Leeds: Marcos Abad set to remain as goalkeeping coach

Leeds: Marcos Abad set to remain as goalkeeping coach -Leeds United News

Leeds United goalkeeper coach Marcos Abad, whose importance at Thorp Arch has been labelled as ‘huge’, is expected to stay at the club and work under Jesse Marsch, according to Training Ground Guru.

The Lowdown: Bielsa departs

The Whites decided to sack Marcelo Bielsa on the weekend after three-and-a-half years in charge at Elland Road following a 4-0 defeat to Tottenham.

Correct to part ways with Bielsa?

Yes, 100%

No, terrible decision!

Marsch has since been named as the Argentine’s successor, penning a deal through to 2025 in Yorkshire.

It looks as if Cameron Toshack will serve as the American’s assistant, and Marsch will also be able to call upon Abad to continue his work alongside Illan Meslier.

The Latest: Abad set to stay

Training Ground Guru shared a story on Monday regarding Bielsa’s staff.

They claimed that assistants Diego Reyes, Pablo Quiroga and Luis Ouvina and fitness coach Benoit Delaval will leave, whereas head of analysis Guillermo Alonso and Abad look set to stay.

The Verdict: Orta influence

Pundit Kevin Campbell believes Abad should be given ‘huge credit’ for the work he has done with Meslier, and Victor Orta has surely had a say in the goalkeeping coach and Alonso staying put at Elland Road.

Indeed, the pair both worked under Orta at Middlesbrough, so the director of football has now collaborated with the duo at two English clubs and is clearly a big fan of their work if they are not joining the Bielsa exodus.

It seems to be a decision that makes sense, especially when you look at Meslier’s progression at Elland Road, with his Transfermarkt valuation at a career-high £18m figure.
