Leeds: Jesse Marsch continues to have board’s support

Leeds: Jesse Marsch continues to have board’s support -Leeds United News

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch will remain in charge as the club’s manager despite the 3-2 defeat to Fulham, according to The Athletic journalist Phil Hay.

The Lowdown: Leeds beaten again

The Whites were hoping to pick up a much-needed Premier League win on Sunday afternoon but again ended up hugely disappointed.

Despite Leeds taking the lead at Elland Road, Fulham ended up prevailing 3-2 in the end, with plenty of home supporters venting their frustration at the result.

There is now growing pressure on Marsch to keep his job, with Hay outlining where the club’s board stand on the 48-year-old.

The Latest: Marsch to remain in charge

Taking to Twitter after the Fulham match, Hay said that Leeds’ stance remains the same and the American will carry on as manager.

The reporter tweeted:

“Jesse Marsch says the responsibility is his as Fulham defeat raises the pressure on Leeds United’s manager. No change in the club’s support of him at this stage.”

The Verdict: Refreshing loyalty

While some supporters may well want to see Marsch sacked at this point, it is refreshing to see the owners standing by him for now, showing a loyalty which often doesn’t exist in modern football, with four Premier League managers already losing their jobs since the start of this season.

The exception to that rule has been Steve Cooper, with Nottingham Forest recently extending his contract to 2025 despite being bottom of the table currently.

Leeds supporters, try our celebrity fan quiz! First up, Sir Nick Faldo the Whites fan?

They are showing signs of a resurgence, picking up four points this week with two clean sheets and a famous win over Liverpool, and the hope is that Marsch manages to do the same with the Whites.

Of course, there is only so long that bad results can continue before a change is needed, but for now, the 48-year-old ought to be given time to turn things around.
