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.
