Training Ground Guru shared a story on Wednesday morning, revealing Toshack has new been appointed under Marsch ahead of his first game in charge against Leicester City on Saturday.

The Verdict: Shrewd move?

Toshack has never worked under Marsch before, but you’d expect the American would’ve had a major say in the Welshman’s arrival.

You can see why Marsch wanted Toshack, though, especially after he worked wonders in Swansea City’s academy.

The likes of James, Oli McBurnie, Conor Roberts and Joe Rodon all made the step up to senior level with Wales under Toshack in the academy, and with Leeds and Marsch happy to give youngsters a chance, his appointment could be a wise move.
