Borussia Mönchengladbach has announced that their coach Marco Rose will leave the club for Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.
The 44-year-old, who led Gladbach to fourth in his first season in charge and is preparing his side next week to face Manchester City in the Champions League, will replace Edin Terzic at Dortmund after they agreed to pay his release clause of €5 million.
“In recent weeks, we have held a lot of talks to discuss the future of Marco,” Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl said in a statement on Monday.
“Unfortunately, in his deal, he has opted to trigger a clause and leave this summer. Until then, we will work hard to accomplish our goals together in the league, cup, and Europe.”
Midway through the season, Terzic took over from Lucien Favre at Dortmund, but they fell to sixth in the standings after just one victory in their last six league games.
Jesse Marsch of RB Salzburg, Werder Bremen’s Florian Kohfeldt and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Adi Hütter has been linked to the position in recent weeks.
