Celtic could now consider appointing Red Bull Salzburg boss Matthias Jaissle as their new manager, according to a recent report from 90min.
What’s the latest news from the Celtic manager?
Celtic bosses are compiling a shortlist of coaching targets, with Manchester City’s Enzo Maresca at the top, but there are a number of other potential successors to Ange Postecoglou, including Jesse Marsch and Bodo/Glimt’s Kjetil Knutsen.
West Ham United boss David Moyes is the Hoops”priority“goal, according to journalist Santi Aouna, with reports suggesting the Scot could leave his current role, regardless of whether his side win the Europa Conference League final tonight.
Alternatively, former player Kris Commons has urged the board to make a “box-office” appointment by going for someone like Graham Potter, as his attacking style of play is “everything you want” in a modern manager.
Another manager in this mold is Jaissle, with BBC journalist Raj Chohan in the past claims that he plays “liquid footy”, and there are now reports that Celtic could consider the RB Salzburg boss as a successor to Postecoglou.
According to a report from 90min, the Hoops could turn to the 35-year-old manager, but a number of other potential options are being mentioned, including Marsch, Moyes and Brendan Rodgers.
It appears that Celtic’s interest is tentative at this stage, but the German will certainly be considered.
Who is Matthias Jaissle?
The young manager has started to make a name for himself in the Austrian league, leading RB Salzburg to two league titles and an Austrian Cup, and what is equally impressive is the style of play he has implemented at the Red Bull Arena.
Journalist Raphael Honigstein think the Nurtingen-born coach can become the “next big thing”, and the man himself has done that spoken of his desire to play “brave and bold” football, even when his team faced tough, very tough competition at Chelsea.
The BBC’s Chohan has too specified the former FC Liefering coach may be a better appointment than Marsch, given that he developed Marsch’s Salzburg side in possession when the American left to join RB Leipzig.
Despite his age, the Salzburg boss already has plenty of experience competing for silverware, and he became the youngest manager ever to successfully defend the Austrian Bundesliga title this season.
Appointing Jaissle would be a risk, as he has no experience of working outside of Austria, but he could be a smart appointment, given that he has already experienced some success and plays an exciting brand of football.
