Jesse Marsch reacts as behind-the-scenes Leeds United footage emerges online

Jesse Marsch has responded after footage emerged of the Leeds United boss surprising fans who were on a stadium tour of Elland Road.

Leeds United’s official Twitter account (19 December) posted footage of Marsch entering the dressing room and taking photos with fans during their tour.

The American has since commented on the Twitter post by the club after the heart-warming video emerged on Monday.

Marsch wrote: “Love it!!” (personal Twitter account, 19 December).

Whatever happens for the remainder of the 2022/23 season, fans will realise that Marsch is trying his hardest to be fully invested in West Yorkshire. It will certainly buy him more time if Leeds do hit another poor run of form in the coming weeks and months.

Very few Premier League managers would do what Marsch did on Monday and it shows that he understands the value of the connection between himself and the Elland Road faithful. Another positive result against Manchester City in Leeds’ next fixture would certainly put the American back in high regard.

The Premier League champions head to Leeds looking to get their title challenge back on track. The Whites have shown they can mix it with the top six sides this season having beaten Chelsea and Liverpool, as well as giving Arsenal a scare.

It will be good to see the smile still on Marsch’s face after Pep Guardiola’s side have visited Elland Road.

In other Leeds United news, an attacker linked with a move to Elland Road claims that he could leave his Champions League club in the January transfer window.
