Pair of awards

Szoboszlai and Marsch recognised by presidents, club managers and coaches

It is not just the Austrian title that is coming it Salzburg again this year! The Austrian Bundesliga's honours for Best Player and Best Coach of 2019/20 are also going to our club.

The presidents, managers and coaches of the Tipico Bundesliga clubs voted Dominik Szoboszlai and Jesse Marsch as the winners.


Dominik Szoboszlai may just be 19 years old, but boy what a championship round he had! Szobo was a step ahead the rest of the league in the final matches of the season and instrumental in our title win. Our Hungarian took a deserved player-of-the-season honour:

I think I have worked really hard for it after the lockdown. I had a total of 17 goal involvements, which honestly I wasn't expecting. I wanted to win everything possible for the team. You're happy to take these honours as a part of that.

Jesse's Masterpiece

With his American charm and sheer endless positivity, Jesse Marsch has not only won hearts and titles, but has also taken the invidual award for Best Coach in 2019/20. For Jesse it was a team job, however:

Winning Coach of the Year for me is a reward for the entire team, which I think is deserved. The trophy is for the whole coaching staff, as we have worked so well together. Losing players in winter brought us even closer together.
