Jesse Marsch has one game to save Leeds United job after shocker v Leicester City
Jesse Marsch must hang his head in shame after Leeds United crashed to defeat against Leicester City on Thursday 20th October, it was just not good enough.
The American made some huge changes, bringing in the likes of Junior Firpo, Diego Llorente and Crysencio Summerville as his side lost 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.
That wasn’t the worst part as Marsch then decided to ignore the fans at full-time, leading to chants asking where he had gone from the travelling faithful.
Starting with that team selection, it was embarrassing.
Firpo coming for Pascal Struijk was forced, but the Spaniard is waring thin on our patience as he commits silly fouls continuously and seems to offer nothing else.
It doesn’t get much, if any better with Llorente, who inexplicably came in to replace our captain, Liam Cooper, in a move that can only be described as brainless.
Crysencio Summerville has been amazing for the under-21s, we have to admit, but the Premier League appears to be one step too far right now with his final product nowhere near good enough – especially when leaving someone like Jack Harrison on the bench.
Don’t even get us started on the substitutes.
Bringing on Cooper was potentially forced after Robin Koch’s nightmare first half, but it only proved that there was nothing wrong with the skipper, who should have started.
Taking off Luis Sinisterra and Patrick Bamford when chasing the game was simply embarrassing, not to mention the move to put Harrison at left-back.
Marsch keeps talking about this fighting spirit he wants to instil, but it starts with him and he is losing his head on the touchline with some of these inexplicable decisions.
Andrea Radrizzani has to be watching this closely, you cannot afford to fall behind in the Premier League.
Leeds are currently one point above the drop zone after picking up two points from a possible 21, and the game against Fulham is now huge, no word about it.
If Marsch loses against the Cottagers with Liverpool to come after, he may well be packing his bags at Elland Road, and not many would complain – time to save your job, Jesse.
