Rose, whose Gladbach side currently sit a place below Dortmund in the league in seventh, becomes the official manager to replace Lucian Favre who was sacked after matchday 11’s 5-1 defeat at the hands of Stuttgart.
Favre had led the club for over two years and was replaced by assistant Edin Terzic on an interim basis.

Dortmund said on their website: “Marco Rose will be new Head Coach at Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund with the beginning of the 2021/2022 season. The 44 year old has agreed to this after speaking with those responsible at BVB.
“The focus for BVB is on the current season and reaching sporting goals in the Bundesliga, the UEFA Champions League and DFB Cup.
“With respect towards all parties involved, Borussia Dortmund after today will not comment on expectations regarding the sporting future under the leadership of Marco Rose until the season 2020/2021 has been completed.”
Sporting director of Gladbach Max Eberl said Rose had activated a clause in his contract that allowed him to leave.
Eberl said: “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 leave this summer. Until then, we will work hard to achieve our goals in the league, cup and Europe together.”
