Sean Dyche could be in contention for Leeds United managerial job

Jesse Marsch is in “real trouble” of losing his job at Leeds United, as per Luke Edwards of The Telegraph.

Speaking on BBC Radio Football Daily podcast (23 October), Edwards has suggested that Marsch has been assured that his job is safe for the time being.

However, the Whites could also consider bringing in Sean Dyche at Elland Road if the results do not improve.

“Jesse Marsch could come in for a nasty shock. Six defeats in the last eight, no win since August. When the fans turn, you’re in real trouble,” said Edwards on BBC Radio Football Daily.

“I think he’s told this evening that his job is safe. I think the owners and the board were in his office at Elland Road last week. I think he will get some more time but there is the specter of a certain Sean Dyche hanging over as well.

“He is out of work. He wants to come back in. October-November, we call it a sacking season and Jesse Marsch could well be the next man to get the boot.”


This is getting serious now and the fans have voiced their frustrations. This is unacceptable.

No win since August, and Leeds are drifting away at the moment. The root cause remains unsolved, and Marsch has no clue how to rectify it.

The Whites are still over the place in defence. When you’re not playing well, or the results are not coming your way, clubs tend to tighten at the back and make sure they don’t give away cheap goals.

Leeds are simply not learning from their past mistakes. They still concede goals from set pieces, and every time there is a cross in the box, there is panic at the back.

The players are running out of confidence. With Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, and West Ham to play in their next few games, it really looks difficult how Marsch can still hold on to his job.

Dyche is a completely different type of manager. He knows how to keep the team in the Premier League, but the football may not be entertaining.

The 51-year-old probably is ideal at the moment as Leeds need to stay in the Premier League to run their business, but his managerial methods and philosophy are completely different from Marsch or Marcelo Bielsa.
