Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch would be perfect man to manage in Premier League all-star game
In Jesse Marsch, Leeds United have a manager who could become one of the world’s best, even if they don’t know it just yet.
The American is starting to be able to imprint his tactical ideas on the Whites’ dressing room and it is reaping rewards with stunning victories against some of the Premier League’s top teams.
The consistency is far from being there right now but it will come and when it does, he could be a manager that is in the running for Todd Boehly’s proposed Premier League all-star game.
The new Chelsea owner has suggested that the most watched league in the world should be taking a leaf out of America’s book and bringing the very best together for a blockbuster event.
“People are talking about more money for the pyramid, in the MLB All-Star game this year we made 200 million dollars from a Monday and a Tuesday,” he said, as quoted by The Athletic.
“So we’re thinking we could do a North versus South All-Star game for the Premier League, for whatever the pyramid needed quite easily.”
And with Leeds representing the north, obviously, Marsch would have some very tough competition in the dugout in the form of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.
But both of those have extremely specific play styles that only suit certain players so when the best of the best from around the region come together, they might not be the best choice for the role.
Marsch, on the other hand, is someone who can get along with anybody and fit any player that comes his way into the style he desires to utilise which is an exceptional quality.
He proved last season that he can get the best out of whatever squad he is given and that is the overriding quality that would be needed for such a game.
