“I sat with Ralf Rangnick, and a mentor of his, Helmut Gross, and we spent one full day talking about football, watching training, looking at tactics, and thinking about how he had developed a style of play”
If Jesse Marsch is in the process of establishing himself as America’s most respected coach, he will owe that status to the extraordinary education he has received from working so closely with no less a figure than the innovative Ralf Rangnick. For all of the German’s influence, however, Marsch’s work ethic and desire to continue to further his abilities as a coach ensure that he not only makes the most of the opportunities he receives, but that he succeeds in creating others.
Discussing his time with Rangnick, the importance of embracing the culture of both a new country and that country’s football scene, the significant potential of Erling Braut Haaland, and more, Marsch – scheduled to speak in the next CV Live webinar – answers questions from fellow coaches in an exclusive Ask The Coach with The Coaches’ Voice. A manager with a rapidly growing reputation reveals many of the secrets to his success.
