Beren Cross shares latest update on Jesse Marsch's Leeds United future ahead of clash v Liverpool
Jesse Marsch is expected to still be the Leeds manager when the team travel to Anfield on Saturday night to face off with Liverpool, says Beren Cross.
The Whites slipped into the relegation zone on Sunday night when they fell to a 3-2 defeat at Elland Road against Fulham, making it six losses in eight games.
But despite their worst run of form since Marcelo Bielsa was sacked, there are currently no plans for Marsch to be sacked and the expectation is that the American will still be in the dugout for the next game.
“No change in Leeds United’s outlook on Jesse Marsch today,” Cross said on his personal Twitter account [24 October].
“Expect him to be in the dugout at Liverpool.”
There’s loyalty and then there is blind stupidity, and that’s what the Leeds board is currently doing with Marsch by keeping him in a job.
Everyone knows that once the fans turn on a manager there is never really a way back for him, and that has happened with Leeds and Marsch.
There was good will for the boss after he helped steer us away from relegation last season, and with Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips leaving this summer he was given a grace period to get the team performing.
But with no wins since August, all that good will has evaporated and the club are just delaying the inevitable by sticking by him for longer than necessary.
It’s the wrong decision and the club need to act fast otherwise we’re likely to face a repeat of last season’s troubles and we may not be so lucky to avoid the drop this time around.
