Leeds United staff share how they feel about Jesse Marsch after arrival at Elland Road

New manager Jesse Marsch has had quite the impression upon the Leeds United staff since his arrival at Elland Road.

Marcelo Bielsa was sacked after three and a half years last month with Marsch replacing him just a day later on 28 February.

Leed blogger I’d Radebe Leeds, an award-winning account across multiple social media sites, was at Elland Road this morning [10 March] ahead of the Whites’ clash with Aston Villa there.

And after speaking to the staff, it seems that Marsch has already made himself very popular behind the scenes in West Yorkshire.

I’d Radebe Leeds wrote on their Twitter account: “Was at Elland Road earlier this morning.

“Was great to hear from some club staff on the immediate impact Jesse Marsch has had at the club.

“Even the small stuff like stopping to chat to people, remembering names etc.

“Has given people a massive lift by all accounts.”

All-round nice guy

Marsch may have lost his first game in charge of Leeds but the American has won over the hearts of a lot of people since his arrival in West Yorkshire.

While we’ve seen all the tired cliches and reactions to an American making his way into English football, we’ve heard nothing but good things from Marsch so far.

We didn’t quite agree with his assessment that the performance was more important than the points in the defeat to Leicester but going forward, we’re still quite confident that this man can lead us to Premier League safety.

As good as Bielsa was for Leeds, the Argentine’s methods simply weren’t working and while he’d usually have been praised for his stubbornness, it went massively against him this time.

Marsch may have used similar personnel at the King Power last week but with the squad being so small and also being affected by injuries, he didn’t have much of a chance to be able to make changes.

But there were tactical tweaks, and that’s why we’ve gone from being absolutely battered to losing just 1-0.

It’s a small step, but it’s a step in the right direction.
