TSG 1899 Hoffenheim announced Thursday afternoon that Julian Nagelsmann will end his managerial stint at the club following the completion of the 2018-2019 campaign.
At just 30-years-old, Nagelsmann is one of the youngest managers in Europe. The youngster has led Hoffenheim to a UEFA Champions League berth next season after finishing the 2017-2018 Bundesliga campaign in third place, winning 15 matches, scoring 66 goals which is second-most behind champions Bayern Munich.
As Tim Weise’s successor, Nagelsmann was titled a ‘young Mourinho’ by his coaching staff and football peers.
Just an hour later, RB Leipzig announced that Nagelsmann will become their manager following next season. Throughout this year, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal all wanted the young German. Negelsmann contract with RB Leipzig will expire in 2023.
TSG Hoffenheim have also yet to announce their shortlist of replacements.
