Leeds likely to stick with Marsch

Leeds United have reportedly handed Jesse Marsch a huge show of faith, with the World Cup break now in full flow…

What’s the latest?

As per Dean Jones, it seems as though the Whites will be keeping the American as their manager for the foreseeable future, despite claims suggesting he might have been sacked circulating at the end of October.

His recent form has seemingly changed opinions, and the transfer insider had the following to say on reports coming out of Thorp Arch, speaking to GIVEMESPORT: “I still think it’s unlikely that they get rid of him, the talk a few weeks ago was like he’s got until the World Cup break and then they’ll assess things.

“But we also know that Leeds really want to stick by Marsch, and since they sent out those messages about him, Leeds have been more entertaining, they’ve scored more goals.”

It’s good news

In what has been a tumultuous season thus far for fans at Elland Road, it seems that in recent weeks Marsch finally began to inspire some good performances from his side.

Having started the season well, winning two and earning a point on the road in their opening three Premier League fixtures, it seemed like the hefty turnover in the transfer window might instantly pay dividends.

However, a seven-match winless run, including four straight losses, unsurprisingly brought about pressure.

It therefore made their incredible victory away at Liverpool even more special, as they scored late to snatch their first win since they had massacred Chelsea in August.

Marsch’s side then backed that up with another good result, battling from 3-1 down to secure a famous win at Bournemouth.

Despite their narrow loss to Tottenham Hotspur just before the break, they still denoted a spirit unforeseen throughout the season beforehand.

To spark such a sensational turnaround is indicative of a manager still boasting the full backing of his squad, even if they are looking somewhat leaky at the back.

Historically, it has always been the sides who struggle to score that end up in a relegation battle.

But with seven goals scored in their last two games, and a big break and transfer window looming, there can only be improvements that should help steer them from another miserable campaign.
