After Marcelo Bielsa’s departure on Sunday, Jesse Marsch was named the new head coach of Leeds United on a three-and-a-half-year contract. Following a 4-0 loss to Tottenham, the Argentine was sacked, leaving Leeds in 16th place in the Premier League table, two points above the relegation zone. Marsch, who has previously managed at the New York Red Bulls and RB Salzburg, has signed a contract until June 2025 and will be entrusted with improving Leeds’ current form, with the team having gone six league games without a win.
Marsch and the club, however, mutually parted company in early December, with a 6-3 hammering by Manchester City in the club’s first Champions League game contributing to his departure. Victor Orta, Leeds United Director of Football, stated on the appointment: “We are thrilled to have Jesse join the club and look forward to him leading us into this new chapter. “Jesse is a player we spotted a few years ago while he was at Red Bull Salzburg, and we believe his philosophy and style of play are in line with the club’s and will complement the players well.
“We have a long-term strategy and are confident in his ability to take Leeds United to the next level. We are looking forward to what the future holds.” “We are incredibly pleased to have rapidly acquired the services of our first-choice head coach,” said Chief Executive Angus Kinnear. While Jesse’s short-term goal is clear, we feel he has the bravery and ambition to build on the solid foundations we’ve laid over the last four years and improve the club’s long-term success.
