Forget Pochettino and Dyche, here are five out-of-work managers Leeds may consider

With Jesse Marsch hanging by a thread at Leeds United, there has been plenty of talk already – discussing who could replace the American at Elland Road. At LeedsUnited.News, we are still hopeful that our American boss makes it work.

Clinton Morrison spoke on Sky Sports News last night, discussing whether Marcelo Bielsa could return. He also thinks Leeds are not big enough for Mauricio Pochettino, while Sean Dyche might be ideal. But all three are unlikely.

Bielsa would be a fairytale, but a fairytale at best. Pochettino as Morrison says, is out of our league. Dyche would not go down well with fans. So, if Marsch is to go, here are five out-of-work managers that Leeds may look to consider:

Five out-of-work managers Leeds may consider:

Julien Lopetegui

One of the best managers without a job. The 56-year-old left Sevilla this month, after 90 wins in 170 games. A Europa League winner, with Real Madrid and Spain on his CV. Back in 2020, The Sun said Leeds were considering Lopetegui.

Young at 37, Tedesco was sacked by Leipzig this season. He tidied up the mess left by Marsch at Leipzig last season – winning 20 of his 40 games. He has also managed Schalke and Spartak Moscow. Could he tidy Marsch’s mess again?

Peter Bosz

Bosz, 58, is still waiting for his next venture after a tricky spell at Lyon. TalkSPORT say Wolves interviewed the Dutch gaffer and were impressed. An attacking manager, Bosz also has taken charge at Dortmund, Leverkusen and Ajax.


One of Bielsa’s predecessors at Bilbao, 57-year-old Marcelino is incredibly experienced – but is yet to step foot out of Spain. With 823 games and 11 different jobs in his home country, could he finally try his luck at a non-Spanish side?

Andre Villas-Boas

A left-field one, but a manager that boasts many traits Leeds might look for. Attacking, charismatic and with Premier League experience. The ex-Chelsea and Spurs boss, 45, starred at Marseille – one of Bielsa’s old sides, in his last role.
