RB Leipzig fired trainer Jesse Marsch on Sunday.

The American had only been working for Brian Brobbey's club for five months, who received little playing time from him.

Marsch was the successor to Julian Nagelsmann who left for Bayern Munich last summer, among whom Leipzig belonged to the top in the Bundesliga.

Under Marsch, the club performed much less well.

After Friday's 2-1 defeat against Union Berlin, Leipzig is in eleventh place.

Assistant coach Achim Beierlorzer is for the time being with ultimate responsibility at Leipzig.

He will sit on the bench on Tuesday during the Champions League match at the Red Bull Arena against Manchester City.

Marsch worked for Red Bull Salzburg until last summer.

What is special is that he has not been on the bench at Leipzig in the last few games because he tested positive for corona.

Marsch departure may be good news for Brobbey

Marsch's departure could be good news for Brobbey.

The attacker of the Dutch Juniors was not really in the plans of the coach, who granted him 111 minutes of playing time in the Bundesliga this season.

Because Brobbey is on the bench in Germany, he has been linked to Ajax for weeks, which wants to add an attacker to the selection next winter.

Nineteen-year-old Brobbey left the Johan Cruijff ArenA transfer-free last summer.

In an interview last Friday, Ten Hag said that he is still in contact with Brobbey.

"He could compete with Sébastien Haller. With his goals, purposefulness, speed and charisma. He knows our club and fits well in our dressing room," said Ten Hag about a possible return of Brobbey.

Brian Brobbey has not yet scored in the Bundesliga.
