Monchengladbach manager Marco Rose has dropped a transfer hint on his future plans when he becomes the Borussia Dortmund boss.


Marco Rose has indicated that he will not take players with him from Borussia Monchengladbach when he makes the move to Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

The former Mainz man was announced as Lucien Favre’s permanent successor earlier this week. He will take over from interim manager Edin Terzic at the end of the 2020-21 Bundesliga campaign.

Rumors have grown that Rose will seek to take some of his current side’s biggest names from Monchengladbach over to Dortmund


The 44-year-old has now poured cold water on such claims.

Asked whether he would look to take some of Gladbach’s strongest players with him to his next job, Rose offered a firm denial, stating that he does not intend to lure members of his current squad with him.

“If Marco Rose says he’s not going to take a player to Borussia Dortmund, then he’s not going to take a player to Borussia Dortmund,” the 44-year-old was quoted by Sport 1. “That’s it.”


Rose also admitted that he had faced a tough call in activating his release clause and making the move from the club he arrived at in 2019, adding: “I decided on the exciting job of Borussia Dortmund. It wasn’t easy.”
