Phil Hay shares update on Jesse Marsch touchline ban amid recent Leeds United development

Jesse Marsch could be hit with a fine if the charge against the Leeds United manager is upheld for his antics over the weekend.

According to the Athletic’s Phil Hay, he is likely to face a touchline ban after being sent off in the 5-2 defeat against Brentford for the language he used while protesting a decision.

Leeds will be taking on Nottingham Forest next before squaring off against arch-rivals Manchester United.

On Tuesday afternoon (6 September), the FA wrote, “Leeds United FC’s Jesse Marsch has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3 following their Premier League game against Brentford on Saturday [03/09/22].

“It is alleged that the manager’s language and/or behaviour during the 64th minute was improper, and he has until Friday [09/09/22] to provide a response.”

Likely to be upheld

Marsch is well aware of the language he used and he was nearly encroaching the pitch and was constantly telling off the officials.

There’s no way that he wasn’t guilty of breaking a couple of laws and the FA do they take their protection of referees seriously, even when it comes to criticism.

While that’s a good stand to have, they’ve got to do something more to ensure that the standard of officiating is also at a high.

Managers lose points and jobs because of a few decisions that go the other way so they need to act like a lot is riding on every call – because it quite usually is.

Missing Marsch’s influence on the touchline will be a blow for Leeds but they will have to find a way to combat it.

He’s likely to call all the major shots and will be picking the elevens as well – and he will have confidence in his trusted group of coaches to go out and get the job done.
