Leeds United v Liverpool could be Jesse Marsch's last in charge - Alexi Lalas

With every game that passes by without victory for Leeds United, Jesse Marsch is put under even more pressure as the club’s manager.

There was very obvious and loud discontent at Elland Road on Sunday (23 October) as the Whites were comprehensively beaten by Fulham 3-1.

Former United States international and now pundit Alexi Lalas believes that Leeds’ game away at Liverpool on Saturday evening (29 October) could be his last in the hot seat.

“Jesse Marsch, his job is to keep this team up this year. A team like Fulham, you at least want to go get a point,” Lalas said on his State of Union podcast.

“When it comes to Leeds right now and Jesse Marsch, yeah, he is under pressure and rightfully so.

“Not because he is an American coach, but because he is a coach in a situation where they are trying to get somebody that can steady the ship and keep them in the league.

“I don’t know if and when they were to pull the plug but the shouts when it comes to fans out there have gotten loud. This could be the last week that we see Jesse Marsch. Even though Liverpool is not Liverpool of old, it’s still Liverpool.”

World Cup wait

Leeds United only have three Premier League games to play until the World Cup break takes effect in November and it might not be the right time to sack a manager as a result.

Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta might be better suited to waiting until after these next three games, two of which are against Liverpool and Manchester City, before making their move.

That would not only give the new manager, whoever it may be, plenty of time to work on their own tactics on the training ground with the majority of the squad together but also allow Marsch one last chance to get it right.

There have been plenty of glimpses that the American has the right attitude and the team is doing everything they can to get it bang on but they have only hit their marks once all season (at home to Chelsea).

They very nearly got something from Arsenal and teams who come onto them such as Liverpool and City might suit them but they have to beat Bournemouth in between, no questions asked.
