Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch angry with cameraman after Brighton draw
Leeds United dragged themselves out of the relegation zone on Sunday (15 May) with a last-gasp equaliser to make it 1-1 at home to Brighton.
Danny Welbeck’s cute finish had the Seagulls in front but a moment of brilliance from Joe Gelhardt out wide set up a cross for Pascal Struijk to head home in stoppage time and send Elland Road wild.
After the game, the players and staff all did a lap of honour for their final home game of the season but manager Jesse Marsch was still not completely happy as he applauded the fans.
As highlighted by Leeds Live, the 48-year-old American was being very closely watched by a cameraman as he strolled alongside Jack Harrison during the said lap of honour.
Unimpressed by this, the boss ushered the operator away with a stern look on his face as he continued on his way around the pitch after the full-time whistle.
Welcome to England
If Marsch isn’t best pleased about cameras in his face and a lot of attention, then he’s come to the wrong league and he should pack his bags back to the States.
There is not a league in the world that gets more eyes or attention than the Premier League and every manager and player who plays in the division knows full well what they can expect from the media.
A club the size of Leeds will always get more eyes than some as well, especially in a relegation scrap and the calmness he showed to just usher the cameraman away, despite being visibly annoyed by him, shows he can handle the pressure.
The Whites have to now go to Brentford and get a result if Burnley can find something in midweek to drop us back in the mire and if we do go down, Marsch can expect the cameras back in his face again.
