According to Phil Hay of The Athletic, former Leeds manager Jesse Marsch may return to the Premier League with Southampton.
The American coach was sacked after a poor run of games, with Leeds having won only one league game since November. The Athletic report that Southampton are looking to bring the 49-year old on board to save their season.
“The south coast side’s interest in Marsch predates Sport Republic’s arrival in January 2022. Marsch’s experience working in the Red Bull system, like former manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, appeals to Southampton as there are certain similarities in regards to pressing style and system.
The former Leeds manager has remained in England since being dismissed at the start of the week.” Hay wrote in the report.
Southampton sit bottom of the league with 15 points from 22 games, and dismissed Nathan Jones after just 14 games in charge.
