Leeds United have confirmed that Jesse Marsch and the backroom stagg will be leaving West Yorkshire in England after his poor run of results. The setback that Leeds suffered at the hands of fellow relegation rivals Nottingham Forest on Sunday moved them up one position in the Premier League standings, but they are still in danger of being in the relegation zone.
A club statement read on Monday: “Leeds United can confirm head coach Jesse Marsch has been relieved of his duties. Jesse joined the club in February 2022 and was instrumental in keeping the club in the Premier League on the final day of last season. Rene Maric, Cameron Toshack and Pierre Barrieu will also leave the club.
“We would like to thank Jesse and his backroom staff for their efforts and wish them well for the future. The process of appointing a new head coach is underway and we will continue to keep supporters up to date throughout the coming days.”
The Yorkshire team has only won four games in the league so far this season, and they are currently tied for 18th position with Everton on points despite Everton having a game in hand. The winter transfer season just saw Weston McKennie heading over to Leeds on a season-long loan from Juventus to join fellow American teammates and coach. Jesse Marsch unfortunately did not have time to fully integrate Mckennie into the team. When Leeds gave Marsch the job of head coach in February of 2022, he became the third American to hold that position in England’s top-flight league.
