There have been murmurs of late that Leeds United could be considering replacing current manager Jesse Marsch – but The Mail have reported inside information regarding the board’s view of recent results under the American boss.
Leeds have won just five games from a possible 21 in all competitions this season. We last won a match at the start of November, beating Bournemouth 4-3 at Elland Road. We are firmly in the clutch of clubs that could end up relegated.
So, the pressure is on Marsch. Anything but a win against Cardiff City on Wednesday night at Elland Road will prove to put a huge nail in a potential coffin for the American manager. But as things stand, the Leeds board are content.
Indeed, the hierarchy which comprises of the 49ers – who own a 44% stake of the club. Andrea Radrizzani, the leading shareholder with 56%, CEO Angus Kinnear and sporting director Victor Orta – are impressed with the fight at Leeds.
The comeback to rescue a point against West Ham, thanks to Rodrigo’s neat finish. The fightback against Cardiff – again, helped by Rodrigo and Sonny Perkins. Then, the performance against Aston Villa – albeit, ending in a 2-1 loss.
“Club chiefs are impressed with the fight showed to claim a point against West Ham. To come back from two goals down at Cardiff. Even in Friday’s defeat, the performance of the side encouraged those in power at Elland Road”.
Mail report board’s view of recent Leeds results under Marsch
It has been awful for Leeds fans of late. Another defeat in the Premier League – and a worrying trend. Playing well, creating numerous chances and really, deserving to score more than one. But, failing to do so and losing once again.
It happened against Arsenal, Patrick Bamford missing a penalty. Leeds should have beaten Southampton, drawing 2-2. They could have beaten Everton, drawing 1-1. A loss to Fulham was harsh. The performances are certainly there.
But Marsch needs results. Leeds have got to beat Cardiff. Then, the next five crucial League games in which Leeds have a chance to get points. Brentford at home – then Manchester United. After that, Forest, Everton and Southampton.
