Marsch looks to Salzburg again as Leeds United sign Wober

    Leeds United have signed Max Wober for an undisclosed sum, the third player the Premier League club has acquired from Salzburg in the last two transfer windows.

    Head coach Jesse Marsh, who managed Salzburg from 2019 to 2021, brought in Brenden Aaronsohn and Rasmus Christensen at the end of last season and returned to the Austrian club, signing for the first time in the January transfer window.

    Wober spent three and a half years at Salzburg, making 125 appearances and scoring nine goals, winning three league and cup doubles.

    The 24-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with Elland Road and could make his debut in Sunday’s FA Cup third round tie against Cardiff City.

    Wober, who can play both at left and centre-back, made 13 caps for Austria and played for Rapid Vienna, Ajax and Sevilla before March signed him to Salzburg in 2019 year.

    Leeds host West Ham in the Premier League on Wednesday.

    Wober told the Salzburg website: “It was not an easy decision, but I decided to leave Salzburg.

    “The last three and a half years in this city and at this club have had a huge impact on me as a player and as a person. The many moments that I achieved both on and off the field will remain in my memory for a lifetime.

    “If I think back to our first season in the Champions League, our very first match in the competition against Genk or our comeback against Liverpool, I still get goosebumps. Thank you for all these moments that we enjoyed together. I fell in love with Salzburg and consider it my second home.”
