Leeds United sacked Jesse Marsch


Leeds United fired Jesse Marsch head coach after just one year on the job.

Marsch was fired with the team just above the relegation zone on goal differential and two Premier League games against Manchester United this week.

The 49-year-old was hired as Marcelo Bielsa’s replacement in February 2022 and helped keep the team in the Premier League, which was secured with a thrilling last-day win against Brentford in May.

Marsch then oversaw more than £140 million in spending over the summer and January transfer windows, yet Leeds are now 17th and just a goal difference away from relegation.

The 1-0 defeat against Nottingham Forest on Sunday was the American’s penultimate game in command, extending their Premier League losing streak to seven games.

According to a club statement: “Leeds United can announce that head coach Jesse Marsch has been fired.

“Jesse joined the club in February 2022 and played a key role in keeping the team in the Premier League on the last day of the previous season.

“Rene Maric, Cameron Toshack, and Pierre Barrieu will all go from the club as well.

“We’d like to thank Jesse and his backroom crew for their efforts and wish them the best in the future.

“The process of choosing a new head coach is beginning, and we will keep fans updated in the coming days.”

Marsch made a statement to media following Sunday’s loss to Nottingham Forest in his farewell post-match interview as Leeds manager. He said, “I’m angry and unhappy,”

“I need to figure out how to get more out of the group. I must ensure that we do not feel sorry for ourselves. We must find a way to remain strong and continue. However, I accept responsibility. I need to find a method to pull more out of us so that we don’t lose games when we’re on top.

“It appears to be progressing in the right direction, but it is insufficient. We need to gain more from it.”
