Salzburg: Marsch Drawing Interest from Celtic and Gladbach

Red Bull Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch has caught the eye of several big clubs who may be planning on making an offer to the experienced American. Celtic legend Packie Bonner and Scottish national team manager James McFadden have both mentioned Marsch as a possible successor to Neil Lennon who vacated his post last week.

"I want to put up Jesse Marsch as a contender," said Bonner to BBC Scotland. "He thinks slightly different. Of course, he's got the experience now of being at Salzburg. He's got good communication skills. But he thinks outside the box. That's what I like about him."

Celtic are currently miles behind Glasgow Rangers who have returned to glory under manager Steven Gerrard. More than likely, Marsch will be picking up a rebuild project but his experience with young players may be exactly what the team needs.

"You look at the model Salzburg have," said McFadden. "They identify young talent, Erling Haaland being one. Naby Keita, who's now at Liverpool. They identify these players young, knowing they're going to sell them on. That's the Red Bull model."

Marsch isn't just being courted by the iconic Scottish club. Word is that Borussia Monchengladbach will be losing their manager, Marco Rose, to Dortmund at the conclusion of the season. Gladbach has expressed interest in bringing in Marsch, the same way they grabbed Rose after several successful campaigns in Austria.

Werder Breman have also shown interest, making Marsch one of the more sought after names in football and a burgeoning American standout on the European stage.

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more

Ex-Red Bulls Coach Gerhard Struber Shares Thoughts on MLS and Salzburg

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced Red Bull News Network had the chance to communicate with former New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, now the manager of Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Struber was with New York from the end of the 2020 campaign through to the early part of 2023. Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe. You spent nearly three seasons in Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls, what did you learn from that experience that has made you a different coach at Red Bull Salzburg? Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
