Sean Dyche 'only man' who can replace Jesse Marsch as Leeds United sack verdict revealed - Sky Sports pundit
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
There’s no better manager than Sean Dyche to keep Leeds United in the Premier League if they’re forced to sack Jesse Marsch over concerns about relegation, according to Paul Robinson.
Dyche, 51, has been out of work since being sacked by Burnley late last season but he’s found himself linked with a potential vacancy at Elland Road with Marsch under pressure in West Yorkshire.
Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards told the BBC Radio Football Daily podcast on 23 October that Dyche would be a contender to replace Marsch if he’s sacked. The Daily Mail, however, claims that Leeds would be “reluctant” to hire a survival expert such as the ex-Burnley boss.
Either way, Robinson firmly believes Dyche is the right man for Leeds if Marsch is axed this season due to relegation concerns.
“If Jesse Marsch is to go, that means Leeds would be in a predicament in terms of their Premier League safety,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News. “Sean Dyche would be the only manager they could turn to if that is the case.
“Marsch got a fantastic win at Anfield but if things turn sour further down the line then they’re going to be in a predicament where their Premier League safety is a concern. That would be the only reason for them to get rid of Marsch now, if they’re in danger.
“And if that is the case, Dyche is the only man they could bring in.
“Regardless of what people think about his style of football, give him an opportunity with a bigger budget, better players and another level.
“We’re far too guilty of that with English managers not being given an opportunity.
“Leeds are a bigger club than Burnley and with the 49ers, they’ll have a bigger transfer budget. I’ve worked with Dyche and he’s more than capable of working with big players and a big budget.
“If things with Marsch turn sour then the remit will be to keep the club in the Premier League. There’s no better man to do it than Dyche and if he then does do that, he should then be given an opportunity to build on it.“
In other Leeds United news, a European club has confirmed they’ll be doing an official farewell for a player who’s been signed by the Whites.
