Josh Warrington delivers verdict on Jesse Marsch's Leeds United future

Josh Warrington has delivered his verdict on Leeds United head coach Jesse Marsch’s future at the club, urging fans to stick by the American.

It’s been a whirlwind of a season for Marsch so far and the Leeds boss seems to be on the good side of some fans after wins against Liverpool and Bournemouth.

One of them who wants to keep Marsch at the helm is Warrington, who has confessed that the club need to stick with the “entertaining” Leeds United boss over appointing someone like Sean Dyche.

“Since Bielsa arrived, the club has been quite united. There have been one or two times this season the ‘sack the board’ chants have been heard. For me, you need to stick with him [Marsch],” said Warrington as quoted by Leeds Live.

“We are playing entertaining football and we have had a few good results over the last few weeks. Yeah, we lost to Tottenham but I feel we should have come away with something from there.

“All of sudden we have bounced up the table and we are not in the relegation zone and everything has just calmed down a little bit. You have got to stay positive and stick with Jesse.

“I am not all about changing managers very quick. Who are we going to get in, Sean Dyche? No disrespect but I want to watch entertaining football. When you are sat at a freezing Elland Road on a Tuesday night you want to watch something decent.”

Lifeline.

Marsch has definitely got another lifeline in the Leeds United dugout after recent Premier League displays, but there’s a long way to go.

Warrington may be won over may the American tactician’s exciting brand of football but leaking goals at the back aren’t good for anyone.

Especially not the Whites league position, which could easily be a lot worse right now if the team hadn’t scored multiple goals.

Fortunately, with the FIFA World Cup break and the January transfer window on the horizon, there’s a chance for Marsch to get his tactics and signings spot on.

Signing a left-back and centre-forward have to be the priorities for the club now, if they fail to sign either, there’s a strong possibility things will go south for Marsch.

The attacking flair is there and adding a poacher to this would only spice things up, but the team’s defensive capabilities need a vast amount of changes and improvement.
