Matt Kilgallon told BBC Radio Leeds that Jesse Marsch looked “tired” in his post-match press conference after Fulham came to Elland Road and beat Leeds United 3-2 – questioning whether we can stick with him until the World Cup.

Leeds took the lead on Sunday, Rodrigo heading home his fifth Premier League goal of the season. But Fulham came roaring back and by the time Crysencio Summerville had scored his first senior effort – The Cottagers had netted three.

A woeful result for Leeds. Our fourth consecutive Premier League defeat, and sixth loss in the last eight Premier League games. The pressure is ramping up on Leeds boss Marsch, with many fans now believing it is time the American goes.

Speaking after the defeat to Fulham, ex-Leeds defender Kilgallon thinks Marsch looks tired. He questioned whether Leeds can keep him in the dugout until the World Cup, with Liverpool and Tottenham to come before the break.

“He did didn’t he? I thought that [that he looked very tired], I thought that yes. Football is crazy isn’t it? He might go to Anfield and win, and it looks better. Does he keep the job until the World Cup? Four games, can you wait that long?”

Kilgallon: Marsch looked tired after Fulham beat Leeds at Elland Road

It was a hammer blow, especially with the run of games Leeds have until the World Cup. Games against a struggling Leicester – who to be fair, look as though they have turned a corner – and then Fulham, was a chance to win points.

But to concede five goals in those two matches, and get nothing from them, is a hammer blow. Leeds, at times, were improved from the loss to Leicester – but that is not hard. Next up is Liverpool at Anfield and it does look bleak.
