LEIPZIG, Germany — Leipzig has extended coach Marco Rose's contract by one year in another sign of continuity after earlier signing a new agreement with star forward Benjamin Sesko.

Rose has been at Leipzig for two years and his contract had been due to expire at the end of next season.

Leipzig finished the last Bundesliga season in fourth, one place lower than in Rose's first campaign, but he won praise for integrating young players like Sesko and for Leipzig's close 2-1 aggregate loss in the Champions League to eventual winner Real Madrid. He also won the German Cup at Leipzig in 2023.

Rose previously coached Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Moenchengladbach in Germany and also won the Austrian title twice with Salzburg.

Leipzig extended its contract with 21-year-old Slovenian forward Sesko through 2029 last week.
