Pablo Hernandez has shown his thoughts on Leeds United’s decision to sack Jesse Marsch by taking to Instagram to like the club’s post confirming Marsch’s exit as manager – as has Mateusz Klich and new signing Diogo Monteiro.
Leeds have confirmed the exit of Marsch after a year in charge. It comes after he replaced Marcelo Bielsa last February. But, the American gaffer has failed to shine in the Leeds hotseat – despite keeping Leeds in the Premier League.
This season, we have simply not improved. Marsch has left Leeds sitting in 17th place in the Premier League, only above Everton in 18th on goal difference. Sunday’s loss to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground is the final straw.
Leeds took to Instagram after reports emerged on Monday afternoon that the club had parted ways with Marsch. Despite showing faith in Marsch in January – signing Max Wober and Weston McKennie – the club have let him go.
Hernandez and Klich like Leeds post confirming Marsch exit
Hernandez, of course, has loyalties to Marcelo Bielsa. The reaction to Bielsa being sacked by Leeds was an outcry by many sections of the Leeds fanbase. It was going one way but it was still sad to our legendary gaffer lose his job.
It was unceremonious. Unfortunately, Leeds decided to sack Bielsa and it worked initially, Marsch keeping Leeds in the top tier. But Hernandez is clearly among those that were pro-Bielsa. Klich, perhaps, too, having left Leeds in January.
He failed to start a single game in the League during the first half of the season and the feeling was, that Klich did not appreciate Marsch. Indeed, that lack of game time saw him miss out on Poland’s World Cup squad. Both liked the post.
They were among a number of players to like the post. Mateusz Bogusz, shunned out on loan again, too. Youngsters Cian Coleman and Luca Thomas, as well as new signing Diogo Monteiro, also liked the post confirming Marsch’s exit.
