Leeds United are ‘expected’ to name Jesse Marsch as Marcelo Bielsa’s replacement as manager on Monday, according to a new update on the situation.
The Lowdown: Bielsa sacked as Leeds manager
On Sunday, it was confirmed that Bielsa had been sacked as Whites boss following a dreadful run of form which has them get dragged into a Premier League relegation battle.
The hunt is now on to sort his successor and it looks as though it is all but done.
The Latest: Marsch set to be appointed by Leeds
According to BBC Radio 5 Live on Monday morning [7:40am], former RB Leipzig manager Marsch will be named as Leeds’ new manager later in the day.
The radio report stated: “Leeds are expected to appoint the American coach Jesse Marsch later.”
The Verdict: Huge job on his hands
Assuming all goes as planned today, Marsch is an exciting appointment in many ways, with many rating him highly during his time at RB Salzburg, who he guided into the Champions League.
That being said, Marsch will need to come in and hit the ground running immediately, not only in terms of Leeds’ Premier League survival hopes but also to show that he is worthy of filling the void left by such a beloved figure in Bielsa.
In other news, another figure has been mentioned as a possible Bielsa replacement. Find out who it is here.
