The Bundesliga giants have struck a deal to end their search for a permanent replacement for Favre as manager.

Borussia Monchengladbach have announced their manager Marco Rose will leave at the end of the season to take charge of Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.

The 44-year-old will succeed Edin Terzic, who has taken the reins at Signal Iduna Park since Lucien Favre’s dismissal in December, in the summer.

Gladbach confirmed the appointment in a statement on Monday by stating Rose had triggered the €5m release clause on his contract, which was due to expire next year, and that his next club will be Dortmund.

“We have held a lot of talks in recent weeks to discuss Marco’s future. Unfortunately, he has opted to trigger a clause in his contract and move to Borussia Dortmund in the summer,” read a statement from Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl.

Rose joined Gladbach in 2019 after a successful two-year spell in charge of Austrian club RB Salzburg. He led the club to a fourth-place Bundesliga finish in his first season.

The former Mainz left-back has gone one better this term by leading Gladbach to the Champions League knockout stages. In fact, they have a last-16 tie with Manchester City coming up next week in Borussia-Park.

Salzburg boss Jesse Marsch, Eintracht Frankfurt coach Adi Hutter, and Werder Bremen’s Florian Kohfeldt are reportedly in contention to replace Rose as the next Gladbach manager.
