Leeds United would consider making an approach for Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou if they sack Jesse Marsch, according to journalist Dean Jones.
The Lowdown: Marsch still under pressure
Not even that result could stave off reports that the American is on borrowed time at Elland Road, a feeling which would only grow if the Whites fail to follow up that result with a win over Bournemouth this afternoon.
Indeed, Jones has suggested that Leeds could be looking north of the border for a new manager if they decide to part with the 48-year-old.
The Latest: Postecoglou move could be lined up
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones said that Postecoglou is a possible contender to take over from Marsch at Elland Road if the latter is relieved of his duties.
The journalist said:
“If they do have to change manager, it’ll be the names that get linked with all the other jobs at the moment, and Postecoglou, and people like that, will probably be in the frame too.”
The Verdict: Could be a brilliant option
Postecoglou has done a superb job at Celtic, winning the Premiership title last season while also getting his hands on the Scottish League Cup and guiding the club back into the Champions League group stage.
Furthermore, the Australian has had the Hoops playing some excellent football along the way, not to mention quickly endearing himself to the Parkhead fan base for his actions away from the pitch as well as the on-field results.
Although Postecoglou hasn’t yet proven himself in a major European league, he would be an intriguing option who could connect with Leeds’ fans in a manner not dissimilar to Marcelo Bielsa in terms of his down-to-earth nature.
