American Jesse Marsch is no longer coach of Bundesliga team Leipzig.
The club said Sunday that the two had “mutually agreed to end the cooperation. That is the result of an in-depth analysis and intensive discussions” after Friday’s 2-1 loss at Union Berlin.
It was Leipzig’s third successive domestic defeat and it left the team midtable in the Bundesliga, away from the Champions League qualification places that it has targeted.
“We have a squad that is definitely among the three or four best in the Bundesliga. That’s also our target,” Leipzig chairman Oliver Mintzlaff said after the loss in Berlin.
