Sky Sports pundit discusses if Pochettino or Dyche could get the Leeds job

Clinton Morrison has told Sky Sports News’ coverage of Tuesday’s matches (7.15PM) that he believes Leeds United are not big enough for Mauricio Pochettino – but that Sean Dyche could be the ideal man to replace Jesse Marsch.

Our American gaffer remains in the Leeds dugout by the skin of his teeth. Despite keeping Leeds up last season, and then spending well in the summer and beginning the 2022-23 campaign in excellent form, things have plummeted.

Since two draws and a win in our first three games – including the 3-0 victory over Chelsea – Leeds have gone winless for two months. Six losses, two draws. The dismal form of late has seen Leeds plummet into the relegation zone.

Morrison was discussing a potential replacement for Marsch last night. He thinks Pochettino, having managed PSG and Tottenham, will be waiting for a top-six team. But Dyche is desperate to return and Leeds could be perfect for him.

“I don’t think Pochettino because there was talk of Aston Villa. I think Pochettino wants to manage a top-six team. But I do believe a Bielsa or a Sean Dyche – obviously I saw him on Monday Night Football – he’s itching to get back into it.

“Leeds fans might not be happy with the style of play but if there’s one thing Sean Dyche does do, he’ll keep you in the Premier League nine times out of 10. He did it at Burnley. He’s a fantastic manager,” Morrison told Sky Sports News.

Morrison: Leeds not big enough for Pochettino but Dyche could be ideal

Despite Marcelo Bielsa’s connection with Pochettino, Morrison is probably right regarding the Argentine. Although out of work after being sacked by PSG and replaced by Christopher Galtier, Leeds are below him at this moment in time.

But Dyche is clearly looking for a new job. He appeared on Monday Night Football, which is always a pretty decent sign of a manager reminding all that he is out there. Eddie Howe appeared on the show, before getting the Newcastle job.

Should Leeds really consider Dyche? A few weeks ago, the majority of supporters would have thrown the idea in the bin. But now, there are some fans – after a glance on social media – that would welcome the idea of Dyche.
