Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former Premier League midfielder Lee Hendrie feels Jesse Marsch could have brought a lot to Celtic.
The RB Salzburg manager had been linked with the vacant Celtic job; however, he was recently named as the next RB Leipzig boss following Julian Nagelsmann’s decision to join Bayern Munich in the summer.
Eddie Howe now looks to be the only man for the gig at Celtic Park, though it does seem like he has always been the Glasgow giants’ No.1 choice, with reports suggesting that a deal could be wrapped up soon.
As far as alternatives go, though, Hendrie believes Marsch certainly could have been a good option for Celtic.
On the RB Salzburg boss, the ex-Aston Villa player told TT:
“I’m all for up-and-coming managers coming in with a great style and a great method. I just don’t know which way they’re going to turn. They’ve [Celtic] taken some time and they’ve really took their time on this one.”
Celtic will not want this to drag out for too much longer, as they need to get a start on their rebuild job as soon as possible after failing miserably in the Scottish Premiership title race this season.
As for Marsch, big things will be expected of him in Germany, with the 47-year-old arriving with a growing reputation after impressing many in the game, including Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
