Tim Sherwood issues Jesse Marsch Leeds United 'sack' verdict after what he heard recently

Tim Sherwood believes that Jesse Marsch’s job is safe at Leeds United as he admitted he does not know what his expectations are.

The Sky Sports pundit heard the American’s interview with Bianca Westwood and then said that even if he gets sacked, he admits he would’ve done a good job.

The Whites are currently in 13th place, just three points clear of the relegation zone.

Sherwood said on Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports (09/10, 3pm), “It was interesting when Bianca interviewed him there and said ‘what are the expectations’ and he said ‘we are not sure yet’.

“He could end up getting sacked and you have pretty much think he has done well.

“Normally when you take a job you ask what the expectations are, if you are going to be successful or not.

“But he mentioned every executive there and chairman and owner and he still doesn’t know what the expectations are. I think his job is safe.”

Survival expectations

We think that if Leeds do not get relegated this season, Marsch’s job is safe.

He isn’t a radical coach who completely overhauls things at clubs and isn’t even unpopular, be it with the players, fans or owners.

Ideally, Andrea Radrizzani would want the Whites to be away from any relegation trouble and have their Premier League status secured by gameweek 30 or 31.

However, it does not always work out like that and that’s possibly why there are no realistic expectations kept for this season.

If they feel that this team is in freefall, they will not hesitate to pull the trigger as they did the same thing with Marcelo Bielsa who was idolised at Elland Road.

This is a results business just as much as it is an entertainment one and Marsch cannot get one without the other without serious questions being asked.
