RB Leipzig can play at Union: Now Kurth has to work as a coach

At 2:04 p.m. on Wednesday, a bit of normality returned to RB Leipzig …

After a forced break due to the corona outbreak with four cases, the team was allowed to practice on the training field. All PCR tests taken from players on Tuesday were negative. That is why the Bundesliga team got the green light from the health department – after all players had completed an additional quick test at noon.

So it’s clear: RB will play at Union Berlin tomorrow (8.30 p.m. / DAZN). Even if the coach question is still open at the moment. Who coaches the cops in Berlin?

Head coach Jesse Marsch (48) was only involved virtually during training yesterday. It is true that his corona infection was ten days ago and he could test himself freely. However, it leaked: The virus load in Americans is currently still too high – the health department is therefore not approving it.

Because the team is already taking the bus to Berlin this afternoon and assistant coach Achim Beierlorzer (54) is in quarantine with Corona, Marsch at Union – as of now – is represented by Marco Kurth (43). The ex-professional (including Cottbus, Aue) moved up from the U19 in the summer and mainly takes care of the standard situations.

He will probably be supported by U19 coach Daniel Meyer (42), assistant Sebastian Heidinger (35) and goalkeeping coach Nico Hildebrandt (31).

Good: Goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi (31) was able to complete individual training yesterday, defender Mo Simakan (21) trained with the team.
