MailPlus report that Leeds United are not currently considering a move to bring in Sean Dyche as manager, to replace Jesse Marsch – despite rumours coming out on social media suggesting a short-term deal for the ex-Burnley boss.
Dyche, 51, spent 10 years at Burnley as manager. Gaining promotion to the Premier League in 2015-16, he kept Burnley up until he was sacked earlier this year. In his 10-year spell at Burnley, Dyche managed a huge 425 games at Turf Moor.
But he was sacked by Burnley towards the end of last season. It saw caretaker boss Mike Jackson come in, setting up an enthralling fight for survival for Leeds – one which Leeds won, by the skin of our teeth. Dyche remains out of work.
He appeared on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football last night. Normally a sign that a manager is looking to get back into work. But MailPlus state that Leeds are not interested in bringing Dyche to the club, as a short-term replacement.
Leeds not considering Dyche as manager to replace Marsch, right now
While the pressure on Marsch is going up and up and many are keen to see the Leeds board sack the American gaffer – bringing Dyche in would not go down well. Leeds fans pride themselves on watching an exciting brand of football.
Something which became synonymous with the club during Marcelo Bielsa’s reign. Marsch has come in to replace the Argentine, because he was seen as having a similar style of football to Bielsa. For Victor Orta to rip that up, is unlikely.
Dyche would do just that. He would be a firefighter, making Leeds a defensive, hard-to-beat side but lacking any kind of goal threat. Patrick Bamford did not enjoy his time under Dyche at Burnley. It would not be the right appointment.
