the lead when Trent Alexander-Arnold got on the end of Diogo Jota’s fine pass and cut it back to Sadio Mane to slot into an empty net after Illan Meslier rushed out of goal.
This was the Senegal international’s first Premier League goal for Liverpool since January, a run of 10 games.
Leeds were much better in the second half and Patrick Bamford hit the crossbar way before Llorente headed in his first goal for Bielsa’s men.
Liverpool host 15th placed, Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday afternoon and that match kicks off at 12:30pm (BST), whilst Leeds have another tough assignment as they welcome 2nd placed, Manchester United to Elland Road on Sunday afternoon and that encounter kicks off at 14:00.
