Keith Hackett: Jesse Marsch set for touchline ban after Leeds United outrage
We’re delighted to welcome former Premier League referee Keith Hackett to the MOT Leeds News team. Each week, Hackett will discuss the big moments from the latest Leeds United games and deliver his verdict on whether his successors got their calls right or wrong…
Keith Hackett has insisted that Jesse Marsch will get a ban in the Premier League after his Leeds United outrage against Brentford last time out.
The ex-FIFA referee admitted that a fine worth up to £40,000 will also follow after he was sent to the stands by Robert Jones during the 5-2 defeat.
It comes after news broke of an FA charge over the past week, where he had until Friday (09 September) to respond, something that has come and gone
“He will get a ban,” he exclusively told MOT Leeds News.
“I expect him to get a ban, one game. It will be a fine of around £30-40,000. I think that what he has to do is take some operational advice and understand, he has come from America where, in a way, if any of us look at American Football, we see that from the managers, when a call goes against them they throw a bottle to the ground and it’s partly entertainment.
“It’s a little bit from that world, but he has to have some self-control in England, but what a bad decision from the referee.”
This would be nothing short of a joke.
After the now-sacked Thomas Tuchel got a suspended ban which meant he was fine to stay in the dugout for starting a full-on brawl with Antonio Conte and Spurs, the FA have no leg to stand on.
It was the shocking decision of Jones and the PGMOL not to hand the Whites a penalty for a foul on Crysencio Summerville that led to this, so they need to take some responsibility too.
