Rene Holzinger (General Manager) - Good afternoon Marcel, thanks for coming here today. With me here is Stephan Reiter and Mark Lang our managing directors, if you have any questions throughout please ask?
Marcel – Okay, thank you.
Stephan Reiter (Managing Director) – It is in our interests to appoint a new manager as soon as possible and we would like you to know we have already had chats with a couple of other people, but you are here due to the outstanding work you have done with the youth teams around Austria.
Marcel – I went back into coaching after a while out. It’s the thing I have always loved to do, but I had to make a career change at a point.
Rene Holzinger – I think what’s best to do now is go on a tour around the ground to give you some time to think about what you want to do.
Marcel – I would love that, cheers.
Rene Holzinger – So, you can see what the club has to offer. We have an offer ready for you if you would like to progress?
Marcel – This club has proven it wants to be the best it possibly can. Lots of focus is on younger players and what they can bring to the team and this philosophy suits my style of coaching so I would be honoured to be given the chance to manage this team this season.
Rene Holzinger – That is exactly what we wanted to hear. The job offer is the first team manager position, €29,000 a week starting today 7th July 2019 until 30/6/2021.
Marcel – I’m excited to see all the players and set our targets for the coming season. Thanks for inviting me here today, I will do everything I can to achieve success for this club.
Stephan Reiter – So, we will just need your signature and then we can organise a press conference for the near future. Thanks very much for your time and on the behalf of everyone at the club we wish you the very best!
This confirms the legal agreement between FC Red Bull Salzburg and Marcel Schmid.
The contract will run until 30/6/2021.
