Leeds: Franz Schiemer unlikely to stay at Elland Road

Leeds: Franz Schiemer unlikely to stay at Elland Road -Leeds United News

Leeds United assistant manager Franz Schiemer is unlikely to remain at Elland Road ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge, Joe Donnohue reports.

The Lowdown: Schiemer and Marsch

Marsch arrived at Leeds at the end of February, replacing Marcelo Bielsa with the aim of keeping the Whites in the Premier League.

The American brought in both Cameron Toshack and Schiemer, with the latter previously working with Marsch for 94 games at RB Salzburg.

Leeds have picked up on the pitch under the new-look coaching team, taking 11 points from a possible 24, however, they are still in real danger of dropping down to the Championship with just four games remaining.

The Latest: Donnohue’s post

Leeds journalist Donnohue took to Twitter on Wednesday evening, sharing a story for The Yorkshire Evening Post, stating that it is ‘unlikely’ Schiemer will stay in Yorkshire beyond this season.

Donnohue added that Schiemer is set to return to Austria this summer, with his family not expected to make a permanent move to England.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

The Verdict: Another?

It looks as if Marsch will lose star man Raphinha this summer, with the winger reportedly closing in on a move to Barcelona.

Exits may well not stop there on the pitch, with Kalvin Phillips also a man in demand, so this latest update on Schiemer isn’t ideal for the Leeds boss – the last thing he needs is a huge overhaul on and off the pitch.

Marsch even previously credited Schiemer with overseeing set-piece drills, an area where Leeds have improved in recent months.

Unfortunately, it looks as if the Austrian’s stay in Yorkshire will be a short-lived one, which could leave Marsch on the search for a new number two this summer.
