Jesse Marsch sends Twitter message to fans after Leeds United loss v Arsenal
Jesse Marsch has taken to Twitter to send a message to the Leeds United fans after the 1-0 defeat against Arsenal at Elland Road.
The Whites took the game to the Gunners and nearly came away with something from it but Patrick Bamford missed a decisive penalty.
Even apart from that, they created plenty of chances to score not just one but two goals on Sunday afternoon and surely will have felt hard done by with the result.
Marsch wrote via his Twitter account, “It’s difficult to be patient as a manager, I want to win every game. I ask the lads to invest everything they have into our process & each other. My experience is that they will benefit massively from this mentality. We’re getting better, no doubt, & I back these men all the way.”
On the right path?
Prior to the Arsenal game, doubts were creeping in as to whether or not the American was the right man for the job and if he was taking the club on the right path.
There were statistics about him having one of the worst managerial records at the helm and the team looked in real danger of regressing.
However, after Sunday’s performance, Marsch showed that this team can even give the big boys a run for their money.
They looked combative, abrasive and exploited every weakness they could see in this Gunners side – sending a message to rest of the league that they’re there for the taking.
We will see games in which Leeds do not dominate this season and still end up winning, but not taking any point from that contest seemed like a disappointment.
Hopefully, the players bounce back soon as it’s a big game against Leicester and they cannot afford to not pick up three points against them.
