Jesse Marsch accused of 'living dangerously' during Leeds United vs Brighton

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch was accused of “living dangerously” during the first-half of the game against Brighton after shoving Brenden Aaronson.

The American duo were together on the touchline with the player receiving treatment, before Marsch shoved him back onto the pitch to help the Whites during a tough game.

But according to journalist Joe Donnohue on his personal Twitter account, the boss was given a “last warning” by the fourth official for it and could find himself in further trouble if the second half continues in the same vein.

Leeds struggled in the first half with just one shot off target in the game, but managed to defend well against an in-form Brighton side to keep the scores level.

Pressure

Leeds have been a very good attacking outfit so far this season and defensively they’ve looked shaky, and this game has been another showcase of exactly that.

Defensively they’ve been far too open and left themselves in danger a lot, picking up several yellow cards along the way, but they’ve also struggled big time to create anything meaningful.

The frustration was clear in the team but also with the manager, who was incredibly animated throughout the half and clearly unhappy with the way the game had been going and ended up almost stepping over the line.

He’ll have to be careful not to get the attention of the officials in the second half again, but also must find a way to motivate his team and get them flying in the second half with a big performance needed to secure points.

All eyes on how he manages to turn this one around, without getting himself in danger of missing the next game.
