Leeds: Pundit makes claim on Jesse Marsch’s future

Leeds: Pundit makes claim on Jesse Marsch’s future -Leeds United News

Football Insider pundit Tam McManus believes that Leeds United may still part ways with Jesse Marsch despite a terrific win over Liverpool last weekend.

The Lowdown: Leeds out of the bottom three

The Whites headed into the Premier League clash at Anfield in the relegation zone and level on points with bottom club Nottingham Forest. However, a shock 2-1 win thanks to Crysencio Summerville’s late winner elevated Marsch’s side into 15th place.

A home fixture against Bournemouth is next on the agenda for Leeds, a match which feels crucial in the context of the club’s season prior to the upcoming break for the World Cup.

The Latest: McManus’ comments

Talking to Football Insider, McManus still feels that Leeds could sack Marsch and cited unrest from some supporters in recent weeks, labelling that as a ‘big’ factor.

The former Hibernian striker said: “The World Cup comes at a great time for any club that wants to change their manager and I think we will see that at a few clubs.

“They will be looking. Marsch will want to get to that World Cup break with a few wins under his belt. They have some tough games, I believe they play Tottenham and Man City before that break so we will see where they are.

“A couple of losses and if they fall into the relegation zone then that result against Liverpool might not save him. They have not won enough this season and that’s the bottom line.

“I saw that the fans had turned on him a few weeks ago, that’s always big for a manager’s future. So we have to see but fans’ minds can change, we have seen it before. It’s all up to Marsch not but he has a few big weeks ahead.”

The Verdict: Saturday’s game is huge

If Leeds fail to make it back-to-back wins on Saturday, then you’d expect that talk of Marsch receiving the sack will return heading into the World Cup.

As McManus states, some Whites fans have turned on Marsch already, with unrest coming in the 2-0 defeat to Leicester City last month.

Further frustration could be voiced if Leeds don’t take three points on Saturday, but on the other hand, supporters could chant his name in joy if the Whites win again, making this weekend’s fixture a big one for him and the club.
