Jesse Marsch opens up on his Leeds United future ahead of Brentford clash

Jesse Marsch has made it absolutely clear that he will not leave Leeds United even if they get relegated this season.

The Whites are teetering on the verge of relegation. They are tied on the same points with Burnley but have a poor goal difference.

Marsch says that he has got full support from the club hierarchy and that he is here on a long-term project.

Marsch said, as relayed by Phil Hay on Twitter: “Absolutely. When we talked about coming this was about a long-term project. I’m thankful the club committed to me. The support I’ve had has been amazing. But right now I’m not thinking about the long term.”

Must win

There is still hope that the Whites will avoid the drop on the final day.

Newcastle United are in good form at the moment, and they should be looking to end the season on a high.

Burnley have improved in recent weeks but beating Newcastle won’t be easy.

For Leeds, this is a must-win game. A draw won’t be enough.

They have to win to give themselves a chance to secure their Premier League safety.

Given their poor goal difference, even a win probably won’t be enough especially if Burnley win their respective game.

Basically, Leeds will have to hope that they pick something from their game, and the Magpies do them a favour by winning at Turf Moor.

Marsch has made a positive impact at the club since taking over from Marcelo Bielsa.

With so many key players injured, it was a difficult campaign, but he could still guide them to Premier League safety.

In any case, it seems, he is determined to stay and execute his long-term plans.
