Spotted: Angus Kinnear tells Leeds United fans about Jesse Marsch situation outside Elland Road after loss v Fulham

Footage has emerged of Angus Kinnear speaking to Leeds United fans in a car park outside Elland Road after the 3-2 defeat to Fulham on Sunday.

Leeds have dropped into the Premier League’s relegation zone and manager Jesse Marsch is now under enormous pressure to turn things around.

Fans were heard chanting for Marsch and the board to be sacked at the back-end of the loss against Fulham but Kinnear has suggested that he still has full confidence in the American to get the Whites back on track.

“Look, the results aren’t good enough – everyone knows that,” said Kinnear, as shown in a video clip shared by a Leeds fan called Steve.

“We’re working behind the scenes to try and fix it.

“The players are working hard, Jesse’s working really hard, the backroom staff are working really hard.”

When asked by a fan if he’s got confidence in Marsch, Kinnear said: “You know, we still think he can do a great job for us.

“We’ll just keep working hard and focus on the next game and that’s the best we can do.

“The players are giving 100 per cent. I tell you, they’re devastated in there.”

When told it’s Leeds versus Liverpool next, Kinnear admitted “it’s tough” before the video clip ended.

Time to go?

Marsch has had a chance to make his mark on the squad.

He oversaw the signings of Tyler Adams, Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen in the summer – three former players of his – but there hasn’t been any real improvement in results.

Marsch lost Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha in the summer, admittedly. But this Leeds squad has more strength in depth than the one last season and we’re still in the Premier League relegation zone.

We were fortunate to not go down last season because let’s be honest, Marsch didn’t oversee an improvement.

Marcelo Bielsa might as well have stayed because we doubt he’d have taken us down and even if he did, at least we’d have trusted him to get us right back up.

But Marsch seems like a dead man walking now.

Kinnear’s given a half-hearted vote of confidence here and it’s hardly convincing.
