BBC Sport journalist shares update on Jesse Marsch future at Leeds United after 3-2 defeat v Fulham

The Leeds United board faces a “big test” of their stance on Jesse Marsch’s future at Elland Road after the 3-2 defeat to Fulham, according to Simon Stone.

The BBC Sport journalist reported on Twitter on Sunday (23 October) that Marsch repeated that the board was “unified” over his future at the West Yorkshire club in the wake of the defeat at Leicester.

But after losing at home against Fulham, Stone claims that the board’s loyalty towards the American is set to be tested with a clash against Liverpool on the horizon.

Get rid

Who else is shocked that Marsch is in this situation?

We’re not.

He was sacked by RB Leipzig after not spending much time there and he only just kept Leeds up last season without really seeing any improvement on what Marcelo Bielsa did.

Leeds haven’t won since August and are now in the Premier League’s relegation zone with a tricky clash against unpredictable Liverpool coming up.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if we’re managerless going into that game. Or, at the very least, Marsch isn’t in the dug out.

Marsch can bark at officials, play the nice guy in press conferences and use his connections to the Red Bull empire and the USA to make signings.

But tactically, it’s inept and we’re constantly losing games because Marsch simply cannot get this defence to keep out stupidly simple goals.

It’s time for him to go.
