The 49ers Enterprises do have little say in what happens to Jesse Marsch at Leeds United, but it will be down to Andrea Radrizzani as majority shareholder to make the decision.

According to Mail+, the Americans have massive plans for the Whites but they certainly don’t involve relegation from the Premier League as the club continue to struggle.

Talks are underway with Radrizzani and the board on how to help Marsch, rather than sack him at this moment, although concerns are rising in the boardroom at Elland Road.

Paraag Marathe has been spending a lot more time with Radrizzani in recent weeks and months, including the Italian making the trip out to San Francisco.

Spotted at Elland Road more frequently, the 49ers’ chief plays a huge role at Leeds with their full takeover still in place to be activated before 2024.

Plans will then be rolled out to expand Elland Road and bring the Boston Spa-based training ground onto the same site, something that Premier League revenue certainly helps.


Things are turning sour at Elland Road very quickly.

Not many fans will have confidence in Radrizzani, Victor Orta and Angus Kinnear to do the right thing given that they pushed so heavily to bring Marsch in when Marcelo Bielsa was sacked.

The crowd has turned on the board and the 49ers Enterprises will be looking from the outside in with concerned faces, and they have every right to.

Leeds look clueless right now, and footage of Marsch in the 3-2 defeat against Fulham looked as though he had run out of ideas, and that is usually the beginning of the end.

With Liverpool, Bournemouth and Spurs to come before the World Cup, if Leeds are still in that bottom three once those fixtures are done, it could be curtains.

Radrizzani may have the final say, but with the 49ers in a position to seal that controlling stake whenever they like in the next couple of years, it may be time for them tp flex that muscle and put their foot down.
