Leeds United news as Elland Road partners respond to Jesse Marsch message

The Official Training Wear Partners of Leeds United have issued a fond message to Jesse Marsch after the American broke his silence on being sacked as manager on Instagram.

Marsch was sacked from his position in the Elland Road dugout after just one year in charge, with his Leeds team 17th in the Premier League and only out of the relegation zone on goal difference.

After the American took to Instagram on Friday (31 March) for the first time since being sacked, Astonish Cleaners wished the former manager the best of luck in his future.

Replying to Marsch, they wrote: “Good luck Jesse”.

In the initial message, the former RB Leipzig boss detailed his pride at keeping the West Yorkshire club in the Premier League in the 2021/22 season and said he would take time to consider the next steps in his career.

Although Marsch’s time in the Elland Road dugout ended in disappointment, there were plenty of highs along the way.

The American was handed a poisoned chalice in trying to take over at Leeds from legendary figure Marcelo Bielsa, as well as starting the job with the club in serious threat of relegation from the Premier League.

The way Marsch galvanised the first team and managed to navigate them away from relegation will never be forgotten, and although he couldn’t replicate his success this season, he will be fondly remembered nonetheless.

Every week without fail, Marsch would bring passion and a strive to win that few other managers in the Premier League could match.

It still remains a mystery whether the former RB Leipzig boss would have led the Whites to safety this season, but the results became rotten and he began to look desperate in his final weeks at the helm.

The 49-year-old will likely have a fruitful managerial career when he decides to jump back into the ring, and you can’t help but feel that he is the perfect candidate for the USMNT vacancy.
