Leeds sack manager Jesse Marsch

Leeds United have sacked manager Jesse Marsch after less than one year in charge at Elland Road.

His last game as Whites manager was a 1-0 defeat against newly promoted Nottingham Forest on Sunday, meaning Leeds have now played seven Premier League matches without a win.

Leeds’ dismal form has left them 17th in the table, above 18th place Everton only on goal difference. They have only managed to win four Premier League games this season, drawing six and losing ten.

The last win for Marsch’s men came on 5 November in a 4-3 home victory over Bournemouth.

Marsch managed to secure Leeds’ Premier League status on the final day of the 2021/22 season by beating Brentford 1-2 after he succeeded previous head coach Marcelo Bielsa last February.

The American’s backroom staff, including coaches Rene Maric, Cameron Toshack and Pierre Barrieu have also been sacked.

Marsch departs the Yorkshire club with a 25% win rate out of 32 Premier League games in charge.

Leeds face arch-rivals Manchester United twice over the next week – first at Old Trafford on Wednesday and then at Elland Road on Sunday – as they attempt to stave off relegation.
