Jesse Marsch, Leeds manager, has been let go after being in charge for less than a year. The team’s recent defeat to Nottingham Forest marked their seventh consecutive Premier League game without a win and currently, they are 17th in the league table, only avoiding the relegation zone by goal difference.
Marsch was appointed after Marcelo Bielsa and led Leeds to a 17th place finish last season. The club has released a statement thanking Marsch and his staff for their efforts and wishing them well for the future. The process of finding a new head coach has begun, and the club promises to keep fans updated. Along with Marsch, coaches Rene Maric, Cameron Toshack, and Pierre Barrieu have also been let go.
Leeds will be facing Manchester United in two upcoming games, first at Old Trafford on Wednesday, followed by another match at Elland Road on Sunday. With the recent dismissal of Jesse Marsch, the team will be led by coaches Michael Skubala, Paco Gallardo, and Chris Armas, who was just named as Marsch’s assistant last week, for the game in Manchester.
This season, Marsch managed to secure only four wins out of 20 league matches, with six draws and 10 losses. His last match in charge resulted in a defeat to Nottingham Forest, leaving him with a 25% win rate after 32 Premier League games as the manager of Leeds. Before taking the helm at Leeds, Marsch was a coach for RB Leipzig, New York Red Bulls, and Red Bull Salzburg. He took over the team when they were 16th in the league table.
