Leeds United correspondent Beren Cross has been reacting to Jesse Marsch’s comments regarding Marcelo Bielsa.
The Lowdown: All change before Leicester
The Whites have been extremely busy off the pitch since they were last in action, with the club deciding to sack Bielsa on Sunday morning.
Will Marsch keep Leeds up?
Yes, I still have faith!
No, we are finished!
Marsch was swiftly announced as the Argentine’s successor and will be in the dugout for the first time against Leicester City on Saturday lunchtime.
However, it seems as if the American himself had his reservations on Leeds parting ways Bielsa, talking in his press conference at Thorp Arch on Thursday.
The Latest: Cross reacts
Cross relayed comments from Marsch, who said: “I wanted Marcelo to finish on a high note with the fans.”
The LeedsLive journalist said he was ‘amazed’ that Marsch almost wanted to convince Victor Orta he should continue with Bielsa until the end of the campaign instead of hiring him.
The Verdict: Need to hit the ground running
Making the Whites harder to beat in his first month in charge could go a long way to ensuring the club remain in the Premier League, with back-to-back home games against Aston Villa and Norwich following his first game at the King Power.
Hopefully, the board will look back on their call to part ways with Bielsa as the correct one at the end of the season, but Marsch will need to hit the ground running in order for the club to pull away from the bottom three.
