RB Leipzig have announced that the club has reached an agreement with highly-rated Julian Nagelsmann to become their new head coach from summer 2019.

Nagelsmann, currently in charge of Bundesliga rivals TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, entered the history books when Hoffenheim appointed him as the first team head coach at the age of 28 in October 2015 to become the youngest head coach in Bundeliga history.

RB Leipzig Release

RB Leipzig are delighted to announce that Julian Nagelsmann will join the club for the 2019/20 season. The 30-year-old coach has agreed a contract with Die Roten Bullen until 2023.

Nagelsmann taking over in one year’s time was considered the optimum solution from day one of talks between sporting director Ralf Rangnick and CEO Oliver Mintzlaff.

Due to his current ongoing contract with TSG Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig will not make any further statements regarding the deal and will unveil the new head coach for the upcoming 2018/19 campaign at a press conference ahead of the club’s return to training.
